CLIA Cruise Line Members to Test All Passengers for Covid-19

All members of the Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) that operate ships with a capacity of 250 or more passengers will conduct coronavirus (Covid-19) tests to all prior to boarding.

According to CLIA, its global Covid-19 testing policy is “a travel industry first and an example of the cruise industry leading the way”.

Upon announcing the new policy recently, CLIA said: “CLIA ocean cruise line members worldwide have agreed to conduct 100% testing of passengers and crew on all ships with a capacity to carry 250 or more persons—with a negative test required for any embarkation.

“We see testing as an important initial step to a multi-layered approach that we believe validates the industry’s commitment to making health, safety, and the well-being of the passengers, the crew, and the communities we visit our top priority.”

CLIA is the world’s largest cruise industry trade association with representation in North and South America, Europe, Asia and Australasia.
