The initial news that sent cruise stocks sailing higher was an update from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on travel over the weekend. That pushed shares of companies higher on Monday as it opened the way for cruises to possibly resume.

One of the major cruise companies was ready to spring back into action with plans to launch cruises again as early as July. However, the CDC still has to approve this plan. Even so, that isn’t stopping shares of cruise stocks from climbing higher today.

  • Norwegian Cruise Line (NYSE:NCLH) is next up on the list with shares soaring 3.9% higher and over 20 million shares trading hands. Its daily average trading volume is roughly 21 million shares.

  • Royal Caribbean (NYSE:RCL) closes out the cruise stocks list today with shares up 3.4% and more than 2.4 million changing hands. For comparison, the company’s daily average trading volume is roughly 5.4 million shares.
