Cruising may resume as soon as early 2021.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s “no-sail” order expired at the end of October. But don’t pack your bags just yet!

Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA), the industry’s leading trade group, says its members have voluntarily extended an existing suspension on U.S. operations through December 31st. This gives them time to come up with strict Covid-19 safety protocols to ensure safe sailing for all passengers and crew.

USA Today travel reporter Morgan Hines looked into what travelers can expect as cruise lines prepare to set sail once again.

Airlines are already inching back toward full capacity. What do you think about the return to travel during the pandemic? Is it too soon?
