CLIA members agree to conduct 100 per cent testing
A negative test result will be required before boarding any ship with capacity for 250 or more people

The Cruise Line International Association’s (CLIA) ocean cruise line members have agreed to conduct 100 per cent testing of all passengers and crew for Covid-19 prior to embarkation.

A negative test result will be required before boarding any ship with capacity for 250 or more passengers and crew.

“This is a travel industry first and an example of the cruise industry leading the way,” said CLIA in a statement. “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.”
