       因为冠状病毒造成的旅游限制,邮轮公司皇家加勒比游轮公司(Royal Caribbean Cruises)目前已经取消了东南亚地区的18次航行,并修改了几条航线以控制疫情进一步传播。
       公司董事长兼首席执行官Richard D. Fain说:“重要的是,每个组织都要采取负责任的行动,我们已经采取了积极的措施,通过限制登船和改变行程,将风险降到最低。”
       皇家加勒比游轮公司旗下控制并运营四个品牌:皇家加勒比国际游轮(Royal Caribbean International)、精致游轮(Celebrity Cruises)、精钻会游轮(Azamara Cruises)和银海邮轮(Silversea Cruises)。 公司还持有西班牙品牌伯曼邮轮(Pullmantur Cruceros)49%的股份,自今年2月以来,还持有德国品牌途易邮轮(TUI Cruises)50%的股份。
Coronavirus Outbreak: Royal Caribbean Cancels 18 Sailings
Cruise company Royal Caribbean Cruises has so far canceled a total of eighteen sailings in Southeast Asia and modified several itineraries due to travel restrictions aimed at containing the coronavirus.
Taken together, these measures have an estimated impact on the company’s financial performance for 2020 of approximately USD 0.65 per share.
“While not currently planned, if the company was to cancel all of its remaining sailings in Asia through the end of April, it would impact 2020 financial performance by an additional USD 0.55 per share,” according to Royal Caribbean.
With China and other countries moving aggressively to contain the spread of the virus, the company is also communicating regularly with the CDC, the WHO and other health authorities around the world and has implemented measures to protect passengers and crew. These include denying boarding to those that have travelled from, to or through mainland China or Hong Kong in the past 15 days and performing mandatory specialized health screenings on at-risk passengers and crew.
“It is important that every organization acts responsibly, and we have already taken aggressive steps to minimize risk through boarding restrictions and itinerary changes,” Richard D. Fain, chairman and CEO, said.
Referring to a forecast for 2020, the company said that if the travel restrictions and concerns over the outbreak continue for an extended period of time, they could materially impact Royal Caribbean’s overall financial performance.
Royal Caribbean Cruises controls and operates four brands – Royal Caribbean International, Celebrity Cruises, Azamara and Silversea Cruises. The company is also a 49% shareholder in the Spanish brand Pullmantur Cruceros and, since this February, a 50% joint venture owner of the German brand TUI Cruises.
Together these brands operate a total of 61 ships with an additional seventeen on order as of December 31, 2019.
