Here's a quick read of some of today’s coronavirus-recovery cruise news. This is being updated throughout the day.

CroisiEurope restarts Andalusia/Algarve cruises

CroisiEurope is restarting operations in Spain's Andalusia and Portugal's Algarve this month after a year and a half of inactivity there due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

La Belle de Cadix will operate the 'Charms of Andalusia and Algarve' itinerary, navigating the Guadalquivir and Guadiana. The eight-day cruise sails round-trip Seville and visits Córdoba, Granada, Cádiz, Alcoutim, Vila Real, Puerto de Santa María and Minimum Island.

La Belle de Cadix will also operate two five-day cruises from Seville to Cádiz and Puerto de Santa María early December and six-day Christmas and New Year's Eve cruises from Seville to Cádiz, Puerto de Santa María, Jerez and Córdoba.

The 176-passenger La Belle de Cadix can navigate both on the river and the sea, and part of the journey from Seville to Cádiz operates on the Mediterranean Sea.
