Floridians Want to Book Cruise Trips
OSCEOLA COUNTY, Fla. – Cruise bookings are still made despite the cruise ban by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Connor Zielinski from Kissimmee was actually on a ship as the pandemic shut down the cruise industry last year. Zielinski, who recently got married, said he never took his honeymoon cruise.
“It’s frustrating because I went to Las Vegas a month ago and every seat on this plane was completely full,” he said.
He is not the only one who wants to take a cruise in the middle of the pandemic. Emily Perez-Menendez at St. Cloud is a travel expert and franchise owner at Cruise Planners. He said there is an increase in customers all over the world wanting to cruise.
“The business is starting,” he said. “People are willing to travel. People are tired of being home. People are tired of shrinking and want to find a destination they can go to and feel comfortable with. “
Perez-Menendez said some cruises are booked for travel in 2023, and even far away the availability is getting lower.
COVID-19 vaccinations will be mandatory for many cruise lines, such as the Royal Caribbean, Celebrity and Princess, among others.
