NCLH Will Require Crew to Get Vaccine if Available
Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings has announced that its crew members will most likely be required to get the COVID-19 vaccine.
Recently, CEO Frank Del Rio said that the company was exploring whether they might be able to require the same of passengers, but currently, the rule will only apply to crew if the vaccine is available.
The requirement will apply to staff on Norwegian Cruise Line, Oceania Cruises, and Regent Seven Seas Cruises.
Azamara Buys Princess Ship
The recently-sold cruise line Azamara has announced that it has bought the former Princess Cruises ship, Pacific Princess.
The acquisition will bring the boutique cruise line’s fleet from three ships to four.
Pacific Princess, which is similar in size to Azamara’s current vessels, will undergo an extensive renovation before debuting with her new line for the 2022 Europe cruise season.
Ferry Service Between Florida and Bahamas to Resume
The fast ferry service between Port Everglades and Grand Bahama will resume on February 11. The Bahamas government has finally approved a restart of the service, which was suspended last July due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
During the first phase of the restart, the ferry will run once a week on Thursdays, and by the end of February, a second sailing on Sundays will likely be added. The travel time is about 2 and a half hours one-way.
All passengers will need to provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test completed within three days of boarding, and masks will be mandatory onboard.
