The primary concern of CruiseMaine and all its member ports is for the health and safety of residents and visitors to our port communities. We also understand the economic repercussions to our state due to a severely disrupted tourism season caused by measures to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.
As the cruise industry makes necessary adjustments to public health information, market conditions and government policies, the situation remains fluid. We are continually in touch with industry partners including federal, state and local officials and will share updates as we have them.
As of today, we know that there will be no cruise ships visiting Maine until at least May 1, 2020. We expect to know more in the coming two to three weeks.
As a partnership between the Maine Office of Tourism, the Maine Department of Economic & Community Development, the Maine Department of Transportation, and the Maine Port Authority, CruiseMaine will continue to stay abreast of this evolving situation and will be in touch as we learn more.
