Cruise Industry News Jun 2021

by Asa Sargeant | July 1, 2021 | Cruise & Maritime, Cruise Industry News | 0 Comments

Another month has passed since our last dip into cruise news, and we remain very optimistic. As our cruise industry news Jun 2021 round-up shows, challenges remain. Yet this robust industry is heavily populated by innovators seeking to overcome issues both old and new.

Cause For Cautious Optimism For The Cruise Industry

This BBC News story covers a recent guest experience aboard the MSC Virtuosa. The cruise industry has suffered hugely throughout the pandemic, and huge challenges remain. There will be many people seeking to book a cruise in the coming months but coronavirus restrictions must be dealt with. In our experience, solutions to issues have always been found.

Freedom Of The Seas To Carry Guests This Week

After a successful simulation, Royal Caribbean International have received a conditional sailing certificate to begin July 2nd. This story from Seatrade Cruise News details how the CDC has also approved 6 further simulations, which is positive news for the industry.

- Allure of the Seas (July 27 from Port Canaveral)
- Symphony of the Seas (Aug. 1 from Port Miami)
- Independence of the Seas (Aug. 1 from Port of Galveston)
- Mariner of the Seas (Aug. 11 from Port Canaveral)
- Serenade of the Seas (July 7 from Port of Seattle)
- Oasis of the Seas (Aug. 22 from Cape Liberty at Bayonne)


MSC To Build An Environmentally-Advanced Cruise Ship

As reported here by Cruise Industry News, the MSC Euribia will in fact be the cruise line’s most advanced ship from an environmental perspective. MSC’s 22nd vessel will be the second to run on LNG, and its CO2 emissions could be up to 25% lower than standard ships.
