Costa Safety Protocol, which is designed to guarantee the best cruise experience with maximum safety is to be enforced during the upcoming short cruises onboard and ashore. The main safety protocols feature swab tests for all passengers and crew, temperature checks each time travellers disembark and return to the cruise ship, visits to destinations with protected trips organized by the line, social distancing onboard and in the terminals due to the reduction of the number of guests, enhancement of sanitation and medical services, new ways to use onboard services, and use of protective masks.
