April 10, 2020 – The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention extended its No Sail Order for all cruise ships with US ports-of-call, as it looks to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus pandemic.

The CDC new order says that cruise ships have to cease operations for up to 100 days (around July 17th), or the expiration of the Secretary of Health and Human Services’ declaration that COVID-19 constitutes a public health emergency, or if the CDC Director rescinds or modifies the order.

The order, dated April 9, comes as the cruise industry is taking a hit from the COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak, with cruise trips across the globe either canceled or suspended and millions of dollars in refunds issued to customers.

Additionally, CDC is aware of 20 cruise ships at port or anchorage in the United States with known or suspected COVID-19 infection among the crew who remain onboard.
