BREVARD COUNTY • PORT CANAVERAL, FLORIDA – The CDC announced on Wednesday that the restrictions placed on the cruise lines in 2020 due to the pandemic will remain in effect until November 1.
The announcement came just a few hours after a cruise industry trade group called for the CDC to lift the restrictions, which would have allowed for the planning to resume operations at U.S. ports beginning in July, including Port Canaveral.
The CDC first issued the no-sail order on March 14, 2020.
To make matters worse, trading fell for shares of cruise operators Carnival Corp, Royal Caribbean Cruises and Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings.
Last week, Royal Caribbean announced it will resume sailing from the Bahamas in June.
However, adults will be required to show they have been vaccinated against COVID-19.
Passengers under the age of 18 will be allowed to board if they have a negative coronavirus test result.
