Howdy! In today’s episode of #TravelUpdateTuesday we bring you the latest mask mandate from Carnival Cruise Lines.
According to Carnival Cruise lines website these are the new mask requirements — Effective August 7, 2021:
We strongly encourage all guests to wear face masks when indoors, particularly guests who are unvaccinated, including children under the age of 12 who should wear masks in public areas, except when eating or drinking. All guests age 2 and older will be required to wear face masks in elevators and in designated indoor entertainment areas, all retail shops, and in the casino, except when eating or drinking. Guests will be required to wear face masks prior to being seated in our main dining rooms and in the Lido Buffet area and occasionally in other designated areas where larger number of guests may congregate (signs will be posted). Additionally, masks are required in enclosed areas of the ship such as the spa, salon, and at any indoor activity with children under 12 years (i.e., Build-A-Bear®, Family Harbor and Sky Zone®).
All guests must wear masks during the entire embarkation and debarkation process (at the home port and ports of call, including the onboard pre-debarkation process), during any Carnival-approved shore excursions and while on any transportation vehicles, including water shuttles. Additionally, when going ashore, guests must be prepared to follow all local guidance regarding masks and physical distancing. The status of local guidelines will be shared with guests prior to debarkation at the destination.
As always, if you have any questions or concerns about your upcoming Carnival Cruise that you booked through Book Here, Give Here, please reach out to your Travel Gurus.
