Cruise News Recap | Week of January 2, 2022

Welcome to the Cruise Radio News review for the week of January 2 to 8, 2022, where you’ll find the most up-to-date cruise news, our weekly podcast, and a current YouTube video.

1. Cruise operators have begun canceling cruises this week. Royal Caribbean has canceled a number of voyages on three of its ships due to “ongoing COVID-related problems.” The commencement date for a fourth vessel has also been pushed back.

2. A Panama Canal itinerary was revised by Carnival Cruise Line only 24 hours before the ship was scheduled to depart Baltimore, Maryland. The vessel was initially planned to sail a 14-night Panama Canal tour; however, due to quickly shifting “COVID-related conditions,” the cruise operator has curtailed the cruise to a 10-night voyage.

3. Due to the effect of the Omicron version on Norwegian’s ships, the line has canceled three voyages and delayed the return to operation of five others.

4. Last week, Richard Fain formally stepped down as CEO of Royal Caribbean Group after 33 years at the helm. He will continue to serve as the company’s Chairman of the Board of Directors.

5. A 120-night world trip on Regent Seven Seas Cruises’ Seven Seas Mariner was drastically changed only one day before it was supposed to depart. Instead of visiting some of the world’s most exotic ports, the cruise will now be broken into four pieces, with the Caribbean and Latin America being the primary stops.

6. As the state prepares to restart cruise operations, the Hawaii Department of Transportation Harbors Division has announced the signing of port agreements with Carnival and Norwegian Cruise Line. On January 14, the Carnival Miracle will dock in Hawaii, while Norwegian’s Pride of America will begin sailings from Honolulu in March.
