Times Union: NEW YORK – US travelers soon will be able to vacation again on cruise ships, but with two catches: they will need to show they’ve fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and must travel out of the country before boarding.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention barred cruise ships from picking up passengers in US ports more than a year ago because of the pandemic. The CDC hasn’t yet reversed that decision, despite the large number of Americans who have been vaccinated.
