Latest: Coronavirus in Spain figures (2 June)
International cruise ships will be able to dock again in Spanish ports from 7 June, the Spanish government said on Saturday, lifting a ban that was imposed when the Covid-19 pandemic began.
The measure will be lifted due to the easing of the virus in Europe where most cruise passengers come from, as well as rising vaccination numbers, a transport ministry statement said.
It was also due to the falling numbers of virus cases in regions where most cruise ships dock.
The ban was first imposed in mid-March 2020 during the first State of Alarm in Spain, and later took the form of a resolution which was published on 23 June by Spain’s Directorate General of Shipping (DGMM).
