Cruise with Confidence

Set sail in the safest vacation environment

95–100% vaccination rates and new protocols offer you peace of mind

Since June of 2021, cruises have been sailing from the U.S. using the safest health protocols in the travel industry. The CDC recently recognized the effectiveness of the cruise industry’s unmatched health and safety protocols by completely removing the risk warning against cruise travel. No other vacation option will offer you the assurance of 95–100% vaccination rates, pre-embarkation testing, and the transparency of sharing case numbers and incidents. Plus, the onboard experience is better than ever! With less people on board and a fully staffed crew ready to serve your every need, the customer service experience is at an all-time high.
Choose from convenient ports now open across the country and set sail with peace of mind. Our Travel Safety Verified Experts are trained to answer your questions and help you plan your dream getaway.

A Better Guest Experience
What to Expect on Board

  • Reduced guest capacity
    Fewer guests on board (but a fully staffed crew) means more space and even better service
  • Surrounded by safety
    Have peace of mind knowing 95-100% of people are vaccinated
  • High level of protection
    Enhanced health protocols, pre-embarkation testing, and mask wearing in some situations
  • Touchless technology
    Mobile apps used for contactless food and beverage service, unlocking doors, and more
  • Healthy spaces
    Meticulous cleaning, upgraded air filtration systems, and daily housekeeping (unlike most hotels)
  • Non-stop fun
    Onboard dining, entertainment, activities, spas, and casinos are available
  • Safe passage home
    In the event of a positive test at the port of embarkation or while on board, the cruise line will help facilitate arrangements for (and in some cases cover the cost of) medical treatment, quarantine, and travel

Know Before You Go
Health and Safety Requirements

The cruise line safety requirements create the safest environment for your vacation and are continually being evaluated and updated as public health standards evolve. Make sure to check out our Help Center and view the policies below for more information specific to each cruise line, ship, and destination. Cruise lines reserve the right to make changes to their protocols at any time, and it is your responsibility to review the latest health requirements issued by the cruise line before you board your cruise.

Payment and Cancellation Flexibility

Most cruise lines have relaxed their payment and cancellation policies to give 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, and Future Cruise Credits (FCCs) for the full price of your original cruise (or higher) that can be used toward a different sailing.
