      游輪航行未獲批,嘉年華復工屢屢碰壁

      嘉年華的游輪能否復工,最終決定權歸屬意大利。

      面對疫情下的旅游業頹勢,嘉年華公司(Carnival Corp.)力圖盡快復航,招徠顧客乘坐游輪。然而事與愿違,嘉年華屢屢碰壁。

      作為全世界最大的游輪公司,嘉年華身陷窘境。由于意大利政府并未通過游輪的航行審批,公司已經取消了旗下AIDA航線三艘游輪中兩艘的航程。

      在本周一的發布會中,嘉年華表示:“到目前為止,意大利還是沒有批準2020年8月5日之后的短程航行,這和我們先前的預期完全相悖。所以很遺憾,我們被迫取消了AIDAperla和AIDAmar兩艘游輪2020年8月5日至12日的原定行程?!?/p>

      嘉年華的無奈之舉也反映出了當下全球的復雜困局。其實,不僅是嘉年華要應對此次困局,其最大的競爭對手皇家加勒比游輪公司(Royal Caribbean Group)、挪威游輪公司(Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings)也都要在疫情肆虐下,設法恢復游輪服務。雖然嘉年華的企業總部設在美國邁阿密、公司注冊地在巴拿馬、AIDA航線的營業部設在德國羅斯托克,但預備本月啟航的三艘AIDA游輪卻均在意大利注冊,船上要插意大利國旗。因此,游輪能否復工,最終決定權歸屬意大利。

      不過,截至目前,嘉年華還未取消第三艘AIDA游輪的本月航程。根據計劃,此船將在8月16日啟航。對此,嘉年華在發布會中仍表示期待:“我們認為,這艘游輪可以在啟航日期前獲得船旗國意大利批準?!?/p>

      雖然嘉年華對未來持積極態度,但兩艘AIDA游輪遭遇行程取消可不是什么復工“吉兆”。鑒于新冠疫情對旅游業的沉重打擊,游輪業務未必能在今年夏季順利重啟。而且,自今年3月以來,嘉年華不僅游船業務長期關停,還身負諸多法律訴訟,被指控對游輪內的疫情爆發處理不力。如此看來,未來仍不樂觀。

      目前,嘉年華與其競品公司仍試圖說服消費者和各國政府,辯稱游輪復工可以保證安全。然而這場論辯的勝利希望十分渺?!显?,美國疾控中心將“禁航令”二次延長至9月30日,禁止游船公司在此期間恢復客運服務。

      無論游輪業何時復工,其行業規模都必將大幅萎縮。今年3、4、5月內,嘉年華虧損達44億美金。上周,它更是“壯士斷腕”,出售了旗下104艘游輪(數據截至2019年末)的其中兩艘。嘉年華還宣稱,將于今年出售或報廢旗下15艘游輪,先前訂購的游輪訂單也將推遲交付。(財富中文網)

      Carnival Corp.'s efforts to woo passengers back to its cruise ships have hit another snag.

      The world's largest cruise company canceled two of the three cruises planned for its AIDA line this month, after failing to get regulatory approval from the Italian government to set sail.

      "Contrary to our expectations, the final formal approval for the start of the short trips from August 5, 2020 by our flag state Italy is still pending," Carnival said in a press release Monday. "Unfortunately, we therefore have to cancel the planned short trips with AIDAperla and AIDAmar with departure dates between August 5 and 12, 2020."

      The announcement demonstrates the complicated and global regulatory landscape that Carnival and its largest competitors, Royal Caribbean Group and Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings, must navigate in order to restart cruising while the pandemic still rages. Carnival, which keeps its corporate headquarters in Miami but its place of incorporation in Panama, operates its AIDA brand out of Rostock, Germany. But the three AIDA ships that it planned to start sailing again this month are "flagged" or registered out of Italy, meaning that country has the final say on whether or not the ships can bring customers back aboard.

      Carnival has not yet canceled its third planned AIDA cruise this month, which is supposed to set sail on August 16. "We assume that we will receive the last formal approval by the flag state Italy in a timely manner," the company said in its release.

      But the cancellations of the first two AIDA trips do not bode well for Carnival's plans to get its ships back in operation this summer, as it fights to recover from the sweeping effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on its industry. The coronavirus effectively shut down cruising in March and has since launched dozens of lawsuits over how Carnival handled COVID-19 outbreaks on its ships early this year.

      Now Carnival and its competitors are trying to convince both passengers and international government officials that it's safe to resume cruising—with limited and apparently diminishing success. Last month, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention extended its "no sail" order for a second time, barring ships from resuming passenger operations in U.S. waters until at least September 30.

      Whenever cruising does resume, it will be a much smaller industry. Carnival, which reported a $4.4 billion loss for the three months ended May 31, last week also said it was getting rid of two more cruise ships from a fleet that numbered 104 at the end of 2019. So far Carnival has announced plans to sell or scrap 15 of its ships this year, and is delaying the delivery of new ships it had previously ordered.
