More Cruise Ships Returning to Service, With Health Protocols in Place

It seems the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) current “no sail” order may actually be allowed to expire this week. In recent weeks, several cruise lines have made it clear they hope to begin sailing in early November. Already, sailings have resumed overseas with health protocols similar to those being suggested by CLIA and the Health Sail Panel in place.

One thing is certain, cruisers will have a much clearer this week, when the current no sail order is set to expire.
