If you’re getting ideas together for summer plans, going on a cruise may be back on the table for many families this year.
According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, getting on a cruise ship is less risky now than it was earlier this year.
A cruise vacation is now classified as a “Level 2″ destination with “moderate” levels of COVID-19.
Back in mid-February, the risk level was a three or “high.”
The CDC still advises cruise passengers to be fully vaccinated and take precautionary measures while on a large ship, like wearing a mask while indoors and in crowded areas. “Level 2″ recommendations also ask travelers who are at increased risk for severe illness from COVID-19 to avoid nonessential travel.
