  • Cruise Scotland Statement on Covid-19 (Coronavirus)
February 28th 2020

The safety and health of passengers, crew and port staff is the number one priority for the UK cruise industry.

Cruise lines worldwide are maintaining close contact with health professionals and regulators, including the World Health Organisation (WHO), and are continually assessing and modifying policies and procedures as developments emerge. This includes the modification of itineraries, where required, as well as health, travel and contact screening where appropriate, for passengers and crew who have recently travelled from or through affected areas.

Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) makes up over 90% of the ocean-going cruise capacity worldwide and member cruise lines updated protocols can be found here.
