How will cruises sail safely when they restart?
All major cruise lines (through CLIA), have agreed to strict safety protocols to ensure passenger and crew safety on cruise ships, as well as in the ports of call they visit.
Over several months, the Healthy Sail Panel, a panel of experts in various fields, has been working on a plan to cruise safely and use the cruise ship’s unique environment as an advantage.
More information about the protocols and how this will affect your cruise vacation can be found in this article.
