Cruise line cancels all depatures up to March 2021

Mediterranean cruise operator Celestyal has cancelled all cruises until next spring.

The cruise line, which was one of the first to suspend cruise operations in mid-March, said it wouldn't resume sailings until March 2021.

Chief commercial officer Leslie Peden said: "Given the prevailing uncertainty regarding travel restrictions through the balance of our operating season from our largest international source markets, coupled with the continuing discussions at European Union level regarding the enhanced health protocols that will apply to cruise operations, we made the difficult but prudent decision to postpone resuming cruise operations until the scheduled start of our normal spring season next year.

"We felt that as a company, we have already put our travel partners and guests through enough date changes on when cruising could return safely."

It is offering a Future Cruise Credit (FCC) valued at 120% of the original booking value for guests who have already paid for trips that now won't go ahead.

Guests will have until the end of 2021 to redeem credit against any of Celestyal Cruises' itineraries until the end of 2022, otherwise they will automatically receive a refund of the original fee.
