What Can You Expect From The 2021 Cruise Industry?

If you’re like us, you love setting sail for a relaxing cruise. It’s a fantastic way to travel and see lots of different destinations — and with a focus on sustainability, cruising becomes more and more popular every year. 

In 2019 alone, cruises carried nearly 30 million passengers across the globe — but in 2020, sailings were halted due to the COVID-19 health crisis. As operations were suspended in the Spring of 2020, cruise lines scrambled to adjust. They spent months working with leading experts and government authorities to strengthen public health measures so that cruises could resume safely. So what does the future hold for the cruise line industry? 

As of Summer 2020, some cruise lines have resumed sailings in Europe and other parts of the world with enhanced measures in place. These cruise lines continue to work with international and national health authorities for a phased reopening — and they’ve put mandatory protocols into place to maintain the health and safety of passengers, crew, and destinations. 

Current protocols include mask mandates, social distancing, and extra air filtration and ventilation. They also rely on enhanced medical & public health communications, 100% passenger and crew testing, and strict rules for shore excursions. Over 200 sailings have embarked from July through December of 2020, proving that these protocols are working as designed. 

Finally, it’s time for the good news! The industry is on a path to reopening in the United States, Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean, and elsewhere in 2021. You’ll have to pack a protective face covering with your snorkel mask — but you’ll enjoy your cruise safely. Pack your bags and get ready to set sail — cruises are coming back!

Drift helmet is great!

I have the Crimson helmet, great ventilation system, easy hookup for sound as well, love the color! (lots of color options)

Didn’t Last Long

It was good while it lasted. Liked the chair. Emailed the company about this issue and no response. Just send me a new seat, not the whole deal man…Bought on Amazon.

Snorkeling Vest - Palawan

Love it!

Drift Helmet is great!

This helmet is lightweight with good adjustable ventilation system with built in ear speaker capability. Purchased speakers slip right in ear slots... no hassles! not to mention, great selection of colors!

Good mask. Challenge fit

I really like the mask. Unfortunately I have a smallish adult head face and even with measuring it was hard to get a perfect fit. I measured at the medium but it had just a small trickle at the forehead even with tightening so I ordered the smaller size and it is slight small. I suspect I just have that unique face shape and small head size. I’m still practicing with the masks in the swimming pool to decide which one I’m going to take in my trip. I will definitely use it even with imperfect fit I can see well and the trickle is just minimal and doesn’t really interfere with seeing or breathing. I bought one for my daughter and she hasn’t had a chance to try it out yet. I suspect it will fit her better. We are excited to use them on our trip
