Disney Cruise Line will conduct 100% COVID-19 testing for passengers and crew when it resumes sailing

The Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) has released a statement regarding COVID-19 testing for all passengers and crew prior on resumed sailings. All CLIA members, which includes Disney Cruise Line, have agreed to conduct 100% testing of passengers and crew on all ships with a capacity of 250 or more, with a negative test required to set sail.

Below is the CLIA’s official announcement:

Details on how testing will be implemented were not covered in the announcement. Previous reports suggested all guests and crew would have to submit a negative test within 48 hours of their embarkation date, but that has not been officially confirmed.

Disney Cruise Line has not made a statement on testing at this time. However, as a CLIA member, they will follow the protocols established by the group and its other members.

In addition to testing, CLIA members also outlined a series of protocols and regulations they’d follow in order to resume sailing. These included reduced capacity, masks, physical distancing, increased cleaning, new health and response plans, and more.
