I can’t believe that we have now published our 300th Issue of Leader-SHIP primarily focused on the impacts the pandemic has had on the global cruise industry and its slow but steady recovery. Over 4,355 articles have been published in the Leader-SHIP since its conception in February 2020. What started as a News update for our colleagues on what this new evolving virus was doing and how it impacted the cruise industry, Low and Behold became a labour of love, on a daily basis, as I researched various News sites and cruise companies’ websites seeking information so that I could update You, the readership.
I enjoyed the experience very, very much. Delivering the News was always organic and largely dictated by changes in cruise companies' restart of operations. It is amazing to me where we were last year and where we are today. ‘Restarting’ is happening and I know from Q&A with folks in the cruise industry we are in a good win-win situation: companies are meeting public health expectations through their protocols, and travelers, You, get a ‘kick’ out of knowing the precautions that are the reality of onboard cruise line public health.
So, with our 300th Issue, it’s now time to say farewell as the cruise industry gets back into business. Of all the things I wanted to do, I did through Leader-SHIP and with You. I want to thank You, the readership, for your support and feedback over the past 18 months. It has been an honor.
Stay safe, and remember to “Educate, Motivate and get Vaccinated!”

Canada's $4-billion cruise ship industry is a key part of the country's domestic tourism sector. It employs roughly 30,000 people, both directly and indirectly, and brings about two million travellers to Canada a year. In 2019, more than 140 cruise ships stopped at a Canadian port.
There is strong evidence that public health investments contribute to improved community health, societal benefit, and reduced health care costs. Investments in public health have been shown time and time again to pay for themselves several-fold, saving money by preventing injury and illness.
Abstract: Based on the discussion of COVID-19 on cruise ships，risk management factors of cruise ship diseases were proposed，which include the port country's epidemic prevention capacity, the mode of disease transmission, the relevant regulations on international public health disposal, the design and construction of cruise ships, the medical and health conditions on cruise ships, and the characteristics of cruise tourism activities.
