PORT CANAVERAL, Fla. (Gray News) – Carnival requires all unvaccinated passengers to purchase travel insurance when sailing on its Florida-based ships starting July 31.
According to cruise line, each unvaccinated guest must provide proof of insurance with medical expense coverage of a minimum of $ 10,000 per person and $ 30,000 coverage for emergency medical evacuations and without COVID-19 exclusions.
Carnival says police must name the unvaccinated guest as the policyholder or beneficiary.
Unvaccinated passengers without the required proof of travel insurance will not be allowed to board the ship and no refund will be made.
The cruise line will waive the requirement for passengers under 12, as they are not currently eligible for vaccines.
Royal Caribbean is also implementing a similar policy for unvaccinated guests ages 12 and older departing from Florida home ports on August 1.
According to Royal Caribbean officials, the travel insurance policy must have medical expense coverage of at least $ 25,000 per person, $ 50,000 coverage for emergency medical evacuations, and no COVID-19 exclusions.
