Cruise Lines International Association Australasia’s Cruise360, scheduled for Sydney on August 27, has been cancelled due to the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak in Sydney.

Sydney has been in lockdown since June 26 and there is no end in sight.

Current uncertainty

‘Current uncertainty around restrictions in Sydney is likely to continue and will prevent our industry from convening in person,’ association MD Joel Katz said.

Online forum

‘Despite the difficult circumstances, we are still focused on the critical issues affecting our industry and will bring our wider cruise community together in an online forum.’ Katz said.

He said several key elements of Cruise360 Australasia will be offered online on August 27, while the full conference programme will return at a future date.

Further details will be announced soon.

Ticket holders will be contacted directly and offered an automatic transfer to the future event or a refund.
