BERLIN — In an announcement on Thursday, TUI Cruises said that it will begin operating cruises in Greece seas again during the summer season, after a long hiatus, with the first cruise ship setting sail from Crete on Friday with roughly 1,000 passengers on board.

The "Mein Schiff 5" will set sail from Heraklion port at 9:00 in the morning on Friday for a week-long cruise stopping at Rhodes, Piraeus and Souda, Crete.

"We have waited a long time for this moment. The ship 'Mein Schiff 5' is departing tomorrow for its first voyage of the current season. It is a moving moment, both for visitors and crew," said Wybke Meier, CEO of TUI Cruises.

"We are certain that all passengers will once again enjoy the unique Greek destinations and we are very happy that we supported the process for the resumption of cruises," said Tourism Minister Haris Theoharis.


TOKYO — Japan will open its borders to foreign tourists in June for the first time since imposing tight pandemic travel restrictions about two years ago, but only for package tours for now, the prime minister said Thursday.
