Cruise ships banned from entering Spanish waters until the state of emergency is lifted

   May 24, 2020 ,   Cruise Industry

As lockdown due to the Coronavirus  (COVID-19) crisis begins to ease, Spain's cruise ship ban is being extended, just like it was extended in Australia (through September 16).

On March 27, the rules were first put in place which prohibited any cruise vessel with passenger capacity 100+ from operating voyages in Australia. New Zealand's current cruise ship ban expires on June 30, but could also be extended.

Spain extends cruise ship ban

Australia's move to halt the spread of the virus comes just days after Spain announced the extension of its cruise ship restrictions. According to Pedro Sanchez (Spain’s Prime Minister), the country will be opening to tourists in 2020 despite suffering from high Coronavirus and death rates earlier in the year.
