Cruises Already Suspended by NorwegianIn its last operational update on July 29, 2020, Norwegian Cruise Line announced the cancellation of all sailings up to and including October 31, 2020.For cruisers who have had their active reservation cancelled by Norwegian, the company will automatically provide a Future Cruise Credit (FCC) equivalent to 125 percent of the total fare paid.Passengers wanting a full monetary refund of 100 percent of all fares paid had to request this directly from Norwegian. Otherwise, the default refund amount is 125 percent as an FCC.The FCC given by Norwegian must be used one year from the date of issue and can be applied to any Norwegian Cruise Line voyage embarking through 2022. It cannot, however, be transferred to any other Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings brand, like Oceania or Regent Seven Seas.
