BALTIMORE (WJZ) — On Dec. 23, a Royal Caribbean cruise ship is expected to be docking in Baltimore to pick up passengers and depart later that day.
“I’m going to be your cruise director this week here on board the carnival pride,” said the cruise director.
Hundreds of travelers are masked up and ready to go to the Bahamas, even with the unending threat of COVID-19.
“No, not really, we’ve both been vaccinated, we feel pretty safe,” said one passenger. “We go above and beyond. We have the touchless stations, now the touchless bathrooms, but we’ve taken it serious.”
Executive Director at the Port of Baltimore said they have followed all safety protocols and implemented new systems to keep people safe.
“We had to get these agreements in place hundreds of lawyers govt officials we worked with eh CDC and we worked well bring it to this day
And because of this, the seven-day cruise is not a concern for the horns, who came from Ohio to depart from this port.
“I don’t think the risks are any more than being at home going to Kroger with a lot more fun involved when families like the horns come to town, it helps the city, not just the port,” said one passenger.
“The economic benefits for the city of Baltimore, hotels, restaurants so thousands of people come in the day before they spend money in the city of Baltimore,” said one resident.
In Nov. a newer cruise, the Carnival ‘Legend’ will replace the Carnival Pride at Baltimore’s port. The pride will then start departing from Tampa.
