'Chance of getting COVID-19 on cruise ships is moderate,' CDC says in new assessment

3 mins read


The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention lowered its risk assessment of cruising. 

Cruise ships are now considered a Level 2 destination with “moderate” levels of COVID-19.

The CDC ranks international destinations with known COVID levels into 4 tiers, with Level 1 being “low” and Level 4 being “very high” for risk. 

Cruise ships had been lowered to Level 3 status in mid-February after being at Level 4 since December.

Even though the risk is now lower, the CDC encourages passengers to get fully vaccinated before cruise travel and take other precautionary measures like wearing face masks indoors, outside of their cabins, and in crowded outdoor spaces.
