Earlier this year the Canadian government announced a one-year ban for cruise ships and Arctic pleasure craft. The ban was set to end February 28, 2022. Now, the Canadian Minister of Transport, the Honourable Omar Alghabra, announced that the ban will end November 1, 2021.

The ban will no longer be in effect so long as operators are able to fully comply with public health requirements. Canada is looking forward to having a cruise season in 2022. Transport Canada will continue to work with the United States government to ensure health and safety.

“As Canadians have done their part to reduce the spread of COVID-19, our government continues to work hard to safely restart our economy and build back better. We will welcome cruise ships—an important part of our tourism sector—back in Canadian waters for the 2022 season,” said Alghabra.

Disney Cruise Line had to cancel its Alaska sailings due to the Canada ban. Alaskan senators then introduced a bill that would allow cruise lines to bypass stopping at an international port. Now, that might not matter. Disney Cruise Line has yet to resume sailing and the 2021 Alaskan cruises are still cancelled. With Canada reopening its waterways, the Alaska cruise season should be able to return in 2022.
