Pre-Cruise

  • Your luggage handles will be sanitized before delivery to your stateroom.

On Board

  • Protocols continue to change; however, at this time, guests are required to wear face coverings when moving through public spaces.
  • We will have ample hand sanitizers available throughout the ship and their frequent use is required by all guests and crew.

  • We use state-of-the-art fan coil air conditioning units; there is no recirculating of air on board our ships.
  • There will be limitations to the number of guests allowed to sail with us.
  • Safety and social distancing will be enhanced throughout our dining room.
  • You will still get plenty of fresh air and exercise as our bicycles, fitness mats and equipment will be thoroughly sanitized after each use. Use of the Fitness Room is by appointment with cleaning time between use. Throughout Europe and Asia, we provide a variety of onboard wellness activities led by professionally trained Wellness Hosts. Whenever weather permits, these small-group classes will be held on our spacious open-air Sun Decks.
  • Non-essential visitors are not permitted on board.
