Every holiday firm has taken a hit over lockdown.

People hoping to go backpacking, on a short city break, big holidays and cruises have been hit.

Cruise companies have especially been hit as they remain suspended until at least the end of this year.

Some aren’t going to be sailing until next year.

Some of the biggest cruise lines have shared the information and when they are looking to restart sailings, reports Mirror Online.

The cruise lines are listed in alphabetical order to make life a little easier.

It’s also worth noting that the information is correct at the time of writing, but may be subject to change.

Cunard

Cunard has suspended all operations until 2021, across its three ships Queen Elizabeth, Queen Mary 2 and Queen Victoria.

The company says that it is contacting affected guests and travel agents. All guests who have their sailing cancelled will automatically receive 125% Future Cruise Credit, or can fill out the online form for a 100% refund.

Changes are also being made to its 2021 itineraries, with a change to Queen Elizabeth’s destinations. Due to sail to destinations including Australia and Japan, all of her cruises between March and December 2021 have been cancelled, with a new programme being introduced focused on the British Isles as well as European destinations.
