The warning also includes river cruises and international cruises.
But if you are determined to set sail, the CDC recommends getting tested three to five days after your trip.
Even if you test negative, you should stay home for a full week.
The advisory comes nearly one month after the CDC lifted its cruise ban.
However, many major cruise lines have canceled trips until 2021.
