Cruise Lines Are Canceling Sailings Amid Hiring Difficulties

Read Time:39 Seconds

May 28. The cruise industry could be in rocky waters again: Difficulties with hiring crew members has hindered several cruise lines’ operations, leaving some would-be cruise-goers with fewer onboard dining options or canceled trips.

Like on-land hospitality companies, cruise lines haven’t been immune to worker shortages” amid the Great Resignation. And now, a lack of available cruise workers has begun affecting itineraries and onboard amenities.

This staffing problem is one of the reasons Holland America has decided to “pace its restart over the year,” a spokesperson told Insider in a statement. While Royal Caribbean’s spokesperson acknowledged similar difficulties in hiring up, the cruise line doesn’t expect it’ll be canceling any future itineraries.

Not all cruise companies have been as fortunate as Holland America or Royal Caribbean.
