‘Essential travel’ meaning does vary by country of entry. For more information and local government advice, please see the links above or our FAQs here.

You can be secure that we have taken every precaution advised by the World Health Organisation to minimise the spread of Coronavirus / COVID-19 to protect the health of those travelling.

Our onboard and shore based crews are subject to strict hygiene measures, hand sanitizers are available everywhere for use and additional touch point cleaning is being undertaken.

Due to the limited number of passengers onboard our services, we have plenty of space to ensure guidance on social distancing can happen. Our outside decks are also open for use.

We are committed to the safety and welfare of those undertaking essential travel and our crews and we will continue to do so during this difficult period.

We thank you for your understanding and continued support.

Sincerely
Kasper Moos, VP & Head of Passenger
