Federal Court Removes CDC Restrictions from Florida-Based Cruises

In an update to the legal battle over the pandemic regulations enacted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, a federal appeals court has ruled in favor of removing the restrictions for cruises sailing out of Florida.

This ruling means that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention can no longer enforce these restrictions, but they can still set them as guidelines.

This news follows the announcement that the Disney Cruise Line will begin sailing once again from Port Canaveral, Florida, in August. It’s important to remember that the Disney Cruise Line is entitled to set their own rules and regulations on board.

  1. People really need to read all the restrictions DCL has placed I n future cruises. Lots n of time wil be spent in your cabins as everything is limited in needing kids shows. No meet n greets, deck parties, first come limited seating at shows and only 1 Broadway show for entire cruise and your kids get one session per day at the clubs. Also no nursery for the under 3. Firework show must be reserved and not all will get to go and prepare you kid no pool time and masks for all I doors with plenty of stick up your nose tests.

  2. Good, as it should be. CDC should NEVER be the one to enforce restrictions, but only serve to guidelines.
