Victoria cancels Yangtze cruises over coronavirus concerns — Wetravel2u’s Weblog

Victoria Cruise Lines says it has cancelled six cruises on China’s Yangtze River due to concerns about the coronavirus.

“While operations have not been directly impacted by the situation in Wuhan — more than 500 miles away from the American-managed company’s Chongqing office — many passengers travel through transportation hubs which have been affected by proactive measures taken by the Chinese government, creating logistical difficulties,” the company said in a statement.

 

Additionally, the company said China’s Ministry of Culture and Tourism has asked the tour sector to temporarily suspend operations. In response, Victoria said, it has cancelled all sailings through Feb. 16, six offseason winter departures.

“Victoria Cruise Lines will monitor the situation in the interim and continue to prioritize the safety and enjoyment of its valued guests,” the company said.
