Book and Cruise with Confidence

New mandatory health protocols to keep you safe on board & on shore

You deserve to be worry-free while you’re at sea.

At Frontier Cruises, we’re committed to collaborating with the cruise lines to bring you the latest information as it becomes available. We believe in responsible and safe travel, and want you to be informed and confident when booking your next cruise. As always, our cruise experts are standing by to answer your questions and help you through the planning process. Below is an overview of what the new cruise experience will look like.
Plans Backed by Science and Experts
After months of working with leaders in public safety, biosecurity, epidemiology, hospitality, and maritime operations, the cruise lines are creating a plan for the safe return of cruising. Their recommendations have been adopted by the Cruise Line International Association (CLIA) as the blueprint to follow for the global cruising community. The cruise industry has become the first in the travel sector to commit to 100% testing of passengers and crew worldwide.

New health and safety measures you can expect include:
100% testing of all passengers and crew, with negative results mandated before boarding
Touchless check-in and faster boarding at the cruise terminal
Enhanced sanitation and ventilation
Masks in use when social distancing isn’t possible
Additional medical facilities, equipment, and staff on board
A different — but still fun — cruise experience:
While health and safety are the top priorities, your cruise experience should still be fun! And it will be. The cruise lines are working hard to ensure you can enjoy the same experiences, just in a modified way.

Some modifications you can expect include:
  • Reduced capacity on board and inside specific venues
  • Shore excursions run by the cruise line, limiting exposure to third parties
  • Served buffets
  • Virtual muster drills (so much better than before!)

Norwegian Cruise Line’s Frank Medina explains what changes are taking place on cruise ships.

Payment and Cancellation Flexibility
Change of plans? No problem. Most cruise lines have relaxed their payment and cancellation policies, giving you more flexibility when planning your vacation. Policies vary by cruise line, but many include:

The ability to cancel up to 48 hours prior to departure
Full refunds if you cancel within a certain timeframe
Future Cruise Credits (FCC) for the full price of your original cruise (or higher) that can be used toward a different sailing
