Cruise passengers to face ‘rigorous’ medical checks before being allow to travel

The UK’s biggest cruise line told the PA news agency it is developing plans to introduce a series of “stringent measures” to ensure it obeys international health guidelines when it restarts operations once the coronavirus pandemic recedes. Earlier this month, easyJet announced it expects to keep middle seats empty on its planes when it restarts flights to enable social distancing. In recent weeks many were forced to cut their itineraries short and some were left in limbo when ports refused to let them dock over fears of increasing the spread of coronavirus.
