The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has lifted their COVID-19 risk advisory for cruise ships, according to NPR‘s Jonathan Franklin.

The CDC has removed its “Cruise Ship Travel Health Notice” from its website, though it still advises guests to be “up to date” on COVID-19 vaccines prior to setting sail. In a statement to NPR, the agency said, “While cruising will always pose some risk of COVID-19 transmission, travelers will make their own risk assessment when choosing to travel on a cruise ship, much like they do in all other travel settings.”

The news comes as a drastic change since December, when the CDC advised guests to avoid cruising, regardless of their vaccination status. The following month, the agency lifted its Conditional Sail Order, praising the industry’s response. Earlier this month, Disney Cruise Line announced that face coverings would become optional for guests in most indoor locations.

  1. I want to cruise with them, but I’m not making my five-year-old girl and my 2 boys get vaccinated to do it. They’ll need to change that rule as well
