Portsmouth International Port has reopened this week in line with step 3 of the government roadmap. The return follows major preparation plans to keep up to date with new health protocols and logistical challenges, ensuring that the port is ready to welcome passengers back safely. The completion of the cruise berth extension has resulted in investments from major lines, with bookings from Viking Cruises, Virgin Voyages and Noble Caledonia contributing to a busy summer of scenic UK sailings.
Travelling by sea is considered one of the safest ways to get abroad this year, with open spaces and fresh sea air aplenty on Brittany Ferries’ routes to France and Spain, and Condor Ferries to the Channel Islands.
Passengers travelling through Portsmouth can expect the latest technology including a non-intrusive temperature scanner, contactless touch points and frequent sanitation using the most effective cleaning equipment.
