The Port of Seattle announced that it has cancelled the Seattle 2020 cruise season's port calls scheduled for April 1 and April 5.
The Grand Princess was the planned April 1 call and it was expected to call the Celebrity Equinox on April 5.
“This region is in a public health emergency and we will cancel the first two sailings of our cruise season. The health, safety, and wellbeing of our residents is our top priority,” stated Port of Seattle Commission President Peter Steinbrueck.
The port will continue to collaborate with first responders, cruise lines, and local officials, and consider existing guidelines on public safety, as well as improved measures being conducted by the cruise lines, to identify potential sailings, he said in a statement.
