PHUKET:-- Phuket Marine Office Director Wiwat Chitchertwong remains confident that the move by major cruise liner operators to cancel or redirect their cruises out of Asia amid fears of the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) spreading will not greatly affect Phuket.

 

The news follows the cruise liner Celebrity Constellation cancelling its scheduled stops in Phuket this past week.

 

The Celebrity Constellation, carrying some 2,449 passengers and a crew and ship staff of 1,000 on each visit, was to port in Phuket from 12:30pm to 9pm last Friday (Feb 14) and from 7am to 9pm on Tuesday (Feb 18).

It’s called “sarcasm”, something that you maybe did not understand. It’s what we are all thinking .... this PR is dillusional.

Although every penny counts I’ve watched passengers off ships visit Phuket, they are hardly big spenders!
