Alaska cruise cancellations

NCL is cancelling all sailing through August 30, 2020. It is also putting the brakes on September sailings. However Alaska cruises from Seattle are still a go.  But both Norwegian Bliss’s Oct. 12, 2020 and Norwegian’s Joy Oct. 4, 2020  voyages are suspended.

Also included in the cancellations are the Oct.4 to Oct. 11 Canada/New England cruises on Norwegian Breakaway.  And the Oct. 2 to October 29 on Norwegian Gem. Such a pity as the fall foliage is awesome then.

The cruise line is offering refunds and credits.

Here’s the skinny
