Keen to cruise for Christmas? Here’s why you should try Easter instead.

Federal Health Minister Greg Hunt has signalled international cruises could return to Australian waters by Christmas, but the industry is struggling to keep up with the changing conditions.

Mr Hunt said health authorities are closely looking at removing the public health order prohibition on cruises.

Cruise Lines International Association managing director Joel Katz told Deborah Knight the running of cruise ships is too complex for short turnarounds, and operators need certainty.

“The announcement is very encouraging … but I think the reality is we’re probably not going to see cruises in Australia before Christmas.

“We would be very happy if we saw some cruises resume by Easter.

“The cruise lines have been progressively cancelling cruises as they get closer to the sailing date; it’s important that they can give confidence to their guests that they can plan their summer holidays.”
