The French credit agency is applying this to the Symphony of the Seas, Celebrity Edge, and Celebrity Apex and runs until April 2021.
Germany’s export credit agency has arranged for holidays for Quantum of the Seas, and Celebrity’s Eclipse, Equinox, Solstice and Silhouette. This runs until April 2021 too.
