Cruise lines adapt for a safe return to sea
Cruise lines have begun to roll out enhanced safety measures to ensure a safe return to sea for all guests and crew. The Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) made a statement on Global Health Policy announcing mandatory 100% testing with a negative test result required by all staff and guests prior to boarding.
This announcement came with the introduction of further mandatory core safety elements, while also taking into consideration the Healthy Sailing Panel’s 74 detailed recommendations, along with science and medical expert contributions.
Mandatory vaccinations against COVID-19 on initial sailings
At present, some cruise lines have announced that all guests and crew must be fully vaccinated, at least 2 weeks prior to departure. Visit your cruise line’s website for more details on guest vaccination requirements.
