Margaritaville at Sea Lifts Pre-Cruise Testing
Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville at Sea is the latest cruise line to lift pre-cruise testing. The line announced on Friday that as of July 23, vaccinated guests will no longer be required to submit a negative test result to sail.
Unvaccinated passengers must continue submitting a negative test result taken no more than one day prior to departure.
Margaritaville at Sea operates one ship from the Port of Palm Beach to the Bahamas.
