The port of A Coruña will receive this Saturday the first cruise since the start of the health crisis due to the covid pandemic, in March 2020.
It will be the ‘Viking Sky’, from the Viking Ocean Cruises shipping company, which will arrive at the Trasatlánticos dock “complying with very restrictive safety and hygiene measures, higher than those that apply to any tourist arriving in the city by other means”, explains the Port Authority.
The 228-meter-long ship will arrive at around 12 noon with 250 passengers on board, below its maximum capacity, set at 930 tourists. Coming from Dublin, you will leave the city at 5:00 p.m. to depart for Porto.
All passengers, from the United Kingdom, the United States, Canada or Italy, as well as the 400 crew members, travel vaccinated with the complete regimen and have passed the covid test before boarding. As happens during the crossing and in the rest of the stopovers, bubbles of coexistence have been created and each one of them makes the exits with a guide.
The excursions that they carry out in the city, which in principle will be few, will be with the guide, maintaining the bubble group of the ship and with itineraries planned and closed in advance, in order to minimize contacts. In the event that they access a hospitality establishment, it would be with a prior reservation.
