Norwegian Cruise Line said it will no longer require guests and crew members to wear face masks on board starting March 1, according to the company’s website.

The cruise line recommends that passengers wear face coverings while on board indoors, except when actively eating or drinking or when in their room.

“Masks are also recommended outdoors when physical distancing of at least six (6) feet cannot be maintained. The decision to wear a mask on board is at the discretion of each guest.”

According to the website, when customers sail from a European port, guests will be required to wear blankets on board inside, except when eating or drinking or in their rooms.

“Face masks that have two or more layers that completely cover your nose and mouth and fit snugly over your face are permitted. Face masks must block light when held up to a bright light source. Masks with exhalation valves or vents; single layer or masks made of thin fabrics that do not block light (i.e. neck gaiters) are not permitted.”
