As we look forward to sailing again, rest assured the well-being of our guests and crew couldn’t be more important to us.

Our enhanced health and well-being measures will ensure that even though some aspects of your voyage may initially feel a little different, you can still enjoy the holiday you’ve dreamed of. Discover full details and FAQs on our health protocols.

We’re looking forward to welcoming you on board.
