After on Wednesday, March 30, the USA's agency CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) removed its "COVID Cruise Ship Travel Health Notice", CLIA announced that the decision recognized the effective public health measures in place on cruise ships and had begun to level the playing field, between cruise and similarly situated venues on land, for the first time since March 2020.

From the onset of the pandemic, CLIA’s cruise line members have prioritized the health and safety of their guests, crew, and the communities they visit and are sailing today with health measures in place that are unmatched by virtually any other commercial setting.

For 2+ years now, health officials were warning people not to go on a cruise but, considering where the United States is in the crisis and since COVID cases on cruise vessels have been dropping over the past weeks, the CDC decided to give it the green light.

According to the agency, it's better to be vaccinated prior to going on a cruise.

Tourists should also research how each company handles public health measures.
