Cruise Port Rotterdam Newsletter Summer 2020

In the past few months, Rotterdam cooperated in repatriating crews by receiving several cruise vessels, such as the Nieuw Statendam, Regal Princess, Sky Princess, Seabourn Ovation and Norwegian Star. Adhering to the strict measures of the authorities, the crew members were finally allowed to go home. We are proud that we were part of this humanitarian effort.
We have all gone through an unprecedented difficult time, and still are as the COVID-19 pandemic is not over yet. However let us look ahead as thinking ahead about the future of our industry is important too. The good news is that we are slowly restarting in Europe.
