Norwegian will resume US cruise holidays in August

Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd will be returning to sailing in the US from August 7th, the company said on Monday May 24th.

Any recommencement of cruise packages starting in the US or calling at ports there are contingent on obtaining a conditional sailing certificate from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the company said. It anticipates approval soon.

Norwegian Cruise had previously planned to restart US sailings in July, but later said that the time needed to prepare its ships after receiving clearance from the CDC meant that this was too tight a timetable.
