CDC Announces Voluntary COVID Rules for Cruises
« on: February 11, 2022, 10:02:38 PM »
"In updated guidance for travelers, the CDC still says it’s best to “avoid” cruise travel and encourages people to be fully vaccinated and boosted against COVID-19 before boarding a cruise ship.

Under the voluntary program, there are three vaccination status levels:

    “Not highly vaccinated” ships, with less than 95% of passengers and crew fully vaccinated
    "Highly vaccinated” ships, with at least 95% of passengers and crew fully vaccinated but less than 95% with up-to-date vaccines, including boosters
    “Vaccination standard of excellence” ships, with 95% of passengers and crew fully vaccinated and boosted

The new program still requires passengers to have a COVID-19 test before embarking. Cruise lines that take part must follow all the new recommendations and notify the CDC of the vaccination status classification for each ship."

Somehow the cruise lines are slow to react. I think there afraid of repercussions.
