Travel Alerts & The UnexpectedUpdates on unexpected situations that may affect your travel.


It’s hard to grasp how much our world has changed over the past few weeks. We find ourselves in challenging times as COVID-19 increasingly impacts our everyday lives. As a community of world travellers, the prospect of staying indoors, social distancing and pausing your travel plans is especially frustrating. We appreciate your understanding as we navigate through these challenging times together. We all believe in the power of travel; its potential to open borders, connect cultures and drive local economies. Let us not forget that during these days and beyond; we will all be better for it. We look forward to welcoming you back to the rivers very soon.

We appreciate your patience during this high call volume time. To better serve you, please feel free to email our support teams. In your email please provide the guests' last name, booking number and best contact phone number. For a new booking, please provide the date and itinerary that you are interested in booking.

We are closely monitoring the coronavirus (COVID-19) developments and will continue to prioritize the safety of our guests and crew. We are aware of the latest travel advisories issued by government agencies and are monitoring all updates issued by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Centres for Disease Control (CDC).

Precautionary Measures
We have always employed stringent safety and sanitation protocols on each and every one of our ships, and we will continue to do so (with special measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19). We follow the recommendations from CLIA for onboarding procedures, requiring all persons boarding the ship (including guests, crew, service providers, local guides) to complete a questionnaire before entering.
