Coronavirus Update: January 25, 2021

COVID-19 vaccinations are underway in the U.S., Canada and other countries and will increase dramatically in the coming months. The chief science advisor of Operation Warp Speed, the U.S. government's expedited search for development and delivery of a vaccine, has said that every American who wants a vaccine will be able to get one by June. Health officials in Canada have said that all Canadians who want a vaccine will receive one by September.

The vaccine rollout marks the turning point in the battle against COVID-19 and the global travel industry is finally on a sure path to reopening. That reopening will take months to play out and will likely occur on a country-by-country basis.

As of today, Mexico and Costa Rica are the only popular tourist destinations that welcome Americans without restrictions, but many Caribbean destinations and Hawaii now welcome Americans with proof of a negative COVID-19 test. Click here for a full list of these destinations and their requirements. We will let you know when other countries' travel bans are removed and when cruise ships resume sailing.

In the meantime, we are here to help with your vacation planning. Please note that anyone holding a future travel credit from a cancelled sailing is able to apply that credit to any cruise on the same line booked through Vacations To Go, regardless of whether the original cruise was booked through Vacations To Go.

Below we’ve listed dates of suspended service by cruise line and provided links to each line's policy covering future cruise credits (FCCs) and refunds on cancelled sailings. We have also provided links to relaxed cancellation terms for bookings on future sailings.

In general, cruise lines are offering generous incentives to customers who accept future cruise credits (FCCs) in lieu of a refund on a sailing that has been cancelled by the cruise line. To view our comprehensive list of FCC rules, click here.

Due to a backlog of refund requests, it may take cruise lines up to 90 days after the cancellation date to return funds to customers.

No further action is needed if the booking is cancelled and it is not necessary to contact Vacations To Go.
