What lessons can be learned from the corona crisis about the way that passengers and crew are tested, diagnosed and quarantined? In our August edition, we find out while investigating Tritan’s massive deployment of free telehealth across the maritime industry.
We also take a closer look at ‘Project Hygiea’, an initiative launched by leading naval architecture and marine engineering firm Foreship to try and limit the spread of pathogens on ships, and put together a list of ways that the passenger experience could change onboard vessels when the industry gets back up and running.
We reveal insights from our time onboard Virgin Voyages’ Scarlet Lady, whose maiden voyage is now set to take place in August, and speak to the organisers of the inaugural Cruise Ship Interior Awards – taking place in mid-June – about what criteria will make ships stand out in years to come.
Finally, we take a look at the massive expansion of Port Everglades in Florida, US – the third largest cruise port in the world – which is expected to include a whopping $1.6bn in infrastructure improvements and last five years.
