It was a tough week for cruisers as more cruise lines pushed their start dates back until the Spring, but there’s plenty of positivity surrounding the industry as more and more people receive the COVID-19 vaccine. There’s hope that once the summer rolls around, those who have been vaccinated will be able to get back on board their favorite cruise lines and visiting their favorite ports.
We’ve also had a lot to be excited about as cruise lines have continued building and launching brand new cruise ships that are just waiting for the go-ahead to welcome passengers on board. Carnival, Costa, Virgin Voyages and others all have brand new ships to show off when cruising comes back and we couldn’t be more excited to get on board and check them out!
