The original order was put in place on March 13 and has since been extended twice. The order bans cruising in U.S. waters until at least Oct. 1. The no sail order was put in place because the CDC director believed that cruise ship travel would continue to introduce, transmit and spread COVID-19. Royal Caribbean had announced earlier this month that it was aiming to resume cruises in mid-September. Carnival Cruise Line and Norwegian Cruise Line have already canceled cruises through September.
