Although the Disney Cruise Line had canceled its cruises through the end of the year along with many other cruise lines, the latest update may change when guests are able to head back on ships again!

The CDC has recently announced new guidelines surrounding the risk of travel on cruise ships. While they were previously classified as a Level 3 risk, now cruise ships have been bumped up to a Level 4 categorization.

The new category helps the CDC better organize destinations and travel methods based on risks that come with cruise travel. Guests who choose to embark on a cruise should get tested three to five days after their trip and quarantine for a week, even if their tests come back negative. If guests don’t get tested, it is recommended to quarantine for 14 days.
