Has the cruise industry recover?

MIAMI - The cruise industry is recovering after the pandemic and will launch a couple of dozen new ships this year. The guidelines require that 98 percent of crew and 95 percent of passengers be fully vaccinated before a cruise ship can sail; otherwise, the cruise company must make test trips and wait for approval. Cruise lines restarted operations in Europe and Asia late last year and, after months of preparations to comply with strict health and safety guidelines set by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, cruise lines have begun to welcome passengers back to U. That message from the leaders of some of the world's largest cruise lines was made loud and clear during a panel discussion Tuesday at Seatrade, the annual cruise industry conference in Miami.

The agency withdrew its cruise travel risk assessment in March, after more than two years of warning travelers about the dangers of contracting COVID-19 on a cruise ship amid the pandemic. Despite the court's decision, the International Cruise Line Association, the trade group, said cruise companies will continue to operate in accordance with C. Cruise lines were forced to send most cruise ship workers to their homes, keeping a small crew on board to maintain their ships.
