PORT CANAVERAL, Florida (Gray News) – Starting July 31, Carnival will require all unvaccinated passengers to purchase travel insurance when sailing on its Florida-based vessels.
According to the cruise line, each unvaccinated guest must provide proof of insurance with a minimum of $ 10,000 per person for medical coverage and $ 30,000 for emergency medical evacuation with no COVID-19 exclusions.
Carnival says the policy must designate the unvaccinated guest as the policyholder or beneficiary.
Unvaccinated guests without the required proof of travel insurance are not allowed to board the ship and no refunds will be given.
The shipping company will waive the requirement for guests under the age of 12 as they are currently not eligible for vaccines.
Royal Caribbean is rolling out a similar policy beginning August 1 for unvaccinated guests 12 years of age and older sailing from home ports in Florida.
According to Royal Caribbean officials, travel insurance policies must include at least $ 25,000 per person for medical coverage, $ 50,000 for emergency medical evacuation, and no COVID-19 exclusions.
