Ahoy!

The cruise industry has faced a challenging few months, with lines facing immense media scrutiny during the coronavirus crisis. They have been working tirelessly to get passengers and crew home, refund money and cruise credits to customers, while also trying to work towards a plan where we will be able to sail safely in the future. But don’t be disheartened – cruise will be back, bigger and better than ever. This edition of Cruise&Travel Asia is about telling you what the new age of cruise will look like. Nothing lasts forever – the travel industry has overcome SARS, MERS, Ebola, 9/11 and much more. The modern-day Asian is a resilient traveller. They are tough, intrepid and willing to try new things. So where are Asians planning their next cruises? Already many are booking up for 2021, including Japan, Alaska and the Mediterranean. Of course, short cruises are still popular close to home. Smooth sailing (from your couch)! Bernadette Chua Editor, Cruise & Travel Asia
