Where Are the Cruise Ships Now? Updated: 2:00 PM EST - Monday 5/25/2020

With the temporary suspension of cruise operations, cruise lines are being forced to lay ships up in various locations world wide. With the majority of the ships located off the coast of Florida and between the islands of the Bahamas, many of the ships continue to move and sail. Those charged with maintaining the ships while not carrying passengers stated that ships in motion are easier to monitor and less likely to encounter mechanical or structual issues. All of the operations (including the plumbing) on board the ship is being exercised. In addition, ships need to periodically go to sea (deep water) to create water for consumption and use on board.

Are you curious where your favorite cruise ship is now? We will periodically update the section below with the latest locations for Royal Caribbean's Anthem of the Seas, Adventure of the Seas. Empress of the Seas and Oasis of the Seas; Norwegian Cruise Line's Norwegian Bliss, Norwegian Encore, Norwegian Gem and Norwegian Pearl; Carnival Cruises' Carnival Sunrise, Carnival Victory/Carnival Radiance; Cunard's Queen Mary 2; and Celebrity Cruises Celebrity Summit. Read below for the ship's latest location. The Cruise Ship locations will be updated twice per week.
