Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Submits Restart Paperwork

On Monday morning, Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings president Frank Del Rio submitted restart paperwork to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control. 

Some of the new protocols outlined include the requirement for all cruisers and crew to be vaccinated, and implementing a limited restart with 60 percent capacity. 

A statement from NCLH said in part, “While the risk of COVID-19 cannot be eliminated in its entirety, over the past eight months the cruise industry has successfully carried nearly 400,000 passengers in more than 10 major cruise markets outside the United States.”
