CDC advises 'all people' to avoid cruise ships, citing COVID risk

Monday's ruling doesn't address the merits of the lawsuit but it may give plaintiffs momentum after legal experts predicted virus cases against cruise companies would be hard to win. The CDC has raised their warning on boat voyages to level four, saying there could be very high levels and transmission rates of COVID-19.

Currently, Carnival Cruise Line has suspended operations from all US ports until February 2021.

Those who do travel on cruise ships should get tested 3-5 days after disembarking and quarantine for seven days regardless of the test result.

Wishing we were on the high seas with Disney Cruise Line this holiday season would be an understatement, the holiday decor Mickey and Minnie in their holiday best we can all dream!

U.S. District Judge Gary Klausner in Los Angeles concluded that 17 of 18 passengers made legally sufficient allegations to proceed - even though they were never tested for the virus, as was commonplace in the early days of the pandemic.

Almost a month prior, the CDC lifted its eight-month no-sail order for cruises across the country, replacing the order with a less restrictive "Conditional Sailing Order".

The order introduced a phased approach for resuming passenger cruises.

"Cruise passengers are at increased risk of person-to-person spread of infectious diseases, including COVID-19, and outbreaks of COVID-19 have been reported on cruise ships". With this new tier cruise ship travel is now in that category.

Cruise lines are responding appropriately.

Travel Agent received this brief statement from Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) about the CDC's latest action: "We share a common goal with the CDC, which is to protect the public health of our passengers, crew and destinations".
