State Department: Amid coronavirus risk, Americans ‘should not travel by cruise ship’
The department wrote in a tweet: “U.S. citizens, especially with underlying conditions, should not travel by cruise ship. #CDC notes increased risk of #COVID19 on cruises. Many countries have implemented screening procedures, denied port entry rights to ships and prevented disembarking.”
Carnival Cruise Line sent a letter to guests on Friday addressing the current situation. Included in the message was information regarding perks customers will receive if they don’t reschedule their previously booked trips.
