This applies to passengers. Crew members will be required to be vaccinated as soon as the vaccine is available to them, Windstar said.
According to the line, many destinations and some airlines have announced or are considering vaccine mandates, providing further support for this new policy.
Responsible course of action
'Vaccination is another layer of safety for all of us, and it’s the responsible course of action as our yachts resume cruising and our guests travel the world,' Windstar President Chris Prelog said.
Current government and news reports about increased vaccine availability in the United States and abroad give Windstar confidence that travelers will have time to be vaccinated before the line begin sailing.
