Here are current dates of suspensions in place by major cruise lines, and the earliest dates those cruise lines are scheduled to resume departures from ports in the United States.

Several cruise lines operating in Europe and Asia resumed services last fall but suspended them when infection counts began to surge again. They are beginning to restart operations as more people get vaccinated.

As during the past year, upcoming schedules are subject to cancellation. Travelers agents warn consumers not to book unless they understand and accept cruise lines’ policies for refunds and future cruise credits.

Current schedules, prices and cancellation updates can be found at the cruise lines’ websites.
