"Nearing the completion of its restart plans, Princess Cruises currently has most of its fleet sailing."
"Princess Cruises, a major industry player, is encouraging vaccinated and unvaccinated passengers alike to come aboard. The cruise line updated its guidance Monday with the CDC's announcement, saying it can now accommodate more unvaccinated guests on sailings "without burdensome exemptions or vaccine status justification."

"It went on to say, “We can now accommodate up to 10% of unvaccinated guests on most sailings without burdensome exemptions or vaccine status justification, available on a first-come, first-served basis.”

"There is an exception to the rule for voyages that call to Canada.

The line says, “Please note that cruises that begin, end or visit Canada will require sailing guests ages 12 and above who are not Canadian citizens be fully vaccinated, unless they are granted a medical exemption.”

What precautions were they taking on the ship prior to the outbreak?
Whether masks are useless or offer some value I'll still prefer to take my chances without having to wear on everyplace on the ship.
It's what we've been doing at home here in Florida and it's worked out fine for us even when the virus was at it peak. Now that the effects have seemed to subside it's all the more reason not to wear one.
Masks are useless. Every RCT carried out concerning masks for the past 100 years come to the conclusion they are, EVEN UNDER OPTIMUM conditions, and with diligent use and care of a FITTED N95 mask, of little to NO value at all.  All you need to know is that if there's an active virus around it doesn't KNOW if you are eating or drinking and become dormant when you are.   And if you are wearing anything other than an N95, FITTED pristine mask, like cloth or hospital type masks and there is an active virus in the area the MASK will NOT protect you from inhaling.  Heck you can even get the virus through your EYES!!!  That being said I realize that Princess, has little choice but to implement protocols they THINK will mitigate spread in the minds of it's passengers.  In so much as the majority are convinced that mask offer 'some' protection, doing something pro-active when cases arise is in the best interest of all concerned.  Also just so everyone knows I wear a mask whenever and wherever it is required and have no problem with those that choose to wear a mask where none is required.
