When will cruises start again?

While cruise lines have suspended service for a while, one of the most common questions is still about when they'll start sailing again.  

To help you keep track of the ever-changing list of dates that we hope hold true, we've created a tracker.  We'll try and keep it up to date, but if you get news before we do, you can help us and submit an update here.

Do keep in mind that that cruise lines may have to make multiple changes, and really, you should be thinking of how far out a cruise line has canceled so far - rather than dates that a line plans to restart.

Below you can find the most up-to date information we have on when cruise lines will start sailing again after suspending service due to the coronavirus pandemic.  If you have additional information to share, help us keep this tracker up to date by submitting information here.
