CDC advises people should avoid cruises regardless of vaccination status

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is now advising that people should avoid cruises regardless of vaccination status according to CNBC.

The CDC warned that Covid transmits easily between people in close quarters on ships, and the chance of catching the virus on a cruise is very high even for people who are vaccinated and have received a booster dose.

“It is especially important that travelers who are at an increased risk of severe illness from COVID-19 avoid travel on cruise ships, including river cruises, worldwide, regardless of vaccination status,” the CDC said.

Currently, Disney Cruise Line continues to require all vaccine-eligible Guests (based on US eligibility requirements) to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19, as defined by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), at the time of sailing. This will be a requirement for all Guests (US and international) ages 5 and older for sailings beginning on and after January 13, 2022.

Recently we shared the news that the CDC is watching COVID-19 cases on 86 cruise ships, including the four Disney Cruise ships.

Today guests onboard the Disney Fantasy were unable to disembark at St. Thomas due to the rising number of COVID-19 cases.
