We are aware of the latest travel advisories issued by government agencies and are monitoring all updates issued by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).
We have always employed stringent safety and sanitation protocols on each and every one of our ships, and we will continue to do so (with special measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19). We follow the recommendations from CLIA for onboarding procedures, requiring all persons boarding the ship (including guests, crew, service providers, local guides) to complete a questionnaire before entering.

- All air-conditioning filters are cleaned and disinfected on each embarkation day before rooming takes place.
- Crew washes hands frequently when handling guest luggage. Disembarkation luggage is kept separate from embarkation luggage to avoid cross-contamination.
- All buses and private transfer vehicles are cleaned and wiped with disinfectant before each use.
- All staterooms are thoroughly cleaned on a daily basis.
- All guests and crew are required to sanitize their hands when coming back onboard the ship each day, when entering public spaces and before all meals.
- Guests receive questionnaire on the transfer from the airport, or at the gangway security point if no transfer is provided.
- Crew receives this questionnaire a few days before traveling.
- All others receive this questionnaire at the gangway security point.
- Boarding will be denied for all external people without a completed questionnaire.
- The onboard Hotel Manager will be informed if anybody answers a question with a “yes” and a follow-up temperature screening will be conducted. Any individual with a temperature detected at or above 100.4° F / 38° C will receive secondary screening to include a medical assessment and the final decision of whether or not they will be allowed onboard will be at the full discretion of the Captain and Hotel Manager.
