Which precautions can I take myself?
  • Check your health insurance to see if you are covered when abroad in case that you need medical care.
  • Purchase additional health or traveler’s insurance if possible before the start of your trip.
  • Monitor the World Health Organization’s website and your own country’s precautions.
  • Check your itinerary to see if any restrictions on your journey to your destination have been put in place.
  • Bring extra personal medication (if applicable).
  • Follow the recommended health + safety recommendations regarding hygiene, handwashing and wipe surfaces on site and while traveling as an extra precaution.
  • If you want or need to cancel your plans, check your traveler’s / cancellation insurance to see if it covers your reason for cancellation.
What happens if a (fellow) guest on board is sick?

In this case we will immediately ask them to avoid any contact with other guests. We will also immediately contact the local health authority to assist the guest. Tour leaders and crew are trained first aiders. Our ships are permanently located in areas with direct access to high-quality medical care.

What happens if a crew member on board becomes ill?

We will carefully monitor the health of crew members and tour leaders. If a crew member or tour leader shows any signs of being unwell with symptoms associated with the Coronavirus (fever, cough, shortness of breath), then we will immediately replace the person. Tour leaders and crew are trained first aiders.

Will you take extra safety + hygiene measures during the tours?

We have already instructed all ship operators, tour leaders and suppliers to take additional safety measures regarding hygiene, disinfection and general health on board including (among other things):

  • Strict performance of standard hygiene procedures on board
  • Additional disinfection measures performed on a continuous basis during the tours
  • Obligatory disinfection of the hands for crew and guest (minimally before entering the ship and before and after every meal)
  • Avoidance of physical contact (including shaking hands) during the tour
  • Additional cleaning protocols
  • All meals individually served (no buffets)
  • Special instructions in health + safety guidelines onboard will be given to all our guests on the first day of the tour.
  • We will carefully observe and act in compliance with all instructions given by the Dutch or (in other countries) other national Government and Health Authorities.
