Cruise Lines International Association Australasia is calling for a pathway to revive the industry after the Morrison government extended its ban on international cruise ships until September 17. Managing Director Joel Katz says he believes “there is a pathway for a responsible resumption of cruising”. “While those international borders remain closed, let’s offer domestic cruising within our borders — carrying Australians only — and with that, we can help restore some of that economic impact,” Mr Katz told Sky News. He said the ships would be committed to enforcing COVID-19 safety protocols but the risk of transmission would not be any greater than on land. “While we’re only offering domestic cruising, it’s the same risk as somebody being able to travel around Australia by land and we’re not asking for anything different.”
