Norwegian Cruise Lines Announces No Mask Requirement in March for Vaccinated Individuals
By Fox Business // February 9, 2022
Guests must be fully vaccinated at least two weeks prior to departure
(FOX BUSINESS) – Norwegian Cruise Line said it will drop masking requirements on its voyages starting on March 1, leaving the decision to each guest’s discretion.
“Our cruises will operate with 100% vaccination of crew and guests age five and over, therefore face coverings are not required while onboard,” a notice on the company’s website reads.
“However, we recognize the added protections provided when wearing a mask covering and recommend that all guests do so onboard when indoors, except when actively eating or drinking, or seated at a table in a dining setting, or when in their stateroom. Mask coverings are also recommended outdoors when physical distancing of at least six feet cannot be maintained.”
Guests must be fully vaccinated at least two weeks prior to departure and must show proof of vaccination at the terminal in order to board.
A Norwegian spokesperson told FOX Business that unvaccinated guests who are ages 4 and under will be permitted to board but be limited to under 5% of total guest occupancy on each cruise per guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
