According to the CDC, the new advice follows several coronavirus outbreaks that have been reported aboard cruise ships.
“The virus that causes Covid-19 spreads easily between people in close quarters aboard ships, and the chance of getting Covid-19 on cruise ships is high,” the CDC said in its updated guidance.
The agency advised all travelers to get tested one to three days before taking a cruise and three to five days after returning, regardless of their vaccination status. Those who take a cruise should also quarantine for seven days after returning, even if they test negative for the virus.
