“Any piece of legislation can be challenging to understand, and we want our travel advisors to receive all the financial assistance available to them,” Fain continued. “While our ships are idle, we have resources that can be redirected to helping our travel partners so that they will be fully ready and able to charge ahead when we return to service.”
To access the RCL Cares program, advisors and agents must visit CruisingPower.com, where they can access highlights of the CARES Act, FAQs, Small Business Association resources and tips.
As the coronavirus outbreak continues to impact cruise lines, several of the top companies in the industry have extended the suspension of all voyages, including Royal Caribbean, Norwegian, Carnival, Disney, Seabourn and more.
