As part of the recommended best practices, the panel — chaired by Gov. Mike Leavitt, the former U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services, and Dr. Scott Gottlieb, the former commissioner of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration — focused on screening guests and crew for potential COVID-19 infections before embarkation as well as contingency plans if an infection does occur, including onboard treatment and isolation.

Colleen McDaniel, the editor-in-chief of Cruise Critic, told Travel + Leisure on Monday that many of the recommendations were already being implemented in Europe, but it was a “big step in the right direction” for U.S. cruising.

“This is the first wide-spread recommendation from the industry for cruises departing from the US, so it’s significant news,” she said. “Until today, we’ve seen protocols revealed on a line-by-line basis from cruise lines that have begun resuming in Europe, but not much information for cruises in the U.S., which are still paused.”
