Cruise line laments COVID-19 induced losses, considers leaving Taiwan market.

The COVID-19 task force said on Wednesday (Dec. 1) that Taiwan is considering partially restarting cruise travel after warnings from cruise operators that they might have to leave the market due to prolonged losses if no reopening occurs.

Health Minister and Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) head Chen Shih-chung (陳時中) noted in a briefing that given Taiwan's relatively safe in terms of COVID transmission risk, domestic island-hopping itineraries and port visits are likely to be allowed. Plans are being reviewed, he added.

The health minister was responding to calls for the resumption of cruises, as companies are struggling because such trips have been halted since May, when Taiwan experienced a surge in local infections.
