Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd. will be allowed to require passengers to present proof of COVID-19 vaccination when they board cruises departing from Florida – at least for now.

Late Sunday, the company, parent to Norwegian Cruise Line, Regent Seven Seas Cruises and Oceania Cruises, was granted a preliminary injunction by U.S. District Judge Kathleen Williams, temporarily blocking Florida’s law that bans cruise companies from asking for proof of a COVID-19 vaccine in order to board.

“This order will now allow the company to operate in the safest way possible with 100% vaccination of all guests and crew when sailing from Florida ports,” the cruise line said in a press release issued late Sunday.

Norwegian Cruise Line’s Norwegian Gem ship is scheduled to depart from Miami on Aug. 15. The cruise line hasn’t sailed from Florida since the cruise industry shut down in March 2020. It resumed operations late last month with a sailing in Greece.
