If you want to take a Norwegian Cruise anytime soon — you’ll have to get vaccinated first.
The company is seeking permission from the CDC to resume trips from U.S. ports on July 4, requiring all passengers and crew members to be vaccinated against COVID-19 at least two weeks before the trip.
“We believe that through a combination of 100% mandatory vaccinations for guests and crew and science-backed public health measures … we can create a safe, ‘bubble-like’ environment,” said Norwegian CEO Frank Del Rio.
Their plan calls for 60% capacity to start with then pushing for 100% by September.
The CDC has blocked cruise ships from U.S. ports with a no-sail order since March 2020, after outbreaks on several ships around the world.
