The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved booster shots from Pfizer (NYSE:PFE) for the novel cornavirus in children ages 12 to 15 yesterday. With that news came a rally for cruise stocks that is continuing today.

It’s worth pointing out that the rise in cruise stocks comes after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) warned against taking cruises even if fully vaccinated. However, that doesn’t come with a demand that cruise lines stop operating. This opens the way for cruises to continue sailing with passengers. Some just might require that those buying tickets for their trips be fully vaccinated before the board.

Let’s check in with a few of the top cruise stocks below to see how they’re performing today!
