    Right now, only the three Japanese domestic cruise ships are calling on Japanese ports with only Japanese passengers.

    Japan’s strict COVID-19 immigration policy for non-Japanese makes cruising impossible for now. There are committee working to get things restarted, but I wouldn’t hold my breath. I’m heard rumors of a *possible* restart in the fall, but I think realistically we’re looking at 2022, I’m afraid.

    Many international cruise lines are redeploying ships away from Asia closer to the US which makes up 40%+ of cruise passenger market. So, who knows what the Japan cruise market will look like when the dust settles. There are still too many unknowns at this point.
