Several cruise lines suspended operations earlier this year in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, prompting the cancellation of dozens of cruises sailing from Galveston. Come August, at least two cruise lines --Carnival Cruise Line and Royal Caribbean International-- will resume cruises out of Galveston with new safety protocols in place meant to keep passengers and crew members safe from the virus.

These measures include rigorous screening protocols and enhanced sanitation measures.
