Cruising 2021 onwards is looking good
Updated 17th June, 2021
In the past week, the number of passengers who have sailed internationally reached 550,000 since cruise operations resumed last year – yet another important milestone for our industry.
Frustratingly, none of these passengers has sailed from Australia or New Zealand and our region is now the only major cruise market in the world where governments have made no progress towards resumption.
Last week’s announcement that Australia’s cruise suspension has been extended for another three months was not unexpected given the government’s warning that travel restrictions are likely to remain into next year.
As we chip away at getting closer to being back on the waters I thought I would share the latest in cruising with the release of Richard Branson’s new ship, Scarlet Lady.
