Latest information for ocean cruise guests

For cruise departures in 2021

Having reviewed the government’s latest advice, we are going to continue to take all necessary steps to prevent cases of COVID-19 onboard and provide our guests with the peace of mind they need to enjoy their cruise, knowing that their safety and wellbeing is at the forefront of our minds.

Whilst this means that the usual facilities such as swimming pools, gym, spa, salon, shop and launderette will be open, there are some procedures that will remain in place, including the restricting of visits ashore to organised shore excursions only with no individual exploration permitted.

The below FAQs include details of these procedures as well as essential information regarding overseas travel, including requirements for COVID-19 vaccination certificates, Passenger Locator Forms, and testing requirements when returning to the UK. Please read the information carefully as you may be required to take action prior to your departure date.
