Cruise lines ask CDC to change Covid testing policy

With the United States government dropping mandatory covid testing for international travelers, the cruise industry remains the only travel business that still requires testing.

The Centers for Disease Control’s decision, which takes effect June 12, allows people to travel to the United States without taking any type of covid test, which is expected to lead to increased travel.

This is good news for cruise lines, as “in 2019, more than one million guests from Canada sailed from a US homeport, 570,000 guests from Brazil sailed from a US homeport and 280,000 from Mexico, the Caribbean and Central America,” Cruisehive reported.
