ASTA criticises new US CDC warning to avoid cruise travel

American Society of Travel Advisors (ASTA) has termed as “knee-jerk reaction” the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) updated guidance on COVID-19 and cruise ship travel, which recommends that cruise travel be avoided regardless of vaccination status.



“An increase in reported COVID cases on cruise ships should surprise no one given the worldwide spike driven by the highly transmissible Omicron variant,” ASTA president and CEO Zane Kerby said. “Cruising is no more responsible for the spread of the Omicron variant than travellers from southern Africa were at the outset of the current crisis. But we continue to see knee-jerk reactions singling out travel for discriminatory treatment,” he added.
