Set A Course To Restart Cruising: U.S. Travel

The U.S. Travel Association has joined calls to urge that the CDC’s conditional sail order be lifted and that there should be a phased-in resumption of cruise operations ‘as quickly as possible.’

In a statement, U.S. Travel Association President and CEO, Roger Dow said that:
“The standard of evidence should be exceptionally high for rules that effectively single out certain industries as other parts of the economy are allowed to reopen. Restrictions have taken a disproportionately heavy toll on the travel industry and our millions of workers, and the rule preventing cruise operations is uniquely specific.”

Dow made it clear that: “It is economically imperative to find the pathways to reopening, and the evidence is clear that a layered approach to health and safety allows the safe resumption of travel.”

And he concluded: “We join the calls to identify the way toward lifting the Conditional Sail Order and allowing the phased resumption of cruise operations as quickly as possible.”
