cruise ships in japan back on track with covid safety measures

Sumary of Cruise ships in Japan back on track with COVID safety measures:

  • The cruise business in Japan is getting back on track as vessels gradually resume sailing with COVID-19 safety measures in place after numerous canceled trips due to the pandemic.
  • Major cruise ships Asuka II and Nippon Maru had operated a total of 21 trips by Monday, after restarting operations shortly before or after the government ended in September a coronavirus state of emergency that covered Tokyo and several other prefectures.
  • In early November, the 50,444-ton Asuka II with about 300 people onboard entered a port in Hitachinaka, Ibaraki Prefecture, becoming the first cruise ship to stop at the eastern Japan port in about two years.
  • “I haven’t been able to travel anywhere lately, but I joined this cruise because I heard it was going to sail nearby,” said a man in his 70s from Suzaka, Nagano Prefecture, who went on the trip with his wife.
  • Since resuming operations in October, the Asuka II has made several voyages including a trip from Yokohama, near Tokyo, to Nagasaki in the southwest, with an Asuka official saying that demand for such trips has increased.
  • The operator of Asuka II, which can hold about 870 passengers, only allows half of the ship’s capacity, while Nippon Maru also allows about 65 percent of its capacity of some 530 people.
