VesselsValue, a UK-based maritime data provider, has created a calendar to show how the cruise industry has been affected by the coronavirus.
The infographic shows the industry from January 2020 – when the total number of COVID-19 cases in the world was not clear while cruise sailings were at a “record high” – to November 2020, which brought a “new hope” to the industry thanks to the CDC no-sail order being lifted and news of successful coronavirus vaccine trials.
On the positive side, the recent news of a potential vaccine could be a shot in the arm for the Cruise Industry. Both Carnival and Royal Caribbean enjoyed a well needed uptick in their stock value.
Also positive are the statistics from Cruise companies showing that with the correct procedures and protocols in place, COVID safe Cruises can set sail. #HopeFloats
