As the mainstream cruise industry gets back to business, there’s a clear message being delivered. If you want to return to what one might call “normal good times,” get a vaccine.
U.S. cruising officially resumed, following a 15-month pandemic shutdown, when Celebrity Edge embarked from Fort Lauderdale for Mexico and the Bahamas on June 26. Royal Caribbean and Carnival Cruise Line returned to the scene, too, with one and two ships, respectively, setting sail just in time for guests to celebrate the Fourth of July holiday onboard. All sailed cautiously at reduced capacity.
