Disney Cruise Line Workers rally at Port Canaveral

Disney Cruise

Yesterday, workers in the cruise industry gathered for a rally in Port Canaveral. Even Disney Cruise employees were among the group since they are hoping to resume sailing. These cruise employees are eager to return to work and don’t want the “no-sail order” to be extended beyond October 31, 2020.

The cruise industry workers want the order to be lifted so they can get back to work. The cruise industry in the United States has been shuttered since mid-March due to the coronavirus pandemic.

To clarify, the cruise workers are not disregarding coronavirus. What they’re saying is that they have confidence in handling cruises safely under new health regulations. Several rally photos made their way to Twitter.

Major cruise lines say they will test all passengers and crew for COVID-19 prior to boarding as part of their plan for resuming sailing in the United States.

The Cruise Lines International Association says its members will also require masks onboard and onshore excursions whenever physical distancing can’t be maintained. It also calls for enhanced cleaning and sanitation procedures.

The CDC has given no indication as to whether the “no-sail order” will be allowed to expire. We’ll provide updates once more information becomes available regarding the cruise line industry.

One thought on “Disney Cruise Line Workers rally at Port Canaveral

  1. To be clear, I feel for the employees needing to work. However, the only way they can promise safe sailing is by requiring all who sail have been vaccinated and provide documentation of such. Otherwise, they cannot promise safe sailing. It’s not going to be possible until there is a vaccine, and those that refuse to be vaccinated should not be permitted boarding.
