Information for the cruise industry
The Communicable Diseases Network Australia (CDNA) has developed national guidelines for the prevention, control and public health management of COVID-19 outbreaks on cruise ships in Australia.
The Eastern Seaboard Cruise Protocols have been endorsed by the NSW Government and co-designed by officials from the NSW, Victorian and Queensland Governments, in close partnership with the Australian Government and cruise industry. Cruise industry and passengers must also consider domestic onshore restrictions that apply locally and any guidance from a cruise operator
NSW advice for the cruise industry provides additional COVID-19 risk mitigation measures specific to NSW for all cruise vessels intending to enter or leave a NSW port.
