11 Things You Won’t Be Able to Do on Cruises Anymore


Meghan JonesUpdated: Sep. 28, 2020

As cruises do their utmost to avoid a repeat of early 2020, the world of cruising will look quite a bit different as ships set sail again.

Get on board with these changes

Before lockdowns became a reality in the United States, cruise ships provided a disturbing preview of what was to come. From the 14-day quarantine of thousands of people on the virus-stricken Diamond Princess ship in February to harrowing stories of cruise ship workers confined to their tiny cabins for months, these news bytes left people wondering if, or perhaps why, anyone would ever take a cruise again. In April, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued a “no-sail order,” which they then extended in mid-July. This order didn’t actually provide a fixed date that cruises had to be docked until; it just prohibited cruises from sailing until they met certain COVID-19 protection standards.

And now, as a turbulent summer ends, some smaller cruise lines are starting to sail again. Others, however—including major carriers like Royal Caribbean, Carnival, and Disney—are continuing to wait for months to come. Whenever, if ever, you choose to go on a cruise again, here are some things you and your fellow passengers won’t be able to do. Of course, these will vary quite a bit by cruise line and individual ship, but these are the general things experts think you’re likely to see change. Plus, check out these things polite people never do on cruises.

The company reported an adjusted loss of $211.3 million, or 99 cents per share, compared to income of $181.8 million, or 83 cents, in the first quarter of 2019.

Cruise ships have a long history as vectors for infectious diseases, including COVID-19. It would logical if the current pandemic to dampened enthusiasm for cruise vacations, but early signs are that the opposite could be happening. Apparently, people really like cruises, risk of serious illness and death be damned.

This theory rests on what happened after Carnival reopened a limited number of routes last week for bookings starting in August. According to a report from TMZ of all places, cruise reservations made through an American Express travel franchise are through the roof, up 200 percent from where they were at this time last year.

  • Sex among cruise-ship workers is pervasive, current and former cruise-ship employees told Business Insider.

  • But the permissive sexual culture on cruise ships can also lead to aggressive or inappropriate behavior. 
  • Romantic relationships among employees develop and end much faster than on land, which, along with frequent turnover, can make long-term relationships difficult.

Despite a positive COVID-19 test from a passenger who had disembarked days earlier, thousands of people were allowed to leave a cruise ship in Miami Sunday without undergoing medical screening.

The former passenger got off the MSC Meraviglia in Miami on March 8 after an eight-day Caribbean cruise, leaving 103 passengers and the ship’s crew aboard for the next voyage. Four days later, after the ship had sailed with thousands of additional new passengers aboard, the Public Health Agency of Canada informed Broward-based MSC Cruises that the former passenger had tested positive.
