  • Norwegian Cruise Line cancels sailings through June 1, 2020 
  • Nassau, Bahamas says cruise ships could start doing test voyages there as early as the spring
  • Royal Caribbean is requiring crew members to be vaccinated 
  • Royal is also remaining bullish on the 2021 Alaska season 
  • MSC Cruises shows us that the machines are in control 

Listener Question: I have a cruise booked for December 2021, and haven’t really been shopping around outside of that. My question is, should we expect prices to rise due to ships not filling all the rooms?  There is such a pent-up desire to cruise, I’m afraid the competition will be steep for a while. -Kayla

What will be some of the pros and cons of being the first cruise ship back to sea. Staff writer Richard Simms weighs in on what guests will have to look out for and what we know so far about the return-to-cruise process. 

Sherry Laskin has cruise news

  • Two US-based river cruise lines will now require the COVID vaccine for crew and guests. 
  • Carnival Cruise Line breaks ground on a new cruise terminal at PortMiami. 
  • NCL is sending crew members back home until they get more guidance on resuming sailings. 
  • MSC takes delivery of their latest cruise ship. 
  • One cruise line is bringing sports betting to sea 
  • If you miss Freeport, Bahamas, you can now get there with a negative test. 

Listener Question: Will the CDC still have jurisdiction to enforce the mask mandate when the ship is in international waters?  Or would a mandatory vaccine allow the cruise lines to avoid the mandate?
