In less than two weeks, Celebrity Cruises is planning to launch the first major cruise from a U.S. port in over a year. The company is requiring passengers 16 and older to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination, but that rule goes against the law in its home state of Florida.

Host Tonya Mosley learns more about this showdown from Taylor Dolven, a reporter for the Miami Herald who covers the tourism industry.
