Cruising returns to US

This item appears on page 11 of the December 2020 issue.

The Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) moved to allow some cruise ships to dock in US ports as of Oct. 31, upon the expiration of the last no-sail order. Sailings will begin with a series of “test” cruises, to ensure that ships will be able to meet requirements for testing and safety. If the results prove successful, then a wider range of cruises from and to the US will be allowed.

Cruises have been banned from US ports due to the COVID-19 pandemic since March 14.
