Norway to Limit Capacity on Cruise Ships After Covid Outbreaks

Norway is banning cruise vessels that sail along coastlines, if they have more than 200 passengers.

The government said it’s enforcing the decision in response to the Covid-19 pandemic. Ships won’t be allowed to sail with more than 50% their full capacity, or a maximum of 200 people, according to a statement on Friday.

The rule is effective until Nov. 1, and follows an outbreak on a vessel operated by Hurtigruten Group AS.
