The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says getting on a cruise ship is less risky than it was earlier this year.
Taking a trip on a big boat was classified Monday as a level two destination, with “moderate” levels of COVID-19, according to the agency’s website.
The scale is based on labels 1 to 4, with 4 being the greatest potential threat.
In mid-February, the risk level was at a 3.
Despite the drop in a potential health threat, the CDC says cruise passengers should still be fully vaccinated and take other precautionary steps including wearing masks indoors and in crowded areas.
