CDC Raises COVID-19 Threat Level for Cruises, Adds River Cruising

  • Another pause for cruise sailings

Monday's ruling doesn't address the merits of the lawsuit but it may give plaintiffs momentum after legal experts predicted virus cases against cruise companies would be hard to win. Previously, the CDC classified cruise ships and cruise travel as a level 3 risk. It is especially important that people with an increased risk of severe illness avoid travel on cruise ships, including river cruises, the advisory explains. Following the event, two Congress members called on the CDC to reinstitute its "No Sail Order" and ban cruises from USA ports. Although cruise lines have been taking reservations for cruises in 2021, the prospect of taking a cruise - at least on a ship sailing in US waters - has now, unfortunately, been pushed further back into next year. "Passengers who decide to go on a cruise should get tested three to five days after your trip AND stay home for seven days after travel". If they don't opt for post-cruise testing, the agency suggests that they stay home and isolate for 14 days.

Princess Cruises had earlier extended its operational pause for cruises departing from Australia and New Zealand through 31 May 2021.

When cruise sailings do resume, a raft of new COVID-related safety measures will be introduced that could include additional medical screenings, physical distancing, and mask wearing. Among the passengers were 62 who had been on the ship's prior cruise to Mexico, including two with symptoms of coronavirus.

In a joint statement, the Cruise Lines International Association and the UK Chamber of Shipping welcomed the Government taskforce's report on kick-starting travel and commitment to restarting cruising but said there was still "no certainty" over when it could happen.

"Provided that [the agreement on repatriation] is case, this green lights cruises as long as they are Covid secure and using all the tests", said Mr Shapps.
