COVID-19 Protocols for 2022

When it comes to COVID-19 protocols for cruise ships, things are changing once again when it comes to health guidelines. It’s important that we stay up to date with the Centres for Disease and Prevention (CDC) COVID-19 protocols. We’ll do our best to keep you updated as well.

It was reported that the latest guidelines for heath and safety have been eased when it comes to cruise lines. It is so important during this ongoing pandemic to stay informed about things such as health guidelines. The CDC has had their mandatory protocols have recently expired and now we can discuss what will happen going forward.

Since the rules have expired, which were referred to as a “Conditional Sailing Order,” included steps that involved testing passengers and crew. We now have been told that quarantining will be optional.

Previously, part of that order was also quarantining for positive passengers. This will now be optional for passengers who plan on taking a cruise vacation. It’s important that we all stay up to date with COVID-19 protocols and that we stay safe and healthy when we take vacations.

Dr. Rochelle Walensky recently stated in an interview that she thinks “the Conditional Sail Order and the fact the industry has stepped up and is now interested in exceeding the compliance with the Sail Order without the order necessarily being in place is a real testimonial to how well that has worked.”

Cruise Lines Departing from the United States

It was also reported that when cruise lines are leaving from the United States, they had to follow the CDC protocols. Those we're implemented in the summer of 2021 and were meant to help restart the cruise industry after being stalled. 

The next step now, is that all ships that are leaving from the United States will be on a volunteer testing basis only. This way Cruise lines will still provide safe and also provide some of the highest levels of COVID-19 mitigation. Many cruise lines have since expressed that they plan to be committed to the voluntary program. The CDC stated that January 21st was the start date for this new volunteer program.

We understand that you might have more questions regarding what cruise lines will take. Each one might have a different answer, we recommend that you contact them upon booking your cruise line, this way you’re up to date with what you should expect.

It’s also important to be excited because there are some incredible cruises you can choose from, and lots of spectacular cruise lines to choose from. The you can start to think about how you’ll get to your cruise ship terminal in Port Canaveral.
