Important Safety Protocols

The health and safety of all attendees is our top priority. As such, the FCCA Cruise Conference will be a 100 percent vaccinated event. All attendees and staff will be required to be fully vaccinated, with the final vaccine at least two weeks prior to arrival. You may be asked to show proof of vaccination upon entry of the hotel or conference center. 
Further bolstering everyone’s safety during this in-person event, we ask that you adhere to the additional protocols outlined below:
• Always wear your mask when indoors and in forms of transportation.
• Maintain physical distancing (3-6+ feet) when possible.
• Avoid physical contact, such as handshakes, embraces, etc. – and instead utilize alternate forms of greetings.
• Use hand sanitizers, which will be readily available.
• Allow for meals to be managed by servers for the highest standard of food service safety.



The FCCA conference is designed to foster a better understanding of the inner workings of the cruise industry and helps attendees improve their cruise tourism business. Through a specialized forum that blends meetings and workshops with social functions, attendees have a unique opportunity to develop relationships with, promote products to, and learn from approximately 100 executives from FCCA Member Lines who decide where ships call, what is sold and used onboard and how to invest in destinations and infrastructure.
