As Covid is spreading again on cruises, they plan to keep sailing

Published December 28, 2021


The Washington Post reported on the recent rise in COVID-19 infections on cruise ships and quoted Tom Russo, who had a Baltic cruise planned for this past fall that he postponed for a year due to ports closing and logistics concerns. He said that although he enjoys cruises, now is not the time for anyone who is immunocompromised or at high risk of severe disease — advice the CDC also gives. “I think it’s a hard pass on cruises right now” for that population, he said. “Just be patient, wait until this current wave passes.”
