The super cruise ship industry is on the way to revival



A super cruise ship has just allowed American tourists on deck for the first time, ending a string of days of stagnation for a huge industry.

The Celebrity Millennium cruise ship of Celebrity Cruises, an arm of the Royal Caribbean Group, departs from Philipsburg, St.Maarten welcomed American tourists for the first time.  This is Royal Caribbean's first super cruise ship to allow US citizens to board since the industry was ravaged by Covid-19 in March 2020.

 "Today, we set sail again. This is an important moment for our company, our industry and the Caribbean. The day has finally arrived for our passengers and crew.  We're really speechless," said Lisa Lutoff- Perlo, President and CEO of Celebrity Cruises.

 There were about 500 passengers on board, 95% of which were fully vaccinated.  Children, who are not yet vaccinated, must have a negative test certificate for Covid-19 before boarding.  All crew members are also fully vaccinated. Over 80% of our passengers said they'd prefer to go on a cruise with fully vaccinated people. It's like traveling in a bubble,"

 This is the first giant cruise ship to set sail in the Caribbean after more than a year of stalling.  Therefore, it gives passengers special emotions.  Even for the crew, there was a sense of excitement.  Many people clapped their hands to welcome the special event that showed normal life was back and everyone was happy with it.

 The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said cruise lines can resume operations in the US' seas.  However, they must comply with the conditions set forth by the CDC, especially in compliance with the vaccination of the crew and the control of passengers.
