ZIKA VIRUS UPDATE: 2017
The safety and security of all cruise lines guests and crew is of the utmost importance. CruCon Cruise Outlet is working closely with the cruise lines who have been actively monitoring the Zika virus and who remain in close contact with public health authorities. We regularly advise our guests to protect themselves from mosquito and other insects bites while ashore and are monitoring
CDC travel advisories and recommended precautions daily.
At this time, the only passengers that are advised not to travel by the CDC to affected areas are expectant mothers. Most of the cruise lines are making accommodations for those very few affected guests to reschedule their cruise
for a future date or change their itinerary to non-affected destinations.
For anyone else traveling, the best method to avoid any risk is by taking steps to help protect yourself from mosquito and other insect bites and follow the CDC guidelines which include covering exposed skin by wearing long-sleeved shirts, long pants, and hats and use an appropriate insect repellent containing DEET.
