Cruise Ships Embracing Vaccine Segregation, Unvaccinated Customers Face Mounting Restrictions

Kathryn Watson, a White House reporter for CBS News, floated total vaccine segregation as a viable option in response to mounting complaints about restrictions the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has imposed on the cruise industry, requiring nearly everyone aboard to be vaccinated. Meanwhile, Royal Caribbean is implementing a workaround, offering segregated areas for the unvaccinated, for ships sailing out of Florida, which has banned the use of vaccine passports.
