The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has updated its guidelines for transportation within the United States. This update is long overdue and could be a positive sign for cruise operations outside the US.

Fully vaccinated individuals are permitted to travel in the United States. This could be the sign the cruise industry has been waiting for, and we already know that the CDC will be issuing new guidelines for cruises as well.

Green light for land transport

It is now clear that the return of travel to the United States is due solely to vaccines. The second one. In April, the CDC updated its guidelines for domestic travel to the United States. For some time now, the CDC has only been issuing guidelines for major travel. This has now changed and anyone who is fully vaccinated can travel in the country.

Updating the CDC website

According to the CDC, fully vaccinated travelers are less likely to contract and spread COVID-19. This means that the test is no longer required for travel unless the destination requires it. Vaccinated travelers should no longer provide self-care.

However, vaccinated persons should exercise caution, wear a mask, stay one meter away from the public and wash their hands regularly.

There is no doubt that the national introduction of the vaccine has been a great success. This should allow for more flexible travel rules in the future.

A step in the right direction for cruises

How can this be a game changer for the cruise industry? This is certainly a step in the right direction, especially for those cruise lines that only allow fully vaccinated guests.

This could be an indication that cruises are picking up. However, the industry is still waiting for further guidance from the CDC. Until this guide is released, it’s all guesswork.

With the introduction of the vaccine, it will only be a matter of time, but there are some obstacles. Domestic cruises are difficult because cruise ships must call at an international port, which is made even more difficult because Canada is very closed to cruise ships.

For international travel, testing and quarantine requirements remain the same. The Caribbean is ready and waiting for the green light from the cruise lines. The CDC is currently in compliance with the conditional departure order, which is in effect until January 1, November 2021, unless lifted by the Director.

There are growing calls to repeal the order, and the CDC has already indicated that new guidelines are being prepared. It is unclear what this is. They could form the second phase of the framework, which was announced at the end of October 2020.

This is all evolving quickly, and Cruise Hive will keep readers posted with further updates on when cruises will resume from the US.
