After months of delays in 2020 after Covid-19

and CDC recommendations, it is unclear exactly when cruise vacations will be back to normal at this time. The CDC has been vague on “requirements”  and “proof protocols work” per industry insiders.

Some enhanced protocols will include required negative test results before boarding, limited room service and entry to cabins (many resorts on islands and Mexico have adopted this), extensive cleaning of luggage before sailing, temperature checks, wearing of masks pretty much the entire cruise is expected as well as reduced capacity in the beginning.

If you are itching to go someplace warm and tropical there are other vacations that are available.
