Responding to the CDC’s fresh cruise travel warning, the Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) has called the decision perplexing and said the CDC has singled out the industry.

In a prepared statement issued on Thursday, the industry’s Washington D.C-based trade group and lobbying organization expressed its frustration.

The decision by the CDC to raise the travel level for cruise is particularly perplexing considering that cases identified on cruise ships consistently make up a very slim minority of the total population onboard.

It is far fewer than on land and the majority of those cases are asymptomatic or mild in nature, posing little to no burden on medical resources onboard or onshore CLIA said.


No setting can be immune from this virus. However, it is also the case that cruise provides one of the highest levels of demonstrated mitigation against the virus.

Cruise ships offer a highly controlled environment with science-backed measures, known testing and vaccination levels far above other venues or modes of transportation and travel, and significantly lower incidence rates than land.
