Cruise ships back in service
With cruise lines enhancing their health and safety regulations in recent months, we have seen a fantastic return to cruising. Numerous ships, such as MSC Grandiosa’s much celebrated reintroduction, have now embarked upon their first itineraries since the start of the pandemic, voyaging to the likes of Italy, Norway, France and more. Read on to find out which ships are now back in service.
Thanks to carefully designed Covid-19 health and safety protocols, ships are able to sail safely for both passengers and crew. These protocols often include reduced guest capacity, frequent temperature checks, increased sanitisation particularly in public venues, and contactless dining. As we can see from MSC Cruises' successful return to sailing, we'll be back on the water in no time!
