State-based cruising ‘a great idea’ to support ‘decimated’ industry
Peter Psaltis says he’s keen to get cruising after promising statements from the Premier yesterday.
Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk yesterday flagged the possibility of allowing small, state-based holidays up and down the coast for fully-vaccinated Queenslanders.
She says the proposal is still a few months off, but the state government will work with the industry on a plan to be taken to National Cabinet.
“I think this is a great idea!” Peter said.
“The $177 million Brisbane international cruise terminal has sat empty since its opening in October 2020, as COVID-19 decimated the sector.
“I’ve spoken to people from the cruise industry and they say they are ready to go in a restricted capacity.”
