Holland America and Princess Cruises Cancel Alaska Voyages Scheduled for Early 2021 Due to Pandemic

Signaling that the coronavirus pandemic will continue to impact Alaska’s tourist season, Holland America and Princess Cruises have announced that they will cancel several sailings in 2021. Carnival Corp. brands Princess Cruises and Holland America issued statements Wednesday that rules imposed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and uncertainty around travel restrictions prompted the cancellation of trips through at least mid-May.

Two competing companies in the Alaska cruise market, Celebrity Cruise Lines and Norwegian Cruise Lines, have not yet canceled Alaska-bound voyages.  However, similar announcements are expected from these companies in the coming days.
