New York (CNN Business)Norwegian Cruise Line wants to start US cruises again on July 4, and it's willing to require all passengers and staff to be vaccinated before it sets sail.

It's the first major American cruise line to lay out plans for a resumption of US sailings.

The Cruise Line International Association, the industry trade group, Monday called the CDC's statement "disappointing," "unduly burdensome" and "largely unworkable. " It said the health agency is demanding a zero-risk approach for cruises, rather than calling for efforts to mitigate the pandemic, which is said is the CDC's guideline for "every other US sector of our society. "

"The lack of any action by the CDC has effectively banned all sailings in the largest cruise market in the world," said the group's March 24 statement.

The guidance from CDC that is blocking US cruises "does not reflect the industry's proven advancements and success operating in other parts of the world, nor the advent of vaccines, and unfairly treats cruises differently," said the group's CEO Kelly Craighead.
