In order for the cruise travel company, Royal Caribbean International, to arrive or depart from a US port, it will need an authorization from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) due to the coronavirus pandemic.
ANDThis means that the company will have to take some test cruise trips using employees and volunteers as passengers to test safety and health protocols, according to the Cruise Industry News portal.
“We are going to make a series of trips with our employees and other volunteers to test protocols and make modifications”Said Sadi Vicki Freed, senior vice president of sales and business support and service for the company.
Freed said the company will seek volunteers, but has not yet released details. He also said that the first cruises to be offered next year could be short trips to Cayo Coco.
The Mariner and Navigator of the Seas, Royal Caribbean’s recently refurbished short-voyage ships, are expected to be used for testing.
