Sailing with confidence.

The future may be uncertain, but at Cunard we are doing everything we can to plan ahead. Read on to find out how Cunard is working on adapting for a new season, to fulfill our guest's vacation dreams, with safety as our constant priority.

“We have always taken pride in having the highest levels of health and safety. We are now reviewing every aspect of the Cunard experience and will only resume sailing when we have the approval and accreditation of enhanced health protocols from the most trusted and informed sources.”

- Cunard President, Simon Palethorpe

Through Carnival Corporation, the world’s largest cruise company, we are leading the conversation on COVID-19 and the ‘new normal’.

On 28 July 2020, in partnership with the World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC), Carnival Corporation undertook the Global Scientific Summit on COVID-19. This public virtual scientific summit, shared the latest scientific knowledge and evidence-based best practices related to prevention, detection, treatment and mitigation of COVID-19.

The joint summit featured global tourism leaders, WTTC Members, government agencies, destination partners, trade and private businesses sharing the very latest science and medical evidence that can be used to inform practical, adaptable and science-based solutions for mitigating and living with COVID-19

We are working directly with the highest level of authority to ensure we adopt best practices in the management of Covid-19.

The health and wellbeing of you, our guests, and our crew, partners and the communities we serve is of utmost importance. We are working directly with the relevant public health agencies at the highest level, as well as EU Healthy GateWays and CLIA, the governing body for the cruise industry. 

We will ensure that every aspect of a vacation with Cunard is reviewed.

We have for years had in place many of the protocols now considered advisable for other social gathering venues, such as hand-sanitizing stations and rigorous cleaning and disinfecting procedures. We also have for years gone beyond those protocols by asking guests to complete a health declaration form and having a comprehensive medical facility on board each ship providing 24/7 medical care and treatment.

As today’s advice evolves, whilst it’s too early to confirm what the exact implications for our ships’ operations and guest experience will be when we resume sailing, we will be reviewing every aspect of a vacation with Cunard. This will include looking at enhanced cleaning protocols, as well as measures such as screening guests before they board; implementing social distancing at levels right for the time we return, and working out how this will impact crew, guests, suppliers – and those at the ports we visit.

Embark on a journey unlike any other.
