The USA’s Centre for Disease Control (CDC) has advised that people who are not fully vaccinated against the novel coronavirus should avoid travel on cruise ships.

The advice applied to river cruises, worldwide. This warning, according to the CDC, is necessary because the risk of contracting COVID-19 on cruise ships is high.

The virus appears to spread more readily between people who are in close contact and in close quarters as is the situation aboard ships. This is especially important for persons with an ‘increased risk of severe illness’.They should avoid travel on cruise ships, including ocean and river cruises. In this regard, the CDC has issued a Level 3 Travel Health Notice for cruise ship travellers who are not fully vaccinated.

The virus appears to spread more readily between people who are in close contact and in close quarters as is the situation aboard ships. This is especially important for persons with an ‘increased risk of severe illness’. They should avoid travel on cruise ships, including ocean and river cruises. In this regard, the CDC has issued a Level 3 Travel Health Notice for cruise ship travellers who are not fully vaccinated. The guidelines:

• The virus that causes COVID-19 spreads easily between people in close quarters aboard ships, and the chance of getting COVID-19 on cruise ships is high. Outbreaks of COVID-19 have been reported on cruise ships.

• CDC recommends that people who are not fully vaccinated avoid travel on cruise ships, including river cruises, worldwide.

• People with an increased risk of severe illness should also avoid travel on cruise ships, including river cruises, regardless of vaccination status.

• People who decide to go on a cruise should get tested 1–3 days before their trip and 3–5 days after their trip, regardless of vaccination status.

• Along with testing, passengers who are not fully vaccinated should self-quarantine for 7 days after cruise travel, even if they test negative. If they do not get tested, they should self-quarantine for 10 days after cruise travel. 

• People on cruise ships should wear a mask to keep their nose and mouth covered when in shared spaces. While CDC’s Mask Order is not being enforced on cruise ships, individual cruise lines may require travellers (passengers and crew) to wear masks indoors on board the ship. —
