2nd October 2020 - Press Release

Port of Dover welcomes industry framework for COVID-safe cruising



Following several months helping cruise lines find a home in Dover for ships needing lay-by facilities, the UK's second busiest cruise port is pleased that a framework has been developed so that Dover can prepare to become a popular home for COVID-safe cruising.

Sonia Limbrick, Head of Cruise, Port of Dover, said: “The Port has already implemented robust COVID-safe processes with its ferry partners to ensure continued safe travel from Dover.  Now we look forward to doing the same with our cruise partners. 

“We have spent many months looking after cruise ships and their crew, but we have greatly missed the buzz and excitement of thousands of cruise guests arriving at Dover to enjoy our award-winning service.

“In order to do so once again, the safety of our guests, ships crew and our staff will be our top priority so that cruising can start once again with confidence when the time is right.”

The Port will continue to work with the UK Chamber of Shipping, Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA), Cruise Britain, cruise partners and the many cruise lines that choose Dover to ensure that the framework is properly implemented in line with Government guidelines.
