    Inspections for ships re-entering North American waters


    Cunard have extended the first Transatlantic by 2 days and the reason is. ‘when ships first re-enter North American waters they will undergo inspections by authorities. To allow time for these inspections,’.

    Does anyone have any idea what this might involve? Is it just ship paperwork exercise or possibly more testing of passengers?


    Fairly standard for ships to go through inspection.
    It's been done for years on first visit to US after an absence.

    Might be more extensive to check covid protocols.

    You can see the results of the The Vessel Sanitation Program inspection on the CDC web site.



      Is this Cunard T/A sailing empty?

      I did read the CDC has imposed a 10 day quarantine on ships returning to US port from overseas deployment.
      I hear some lines believe they can use an 8 day TA sailing as part of that quarantine,,hence just 2 days actual quarantine in the US.

        Thank you for your replies. We are booked on this crossing so it won’t be sailing empty?
