At Norwegian Cruise Line, the safety and security of our guests and crew is of the utmost importance. We have been actively monitoring the Zika virus and remain in close contact with public health authorities. We regularly advise our guests to protect themselves from mosquito and other insects bites while ashore and are advising of the Center for Disease Control travel advisories and recommended precautions in daily communications.
At this time, the only passengers that are advised not to travel to affected areas are expectant mothers and we are making accommodations for those very few affected guests to reschedule their cruise for a future date or change their itinerary to non-affected destinations. For those guests who have opted to purchase a Travel Protection policy, cancellations are covered under the "Cancel for Any Reason" portion of the policy.
For anyone else traveling, the best method to avoid any risk is by taking steps to help protect yourself from mosquito and other insect bites and follow the CDC guidelines which include covering exposed skin by wearing long-sleeved shirts, long pants, and hats and use an appropriate insect repellent containing DEET.
