The cruise line business globally may have been devastated by the ongoing pandemic - but Cobh in Cork Harbour, hopes to start welcomming back the ships from early next year.

The local Chamber of Commerce believes the ocean-going giants will be sailing again, and calling to Cork Harbour, from March of 2022.

The Chamber is planning an expert-led, special workshop for local businesses, pubs, restaurants, cafes and retailers, to help them prepare for the resumption of cruises.

In a call out to local business-owners, Cobh & Harbour Chamber of Commerce has said that even as international travel remains largely shut-down, now is the time to start planning for the Spring and Summer of 2022.

"Cobh has massive potential for business and trade from visitors disembarking from cruise liners," says the Chamber.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.
