CDC Drops all Covid Regulations for Cruises

Per the CDC website, the program:

“As part of CDC’s COVID-19 Program for Cruise Ships, cruise ship vaccination status classifications are defined as:

  • Not Highly Vaccinated: ships with less than 90% passengers and 95% crew who are fully vaccinated.
  • Highly Vaccinated: ships with at least 90% passengers and 95% crew who are fully vaccinated, but with less than 90% of passengers and 95% of crew who are up to date with their COVID-19 vaccines.
  • Vaccination Standard of Excellence: ships with at least 90% passengers and 95% crew who are up to date with their COVID-19 vaccines.

Cruise lines that choose to participate in CDC’s COVID-19 Program must advise CDC of the vaccination status classification for each participating ship. This information will be included on CDC’s Cruise Ship Color Status webpage. Ships adhering to the “Highly Vaccinated” or “Vaccination Standard of Excellence” classifications must maintain these thresholds for each voyage.”

The CDC will continue to provide guidance for cruise lines. It’ll ultimately be up to each cruise line to decide what its covid policies will be going forward.

Disney Cruise Line has not announced any changes as of posting this article.
