They're trying to. There's already a ban on cruise ships over 96'000 tonnes but now they want to ban all cruise ships from sailing down the Giudecca Canal to the San Marco Basin. Their transport minister wants to have a wide, deep channel dredged on the other side of Giudecca between La Grazia & San Clemente and having them all moor off Tronchetto by MSC's terminal.

MSC's Opera crashed into the canal wall in June.

Sorry this isn't very good but gives an indication of what is actual and what is proposed. The red is visiting cruise ships, charcoal MSC and the green is what they're after.

You’ve got to wonder if the level of corruption in Italian politics is linked to the delay in deciding things.
