Will the big cruises from Israel be canceled?
The Ministry of Health has not yet approved the requirements of the shipping companies • The Royal Caribbean ship is already making its way to Israel
The Royal Caribbean cruise that is due to leave Israel
Many Israelis have already booked tickets for the pampering cruises of the shipping giants that are expected to sail from Israel in less than two months, but an inspection by Israel today shows that although the ships are on their way to Israel, the Ministry of Health has not yet approved the cruises.
The largest company that is scheduled to sail from Israel as early as June is Royal Caribbean.
Some of the teams that will arrive in Israel have not yet been vaccinated, although the companies have promised that the teams will be completely vaccinated.
The Ministry of Health has not yet approved all the requirements of the shipping company and among them, descent to beaches and tours in the various countries in Europe.
Some of the requirements of the shipping companies are not acceptable to the Ministry of Health and the chances of them being approved are very low, which can lead to a change in the way the cruises operate, or in extreme cases also to cancellations, which is less likely to happen at the moment.
Companies that market the cruises are reporting very high demand.
Prices range from $ 600-1,500 per passenger and ships should include huge pools, karting tracks, restaurants, cultural halls and more.
Sources close to the cruise companies report that contacts are underway with the Ministry of Health and confirm that final approval has not yet been received for the full operation of the cruises.
No official response has yet been received from the shipping companies.
