On Monday, Norwegian Cruise Line and Royal Caribbean submitted their 65-page report to the CDC outlining their plan for how cruises can set sail again.Since the coronavirus pandemic halted travel and shut down ports across the world, the cruise industry has been hit hard.

The Healthy Sail Panel, formed in July, comprises executives from both companies, hospitality experts, and former public health officials.
