Masks required on select cruise lines

Two major cruise lines are requiring masks on select Alaska trips amid an increase in COVID-19 cases in the state.

Princess Cruises and Holland America Line both brought back the mandate for some sailings in the region.

“Masks are now required at all indoor locations on northbound and southbound Alaska voyages between Whittier and Vancouver until further notice,” Princess Cruises spokesperson Briana Latter told USA TODAY in an email. She also said masks are recommended  on Princess cruises in the United States “in the majority of venues, though they may be required in select venues or situations.”

Holland America has made a similar change.

“Currently, we are requiring masks in all indoor locations (except while eating, drinking, or in your stateroom) for select Alaska voyages (specifically one-way voyages from Whittier to Vancouver or Vancouver to Whittier),” Holland America spokesperson Bill Zucker told USA TODAY in an email.
