Norwegian Cruise Line Reducing Guest Capacity on Their Cruise Ships

Norwegian Cruise Line has worked with the CDC (Center for Disease Control and Prevention) and has announced six new health and safety measures.

The changes include reducing guest capacity on their cruise ships and adding a staggered embarkation.  The six new changes are as follows:

Norwegian Cruise Line is installing medical-grade air-filters, H13 HEPA, that remove 99.95% of airborne pathogens across their entire fleet to ensure the air you breathe is clean.

All guests will undergo an enhanced pre-embarkation health screening, and those considered at risk will undergo additional screening. Additionally, all crew will undergo extensive screening prior to embarkation and constant monitoring throughout the voyage.

Touchless temperature checks and continuous monitoring of guests and crew throughout the cruise will help identify potential health issues, offering an additional layer of prevention and protection.

All cruise ships will be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected prior to every voyage in accordance with the cruise line’s protocols, which are developed in partnership with CDC’s Vessel Sanitation Program.

Embarkation terminals will be sanitized continuously, and, where possible, fogged before and after each embarkation and debarkation. Further, all staterooms, suites and public areas will be cleaned, sanitized and disinfected at an increased frequency, and including the use of Electrostatic Spray Technology.

To provide even more space for responsible social distancing, guest capacity on board will be reduced. Staggered embarkation and online check-in will be implemented for proper social distancing. In addition, Norwegian Cruise Line is committing to reducing capacity in all public areas throughout the voyage.

Onboard medical centers will be fully equipped with the latest testing kits and medical supplies. They are also increasing their medical team fleetwide. Additionally, each cruise ship has dedicated isolation accommodations should the need arise.

Norwegian is partnering with  local destinations and tour operators to ensure their industry-leading health and sanitation protocols extend to the shoreside experience.

NCL will only visit safe, open ports of call which may cause changes to your itinerary. Keeping guests up-to-date with the latest confirmed changes impacting their itineraries will be a top priority.
