The complaint reads, "in an impossible dilemma as it prepares to set sail from Florida: NCLH will find itself either on the wrong side of health and safety and the operative federal legal framework, or else on the wrong side of Florida law." The company further called the law, "debilitating for the entire cruise community.”
The 'Anti-Vaccine law' is backed by the Republican government. Florida’s Republican governor, Ron DeSantis, had put the law into effect on May 3. The order stated a ban on the use of Vaccine passports. Companies resisting the law face a fine of $5,000 per violation for asking customers their vaccination status.
