february 2021

The ongoing Covid-19 pandemic makes it hard to predict what Future Cruise will bring to the table next year – particularly as some cruise lines have now opted to extend their suspension from service to boost their preparedness for a post-Covid-19 world. Nevertheless, the delay could be cause for a build in anticipation for some of the fantastic voyages passengers will (fingers crossed) set sail on in Winter 2021.

We’ll take at some of the biggest itineraries from some of the biggest operators – such as Royal Caribbean, Carnival Cruise Line, Princess Cruises and Costa Cruises – and find out how cutting edge technologies and safer working practices will boost safety for staff and passengers.

Another key facet for cruise ships return will be their commitment to eco-friendliness and greener fuels. We’ll analyse the industry’s step towards a green transition alongside the rest of shipping as the International Maritime Organization attempts to reduce the carbon intensity of international shipping, compared to 2008 levels, by 40%, by 2030.

It’s been a difficult year for the cruise industry. However, we at Future Cruise are optimistic that cruise lines will one day return with better offerings than ever before.
