2021 Canadian Cruise Season Suspended

February 5, 2021, St. John’s, N.L – On February 4, 2021, Transport Canada extended its interim order suspending cruise vessel activity in Canada in 2021. Cruise Newfoundland and Labrador, together with industry partners, communities, and all levels of government are continuing to work together to build a strong foundation to restore confidence in cruising and ensure the safe resumption of cruise business in our province.

As we continue working to overcome current and future challenges that face the cruise industry, we remain optimistic that, when it is safe to do so, cruise will resume. When the time is right, we look forward to welcoming cruise lines, their guests, and crew back to the ports of Newfoundland and Labrador.
