Health & Safety: Maintaining the Bubble

With vaccines starting to roll out, it appears that we may be on the brink of some normalcy and that Cruise may soon begin again in earnest. But vaccinated or not, guests will still be looking for robust health protocols onboard and onshore.

This session gives an overview of how the ‘bubble’ surrounding guests is secured for the direction of a cruise, from embark, while onboard, during shore excursions, and until guests begin their journey home.

Speakers Include:

Deirdre van Gameren, MSc., Sustainability Researcher

Bud Darr, Executive Vice President, Maritime Policy and Government Affairs, MSC Cruises
Paul Austin, Head of Safety, Security, Crisis & Business Continuity Management (SVP), Intercruises Shoreside & Port Services
