With the continued deescalation of restrictions relating to face coverings in multiple states more and more entertainment companies are now allowing guests and customers to have to option to no longer wear masks.
This now extends to cruise lines as via the Disney Cruise Line website they announced mask restrictions will be removed for most indoor activities:
“For sailings that embark through March 10, all Guests (ages 2 and up, including those who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19) are required to wear appropriate face coverings indoors, except when in their staterooms or actively eating or drinking (while stationary and maintaining an appropriate physical distance). Face coverings are not required for Guests outdoors while on board the ship and at designated locations.”
“For sailings originating from a U.S. port of departure beginning March 11, 2022, face coverings will be optional in most indoor locations throughout our ships. Guests ages 2 and up, including those who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19, will still be required to wear face coverings in the Walt Disney Theatre.”
“Guests under 5 years of age who are currently ineligible to be vaccinated will be required to wear face coverings in Youth Activity spaces and in the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique; and, while not required, we continue to strongly recommend these guests wear a face covering in all other indoor locations. Face coverings may be required in ports of call based on local government requirements.”
These changes come as the CDC (Center for Disease Control) begins to revise their guidelines when it comes to the COVID-19 Pandemic. After two years it appears that the pandemic may finally be coming to an end with the high quality of vaccinated individuals in the United States as well as the more severe and delay variants of the COVID-19 virus begin to become less frequent.
Are you looking forward to sailing the high seas and be able to smell the ocean waves once more? Or do you think it’s too soon?
