Norwegian Cruise extends suspension of cruises through November

(MarketWatch) – Shares of Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd. NCLH, -0.40% fell 1.1% in premarket trading Monday, after the cruise operator extended the suspension of cruises to include those embarking Nov. 1 through Nov. 30.

The suspension includes Norwegian’s three cruise brands, Norwegian Cruise Line, Oceania Cruises and Regent Seven Seas Cruises.

“The company will continue to work in tandem with global government and public health authorities and its Healthy Sail Panel expert advisors to take all necessary measures to protect its guests, crew and the communities visited,” Norwegian said in a statement.

The extension comes after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention extended last week its no-sail order by a month to Oct. 31.

Norwegian’s stock has tumbled 70.4% year to date through Friday, while the S&P 500 SPX, -0.95% has edged up 3.6%.
