COVID-19 Protocols for Cruise Lines 

Things seem to change so fast when it comes to health guidelines for cruise lines. It’s important that we stay up to date with the Centres for Disease and Prevention (CDC) COVID-19 protocols. We’ll do our best to keep you updated as well. 

The guidelines for heath and safety for when it comes to cruise lines is so important during this ongoing pandemic. The CDC has had their mandatory protocols have recently expired, so this brings up, what us to what is happening going forward. 

The rules that have expired and were referred to as a “Conditional Sailing Order,” and included steps that involved testing passengers and crew. Part of that order was also quarantining for positive passengers. These will now be optional for passengers who plan on taking a cruise vacation. It’s important that we all stay up to date with COVID-19 protocols and that we stay safe and healthy when we take vacations.

Dr. Rochelle Walensky recently stated in an interview that she thinks “the Conditional Sail Order and the fact the industry has stepped up and is now interested in exceeding the compliance with the Sail Order without the order necessarily being in place is a real testimonial to how well that has worked.”

Cruise Lines Leaving the United States 

When it came to cruise lines that are leaving from the United States, they had to follow the CDC protocols. They we implemented in the summer of 2021 to help restart the cruise industry after a long pause. As mentioned above, those protocols have no expired. 

The next step now is that all ships that are leaving from the United States will be on a volunteer testing basis only. Cruise lines will still provide safe and also provide some of the highest levels of COVID-19 mitigation. Many cruise lines have since expressed their plans to be committed to the voluntary program. The CDC has set January 21st as the start date for this new volunteer program to begin. 

We understand that you might have more questions regarding what cruise lines will take. Each one might have a different answer, we recommend that you contact them upon booking your cruise line, this way you’re up to date with what you should expect. It’s also important to be excited because there are some incredible cruises you can choose from, and lots of spectacular cruise lines to choose from. The you can start to think about how you’ll get to your cruise ship terminal in Port Canaveral.
