Australia Cruising

Australia is a basket case....for one reason or another they don't want cruising to start this year!...we are approaching the cruising season and we have an average of 3 to 4 ships a week in Sydney alone. But try and tell that to the Australian government!...they are concerted what happened early last year with the covid cases on board the Princess Ship. We will be lucky that cruises will be open in march 2022. Otherwise more money will be lost to local tourism.

It's much more predatory from that I'm afraid. Dan Tehan made an announcement at a News International Conference a few months ago and said he welcomed cruises resuming, because air travel would increase to the departure ports. This echoed what Skroo Turner had said (CEO of Flightcentre) and there was general consensus that cruises had resumed worldwide. Fast forward six months, Dan Tehan has stonewalled any correspondence about cruises, as has Greg Hunt. Both of them hide behind 'Doherty modelling' or 'AHPPC expert advice' which is at odds with the rest of the world's advice. Clearly, this is rancid electioneering - ScoMo doesn't want any more 'outbreaks onboard ships' or 'trouble before the vote'. That's it, plain and simple - he's shut down cruises in Australia for 2+ years. Utterly disgusting, immoral, and illegal activity.

I saw that Australia is reopening to international travel in November for fully vaccinated Australians. However, no word on the cruise situation. I really feel for the cruise industry there, especially with all the other countries opening up and working with the industry. I hope we get to hear something very soon.
