American Cruise Lines, which was forced last week to cancel its planned restart in the Pacific Northwest due to a spike in Covid-19 cases in Oregon, said its first sailing will now be in July on the Mississippi River.

The company said the American Harmony will cruise from Memphis to New Orleans on July 12 instead of June 28 as previously announced.

A resumption of sailings on the Columbia and Snake rivers will depend on when the governor of Oregon eases pandemic-related restrictions, ACL said.

Because the ACL river ships will carry less than 250 people, they don’t fall under last week’s announcement by CLIA that its members had agreed to suspend U.S. sailings until September.
