As was announced in a recent Press Conference, the cruise ship Viking Sun is in the Bay this morning in order to disembark seven passengers and 1 crewman, all of whom are of Canadian nationality. The disembarkation will take place in the Bay, not alongside the Cruise Terminal.

This follows a request from the Canadian High Commissioner in London who requested Gibraltar's help in repatriating the eight Canadians who will catch today's BA flight from Gibraltar to London where they will connect with flights home to Canada

There are no cases of Covid-19 on board the Viking Star and the ship has submitted a clear maritime declaration, therefore she is clear to enter the Port.
