Cruise Lines Issue Japan Earthquake & Tsunami Statements

These are the only cruise line statements we have at present. It is our understanding that no cruise ships were impacted by the earthquake or tsunami. Please join us in our thoughts and prayers for the people of Japan.

Princess Cruises
Our thoughts and prayers are with the people of Japan especially those directly affected by today's devastating earthquake. We currently have no ships in Japan, nor are any of our ships considered at risk from any tsunami activity. All Princess passengers, crew and ships are safe. We will be assessing the tourism infrastructure in Japanese ports for our scheduled calls later this month.

Cunard Line: Queen Mary 2 Update
Queen Mary 2 is currently on passage between Osaka and Nagasaki and is circa 450 miles south west of the epi centre of this morning's earthquake. Weather in the area is calm and it is unlikely that the sea area and route the ship is on will be affected by any after effects of the earthquake. The Commodore has made a broadcast to our Guests and staff advising them of the situation and he has walked the decks and all is calm on board.

Norwegian Cruise Line
The safety and security of our guests and crew is of the utmost importance. We are closely monitoring the current tsunami advisory for Hawaii and the West Coast. All guests aboard Pride of America and Norwegian Star are safe and doing well.
