The cruise liner ‘Explorer of the Seas’ visited Gibraltar yesterday to undertake a technical call alongside the Western Arm in the North Mole.

Another cruise liner ‘Jewel of the Seas’ arrives this morning also to carry out a technical call alongside.

In line with the Government of Gibraltar’s decision to suspend cruise liner visits to Gibraltar during the current Covid-19 crisis, the Government pointed out that these are not a cruise calls.

The vessels do not have any passengers on board berth exclusively to take bunkers, lubrication oils, fresh water, stores and provisions.

No crew members are allowed to disembark from the vessels and no attendance on board the vessels from shore based staff are permitted during their short stays in Gibraltar.
