Although the opportunities to experience these events virtually has increased a lot, plenty of secure live experiences are still available. Event organisers closely follow regional guidelines and apply them to their arrangements, ensuring safety for all guests and participants.

As a passenger, it’s important to familiarise yourself with the shipping operator’s own corona guidelines as well as the more general instructions on cruise travel.
