May 11. The days of quiet cruise ships are about to become a thing of the past as cruise lines are increasingly dropping pandemic-era capacity restrictions.
Cruise lines across the country are slowly returning to pre-pandemic times after initially implementing rules like mask wearing and limiting the number of people on board to convince cruisers to come back to sea, Cruise Critic reported. Now, as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention continues to relax its rules, several companies have done the same, like Celebrity Cruises, Royal Caribbean, and Virgin Voyages.
And Royal Caribbean’s President and CEO Michael Bayley recently predicted most of the company’s ships will be back at full capacity as the summer — and the Memorial Day holiday weekend — kicks off.
