1. Royal Caribbean Group is the next company to make COVID-19 vaccination mandatory for all crew members, including everyone on board Royal Caribbean International, Celebrity Cruises and Silversea Cruises.

2. The port of Cozumel invites cruise lines to use the Mexican island as their home port. Unable to wait for the resumption of cruises from the United States, port officials are trying to revitalize local tourism. Since cruises to the United States are not expected to resume soon, it is hoped that Cozumel can be considered a port of call, despite the logistical difficulties of getting there.

3. Oceania Cruises, owned by Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings, has sold its 180-night cruise in one day. The cruise, which will not depart before 2023, will call at 96 ports in 33 different countries, including three days in Antarctica. But perhaps most surprising is the fact that over a third of all cruise bookings for first time travellers went to Oceania.

In addition, the final payment schedule and the scope of future credits for cruise ships have been expanded.
