Duffy Tells Holt that Carnival Will Not Require Vaccines
Duffy said that requirement would exclude many children.
Carnival cruise line president Christine Duffy told Lester Holt on NBC Nightly News last night that her cruise lines will not require vaccines to cruise. Duffy said there is no other business requiring vaccines and if they were to require them, it would prevent many children from cruising because vaccines are not available to children under 12.
The CDC has recently adjusted its guidelines to allow cruise lines to sail without first offering simulated cruises if 98% of the crew and 95% of the guests are vaccinated. Duffy also told Holt that Carnival is working towards a July restart because President Biden said the country should be reopened by July 4th.
