It's one thing for the CDC to ban ships sailing longer itineraries due to public health concerns.  It's another matter altogether for the CDC to become involved with how cruise lines market cruises.

Oddly, I have (I think!) just been able to check us into our 8-night Anthem sailing on 6th Feb 2021. 😷 🚢 I initially received the Been A Glitch message but clicked again and was routed through to

Someone needs to challenge this in court.  It's a government overreach and potentially violates freedom of speech.  "If you talk about cruises longer than 7 days we are going to shut you down".

 Over the next few weeks, we will be working closely with the CDC to understand how to best move forward with these sailings and evaluate all the options. We will let you know immediately should anything change. Thanks for your patience. 

Where did you see this?

I've got an 8 night in March and a 9 night in September booked was going to change the 8 night to a 12 night but was hoping it's easier to modify and 8 night to 7 than a 12 night to 7.   I've been pretty positive for cruises to start back up again so I can take the 3 that i have booked for next year, but with the latest from the CDC I'm not as optimistic as I have been.  Starting to look at a land based all-inclusive resort.

I guess only 2021 sailings are currently impacted?

My 2022 sailing of 8 nights is fine... I guess they figure this will all be sorted out by then...


I'm on that cruise.

What about my cruise on Anthem from Oct 30th to Nov 7th? If its still in my cruise list Im good?

THE 8 nite cruise is way out. THE cruise shouldn't be impacted.  THE cruise scheduled for Oct 30th should be fine.

Soooo .... Am I suppose to assume the 14 night Panama Canal cruise on October 1st 2021 isn't happening???

I was planning on using the FCC from our Trans Atlantic cruise on Anthem scheduled for April 2021 on the Panama cruise.  I don't think the Trans Atlantic will happen so the Panama Canal cruise was my back-up. 

Any recommendations??  I wonder if lift and shift to 2022 will be an option???  Are longer cruises done for the foreseeable future??

IF a vaccine comes along and IF once through the winter the COVID-19 numbers are within acceptable levels THEN longer cruises might be allowed to sail.

The CDC's CSO prohibits the cruise lines from offering long cruises right now so cruise lines had no choice but to stop allowing them to be booked.  That's different than canceling them.  As we progress through the winter and once ships eventually restart in some capacity we'll know more then if these long cruises will be allowed to occur.

In response to something I saw about an Oddessy  sailing (9 nights so. car.) in Nov2021 being cancelled,   on another site , I decided t check. Had no problem doing a mock booking right to where it wanted my deposit... So I really don't know whats going on. I have 3 x 7 and a 5 night in 2021 and all are still showing a go...

Yes, I’ve noticed that the CP is still fully functional for my >7 night cruises even though those cruises are now closed to new bookings.  Royal will gladly still take your money for CP purchases.

I had one of my 7 night bookings show closed a few days ago and was wide open to bookings last night. Updated: Checked and they are still taking bookings but wow the price is going way way up.  Matt answered above the answer to  that 9 nighter...
