Cruise ships will not be allowed to dock from tomorrow
Both the Diario and FN report that the Regional Government will take more restrictive measures to contain what is now officially termed the coronavirus “pandemic” with immediate effect, starting tomorrow. By the end of the month, 21 ships were scheduled for the capital of Madeira – in the next few days, the MeinShciff Herz, Marella Celebration and Hamburg stopovers were scheduled.
After appearing quite “laid back” in the coronavirus, the Regional Government have moved out of the blue to enact a ban on cruise ships docking and increase control measures at the airport.
The Regional Government explains that the Port of Funchal will not receive visiting cruise ships to avoid quarantine situations that have already occurred in other places.
In addition, what is termed “control measures” will also be adopted at the airport on arrival.
