“Cruising is the one thing made better by covid. The ship was at less than 50% capacity and it was awesome”.  -PPV client 

PPV was thrilled to send our first family back to sea in late July!  The -L- Family was kind enough to share their first-hand experiences and a few photos of their recent voyage. 

With ships sailing less than full capacity, there are shorter waits and more space per passenger.  This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to sail with limited capacity.  Much like the days when the theme parks opened last summer, you have a feeling of having the whole place to yourself.   

Here’s what the –L- family shared: 

“Everything at the port was well organized and efficient. Sailing with two children was simple as well.  Covid testing was done in the terminal and a separate area was available  After waiting about 20 minutes, the negative results were recorded and copies given to the passengers and immediately after we were on the ship ready to go.   

During the sailing, there were many times when there were only a few guests in the pool or the hot tub in the solarium was empty.  There were no lines for anything.  We were able to hop right on the flow rider.   

While indoors we wore masks; however, there were areas on the ship for vaccinated passengers only and masks were not required.  

Everything was very clean and the service was amazing. We are planning to sail again soon to take advantage of sailing with the limited number of passengers on board.”  


We are so excited that the –L- family had a wonderful experience on their sailing.  Our own PPV team is headed back to sea in the coming weeks and will continue to keep you updated on the latest information.  We go so you know! 

As policies and procedures change and evolve, the specific requirements may vary based on the sailing dates.  For the latest information, always check the healthy sail center at:
