Amid the coronavirus pandemic along with the vaccination phase, the cruise major, Carnival Corporation turned its Savona cruise terminal into a COVID-19 vaccination site.
In fact, the Italian cruise terminal will first serve as a vaccination site for people over the age of 80, as part of the Silver Vaccine Day campaign in the region.
For the record, the terminal has the capacity to vaccinate about 600 people per day on the ground floor of the terminal.
As Costa Cruises further explained, the site will serve as a vaccination center for other phases of the program that takes place in Italy.
In fact, this will not influence any regularly scheduled cruises, since it will be used from Tuesday to Friday, allowing the cruises to operate normally if necessary.
Following the COVID-19 pandemic, Costa Cruises informed that is working with national and local authorities of the countries included in the itineraries of its ships outside Italy, in an effort to define the details of the restart of cruise operations, with enhanced health and safety measures through the implementation of the Costa Safety Protocol.
