The successful return to shipping is the result of an extremely technical and judicious joint work by CLIA and the cruise industry to implement protocols created by doctors, scientists and specialists, putting the safety of guests, crew and cities first. visited ”, says Marco Ferraz, president of CLIA, Brazil.
