Prevention tips

PROVIDED BY ROYAL CARIBBEAN: DOING YOUR PART. TIPS FOR PREVENTING ILLNESS, LIKE CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19):

  • After bathroom visits and before meals and snacks (it’s a cruise, there’s lots of that), make sure to wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
  • If you happen to sneeze or cough, cover your nose and mouth with tissue (or your upper sleeve) – never your hands or without covering your nose and mouth. It’s the polite thing to do.
  • Use hand sanitizer often. Rub the gel thoroughly and in between your fingers, until your hands are dry.
  • For more information, you can also visit U.S. Center for Disease Control’s website here or the NHS site in the UK here.
