Bailiwick of Guernsey unable to accept cruise ships in 2021 due to ongoing COVID-19 pandemic

Due to the ongoing uncertainty and our priority to protect the health and safety of Bailiwick of Guernsey residents, and visitors to the island, the Committee for Economic Development has unfortunately had to make the decision that Guernsey will not be in a position to accept cruise ship visits for the 2021 season.

03 March 2021

Deputy Neil Inder, President of the Committee for Economic Development, said

 "The cruise sector is very important to the Bailiwick of Guernsey and to our tourism industry, and this is not a decision that the Committee has taken lightly. But following consultation with Public Health, and due to the extensive operational and logistical requirements and plans necessary to ensure a safe experience for passengers, crew and residents we have taken the proactive decision to cancel the cruise programme for this year and to focus our efforts on the 2022 cruise programme. 

We would like to thank the cruise industry for their understanding and support, and we look forward to working with them towards a successful and safe 2022 season."
