Much has been achieved and completed, but now it is of paramount importance to join forces and be united in meeting an unprecedented challenge: to restart cruise activities across the Med and its adjoining seas, amidst the Covid-19 public health emergency.

Committee of experts composed of colleagues amongst ports and associated members. We need to keep focused on the situation and not forget the emergency is still underway. But I truly believe that in 2021 we shall put in place all the activities undertaken during this extremely difficult year, and have the opportunity to resume cruise operations in full safety. I am confident that the lessons learnt during this extraordinary year will come of use in future times.
