Cruising was a popular way to travel before the pandemic stepped in, making the ships a perfect potential virus breeding ground with many people packed closely together.
Now, like many other businesses, cruise lines have implemented changes to their facilities and operations to resume trips while working to prevent the spread of COVID.
