Set Sail Safely

Updated: March 6, 2020


We understand that people have concerns about the Coronavirus. Rest assured, the safety, security, and comfort of all our Sailors and Crew are our top priority. We are implementing proactive safety measures as detailed below, including enhanced health screenings prior to embarkation for all ship visits and voyages.


CORONAVIRUS HEALTH SCREENING PROTOCOLS

We have and continue to closely monitor worldwide developments regarding the Coronavirus. Our main focus is protecting the health and safety of our Sailors and Crew. 

Following the guidance from Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO), International Maritime Organization (IMO) and other global public health authorities, we are implementing several measures to protect everyone who sets foot on our ship. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. 

Our prevention measures include the following restrictions, as well as an expansion of the medical boarding questionnaire to include the recommendations of the Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) and our Flag State Authority:
 
  • Deny boarding to all persons who have traveled from or transited via airports in South Korea, Iran, Italy, and China, including Hong Kong and Macau 21 days prior to embarkation.
  • Conduct illness screening for all persons who have traveled from, visited or transited via airports in any destinations listed on the U.S. CDC “Coronavirus Disease 2019 Information for Travel” page within 14 days before embarkation. Illness screening includes symptom history checks for fever, cough, and difficulty breathing in the 14 days before embarkation and taking of temperature.
  • Deny boarding to all persons who, within 14 days prior to embarkation, have had contact with, or helped care for, anyone suspected or diagnosed as having COVID-19, or who are currently subject to health monitoring for possible exposure to COVID-19.
  • Conduct pre-boarding screening necessary to effectuate these prevention measures. Enhanced screening and initial medical support are to be provided, as needed, to any persons exhibiting symptoms of suspected COVID-19.

These prevention measures will be applied regardless of the person’s nationality. 


These precautionary safety measures will remain in effect until further notice. We will continue to monitor the current situation and will update these protocols as needed with information we receive from local health authorities, the CDC, WHO and IMO.
