Cruise Ship Deals From Royal Caribbean, Princess Cruises, Carnival and Others

Cruises in the U.S. are currently halted amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, while some voyages operating outside the country have resumed.

Some cruise deals are available for voyages in Europe and the Caribbean from some major cruise lines, such as Royal Caribbean, Carnival, and Princess Cruises.

While Americans are able to travel on cruises abroad, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention advises: “At this time, the CDC still recommends avoiding any travel on cruise ships, including river cruises, worldwide, because the risk of COVID-19 on cruise ships is very high.”

    Israel-Palestine Conflict Amid Jerusalem Tension In Photos
    In recent days, Israeli forces have fired rubber-tipped bullets, tear gas and stun grenades in the Al-Aqsa mosque compound, wounding hundreds of Palestinians during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan. The violence over access to the holy site sacred to both Muslims and Jews as well as the possible eviction of several Palestinian families from a neighborhood in east Jerusalem by Jewish settlers, marks the first major crisis in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict since President Joe Biden took office in January. The conflict escalated when Hamas and other armed groups fired rockets towards Israel, and Israel fired airstrikes on the Gaza strip.

The health body warns: “That’s because the chance of getting COVID-19 on cruise ships is high, since the virus appears to spread more easily between people in close quarters aboard ships.

“Cruise passengers are at increased risk of person-to-person spread of infectious diseases, including COVID-19, and outbreaks of COVID-19 have been reported on cruise ships,” it adds.

Americans who decide to go on a cruise abroad “should get tested 1–3 days before their trip and 3–5 days after their trip, even if they are fully vaccinated,” the health body advises.

See the CDC website for the latest advice on cruise travel during the pandemic.

Some cruises in other regions have resumed services, including in parts of Europe, Asia, the South Pacific as well as the Caribbean.

For cruising enthusiasts in the U.S. looking to book a cruise at this time, here are some of the latest deals on offer.
