Sunday’s 7-day long voyage comes with a host of health & safety restrictions for passengers. All guests were required to be fully vaccinated, with a limited number of exceptions for kids under 12, who cannot be vaccinated yet, and people with medical conditions. Less than 5% of the ~1500 passengers on the ship are unvaccinated for those reasons. All guests were also required to obtain a negative antigen/PCR test within 3 days of boarding.
Onboard the ship, all passengers aged 2+ are required to wear face masks in elevators as well as in certain indoor areas, including in the casino and retail shops unless they're eating/drinking.
Port of Baltimore's Executive Director said they had followed all safety protocols and implemented brand new systems to keep people safe.
On December 23, the RCI-Royal Caribbean ship Enchantment OTS is expected to be docking in Baltimore to pick up guests and depart later the same day.
