The emergency risk associated with the spread of COVID-19 syndrome and the governmental measures for its containment have led to particular legal consequences on the regular execution of the carriage of passengers by sea, also from the point of view of protecting the passenger’s legal-patrimonial position. This study carries out a comparative investigation of the provisions of art. 88-bis of the law decree March 17, 2020, n. 18, from which significant differences emerge with respect to the european rules and to the code provisions that would have been ordinarily applicable. This scientific paper aims to examine how government measures relating to the management of the health emergency affect the contract, the protection of passengers’ rights and the carrier liability regime.
