As you know, I recently toured the brand new Carnival Mardi Gras. Unfortunately, Carnival cruise line is adding some hurdles to cruising which includes changes to COVID protocols.
CruiseHive.com is reporting, “With the very fluid situation in making sure cruise passengers remain safe, Carnival Cruise Line updates its protocols, including new mask guidelines for all guests and testing requirements pre-cruise for vaccinated guests.
Carnival Cruise Line Protocol Changes
Cruise lines are adapting to the developing COVID health concern to make sure guests can remain safe during a cruise vacation. This also includes Carnival Cruise Line, which has already restarted operations with five vessels, including the new Mardi Gras.
The cruise line has made changes to its protocols across all cruise ships. From August 7, all guests will be required to wear a face mask in specific indoor areas, especially in busy areas. When outdoors, guests can continue to not wear a mask just as before. The new mask-wearing policy will continue through October 31, 2021.
Carnival Cruise Line is also implementing a new pre-testing requirement effective from August 14, 2021, through October 31. With this new requirement, guests who are fully vaccinated will also have to show proof of a negative PCR or antigen test result taken within three days before embarkation. The cruise line will not be offering a test in the terminal, something which some other cruise lines are doing.”
