Disney Cruise Line and Royal Caribbean Add Mandatory Temperature Testing

The Disney Dream cruise ship docked at Castaway Cay.

If you are heading out on a cruise from Port Canaveral, be aware that you will likely have to have your temperature checked before you can board.

According to WESH 2:

Starting today all the major cruise lines based in Port Canaveral, Royal Caribbean, Carnival, Disney and Norwegian have added pre-boarding temperature screenings as soon as passengers set foot inside the terminal doors.

If somebody’s temperature is above 100.4 degrees, they and anyone else in their party will undergo a secondary health screening.”

During the secondary screening passengers will have their temperature re-checked as well as have a pulse oximetry reading and a medical professional will check for flu-like or respiratory symptoms. After which they will determine if they are okay to sail.

Now if you are denied boarding you will bet a 100% future cruise credit.

Also keep in mind that passengers will not be allowed to cruise if they have traveled through airports in China, Iran, South Korea or parts of Italy, in the last two weeks.  Or if they are currently being monitored for Covid-19 or have been around someone who was diagnosed in the past 14 days.

Disney has been a big part of my life for years--from family trips to WDW to growing up on Disney classics, TV, and movies. Prior to Pirates and Princesses I successfully ran social media and websites since 2010. I've also been a public speaker and presenter since 2007. I'm the co-host for the YouTube channel Clownfish TV as well as the podcast/ Youtube Pirates and Princesses (PNP) channel. Former contributor, online personality and acting social media manager at The Kingdom Insider (which we built from the ground up and ran from 1997-2019 --Thom didn't quit FYI) Pirates and Princesses was started by my husband and I several years ago. We loved Disney and wanted to honestly cover all aspects from pop-culture to the parks from a consumer focused stance. Living OUR happily ever after getting to do what we love with our two kids! Creating fun content and building new things. Certified art teacher, and mom. Opinions are all mine.
