JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) — Two additional cruise lines have canceled sailings to Alaska this summer, citing travel and other restrictions linked to coronavirus concerns.

Princess Cruises and Holland America Line had previously announced sharply reduced plans for voyages to and tours in Alaska.

Earlier this week, Carnival Cruise Line announced it was canceling trips to Alaska this year.

Carnival Cruise Line, Princess Cruises and Holland America Line fall under the Carnival Corp. umbrella.

An official with the trade organization Cruise Lines International Association Alaska says the state faces a loss of 479 voyages with a passenger capacity of more than 955,000 because of cancellations.
