Cruise lines have agreed to suspend sailing from United States ports until September 15, trade group Cruise Lines International Association announced Friday (June 19).
The cruise industry closed their doors in March from US ports in an effort to stop the spread of coronavirus.
Florida has the main three ports in the world for the cruise: Miami, Port Canaveral and Port Everglades.
“Due to the ongoing situation within the US related to COVID-19, CLIA member cruise lines have decided to voluntarily extend the period of suspended passenger operations,” the organisation said in a statement.
“Although we had hoped that cruise activity could resume as soon as possible after that date, it is increasingly clear that more time will be needed to resolve barriers to the resumption in the United States,” the organisation said.
Majority cruise lines planned their journey on the sea on July 31 but would have needed approval from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on safety measure.
