5 Ways You Can Be Kicked Off a Cruise Ship

Most people assume a cruise will be smooth sailing once they leave the port, but that’s not always the case. Cruise ships can kick you off the cruise once it is underway.

There are obvious reasons a person can be kicked off a cruise, such as committing violence or smuggling drugs online. But what about the not-so-obvious ways? There are quite a few ways to get kicked off a cruise ship that you may not have considered.

Getting Sick

You can get booted from your dream cruise by getting sick once you are on board. A case of the sniffles won’t cause you to get kicked off, but something serious like a stroke or heart attack will.

Perhaps saying you’ll

Ocean Cruise and River Cruise: What’s the Difference?

 

You may think that being on a boat for vacation is the same no matter where you do it, but there’s more to it than simply the vessel you’re on. River cruising has become quite popular recently, and many more people are exploring this cruising experience.

What is the distinction between a river cruise and an ocean cruise? Are there legal differences you should be aware of? Here is what you need to know about river cruises versus the ocean cruises you may be more familiar with to help you decide if it’s something you want to try.

Key Differences

One of the biggest differences between ocean cruises and river cruises is – obviously – the waters they travel

Does My Kid Need to Be Vaccinated to Go on a Cruise?

Many people are ecstatic that cruising is back. However, just because cruising has resumed doesn’t mean you should toss all your worries about COVID.

Recently, a Norwegian Cruise Line ship had 17 people test positive for COVID while on board. While this may not sound like much on a cruise of 3,200 people, it is a high percentage when you consider the cruise’s line very strict COVID vaccination policy in place. Everyone on board was required to be fully vaccinated. They required passengers to take a COVID test before boarding, and the test needed to have a negative result.

Still, because of these COVID policies, no social distancing measures were taken on board, and they had no capacity restrictions in

Cruise Safety: Embarking On Your First Post-COVID Cruise

As the number of vaccinated Americans continues to rise, travel restrictions are relaxed, and cruises are ready to set sail on the ocean blue. Cruise lines have been encouraged to go to great lengths to ensure that COVID-19 outbreaks will be stamped out at first sight through cruise safety protocols.

COVID-reducing protocols include but are not limited to social distancing, limited capacity, mask policies, and COVID-19 testing. These have been implemented to curb an outbreak from the start. While cruise lines are expected to do their part, you are also expected to keep in mind your own safety and the safety of those around you.

In this post, we will go over everything you need to know to optimize your

Who’s Sailing This Summer and How Will It Work?

If you’re someone who loves cruises, this past year (and change) has likely felt torturous. For the past 15 months, cruises have essentially been cancelled — and with no clear end in sight.

The closures made complete sense. After all, at one point 17% of all COVID cases in the U.S. could be linked back to cruises.

Now, however, much of the country seems to be reopening and getting back to normal — or at least the “new normal.” Will cruises follow suit?

They already are.

Back in April, the CDC released a letter to the cruise industry saying that cruises could restart provided that 98% of the crew and 95% of the passengers were vaccinated. Then, in May, Royal

Cruise Lines Eager to Sell Tickets Again—But They Won’t Refund

After all that people went through in 2020, 2021 is shaping up to be a very kind type of year. One of the ways it’s going to be different? Travel. That’s right – travel is back!

Not only do more and more people want to travel – and, more importantly, are willing to travel. Travel companies like cruise lines are also enticing travelers with great deals and discounts.

Of course, this doesn’t always work out – especially with the cruise restrictions in place.

Even the best-laid plans can get canceled. Princess Cruises, for example, canceled several sailings through August of 2021 and others through the end of the year.

To help protect you from losses related to cancellations, you need

Will It Be the Vaccine That Reopens the Cruise Industry Fully?

Everyone across the world has been dealing with the dangers of COVID-19 for a year, which makes the recent news of an effective vaccine very welcome.

The vaccine won’t be available to everyone right away, however, so many people have months before their travel plans can be followed through with. Still, the news of the vaccine has many people who love cruising excited and the cruise line industry feeling optimistic.

Here’s what you need to know about the distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine, how COVID is currently being handled on cruises, and what the vaccine could mean for your travel plans.

The COVID Vaccine Roll Out

In many states, vaccines will be rolled out in three phases. First, those on
