Cruise companies will not be allowed to sail for up to 100 days after the Centers for Disease Control issued the industry a “no sail” order.
FloridaToday.com reports that the order will likely further hurt South Florida’s tourism industry, which is already reeling from a nationwide reduction in travel.
The report says that one of three things must happen before cruises may return to normal operation:
- The CDC director rescinds the “no sail” order
- The expiration of a health and human services COVID-19 public health emergency
- 100 days pass after the publication of the order in the Federal Register
According to the report, Port Canaveral estimates that it will lose $22.5 million in revenue, including ship docking fees and customer parking fees.
