Coronavirus guidance on domestic cruise ship travel

What does this involve?

The Scottish Government has published guidance for operators of domestic cruise ships and their passengers to help them operate safely during the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. This forms part of the government’s general advice on travel and transport.

This guidance is based on protocols developed by the UK Chamber of Shipping and includes separate information for cruise ship operators, seafarers and passengers. Each set of guidance is available to download as an individual PDF file.
