This Cruise Line Is Bringing Back Travel This May But There's A Catch

Travel and vacationing continue to be difficult due to the coronavirus pandemic, but one cruise line is taking steps to make relaxing possible in 2021.

Saga Cruises, based in the U.K., intends to set sail this May, but with a pretty significant measure in place to ensure the safety of the crew and passengers.

In order to travel on one of the cruise line's ships, you must have received both doses of the COVID-19 vaccine at least 14 days prior to the ship's departure.

Saga Cruises will be requiring those who wish to board to bring their vaccination documents or any other proof that they are safe to hop on. 

To give those who have booked trips time to get both doses of one of the available vaccines, the company has also delayed the departure of both of its ships.

The ship called "The Spirit of Discovery," which was to set sail on April 3, has been delayed to June 2, while "Spirit of Adventure" is now scheduled to take its voyage on May 4. 

All trips scheduled prior to these dates have been canceled.

However, because enhanced vaccine certificates with QR codes won't come into effect in the province until October 22, a team of volunteer software engineers and medical professionals created a tool that lets you store your proof of vaccination on your phone with a QR code.

"No personal data is sent to the internet. [The] QR code is for verification only, with no personal info," the team behind the tool told CTV News.
