Japan to Reopen to Cruise Ships After 2 1/2-year Ban

Following a general reopening for tourists in OCT, Japan will begin allowing international cruise calls for the first time since MAR 2020, said the country’sTransport and Tourism Minister on 15NOV.

Exact schedules for cruise ship arrivals have not been announced, although in a statement to Seatrade Cruise News last week, Princess Cruises expressed optimism that its continued discussions with Japanese authorities would allow it to return in MAR 2023, and other cruise lines have maintained Japanese ports of call in their itineraries in Q1 in the hope that the country would open to cruise ships.
