Norwegian Raises Zika Virus Awareness





10 February 2016

Warnings about Zika virus are all over the news. Travelers to regions where it's commonly found now have the reason to be concerned and that includes a lot of destinations on cruise itineraries. NCL (Norwegian Cruise Line) informed their guests and by sending the following advisory to the travel agent partners of the company:

"We want you to be aware that we have been actively monitoring the Zika virus and remain in close contact with public health authorities. As always, the safety and security of our guests and crew is of the utmost importance. We regularly advise guests to protect themselves from mosquito and other insects bites while ashore and are advising of the Center for Disease Control (CDC) travel advisories and recommended precautions in daily communications. 

At this time, the only passengers who are advised not to travel to affected areas are expectant mothers and we have made accommodations for those very few affected guests to reschedule their cruise for a future date in the next two years 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 recommended method for avoiding risk is to take steps to protect 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. 

We are continually monitoring the situation as well as the recommended methods for avoiding risk."
