The Tide Is Turning

The Tide Is Turning

It certainly feels as if the tide is beginning to turn as we start emerging from lock-down and quarantine.  As schools open up and businesses resume some sense of “normality”, we’re seeing more enquiries coming through for travel post-Covid.  Although borders are not yet open, more people are starting to plan for when they are.

It’s reassuring to know that during this period of “down-time”, our cruise partners have actively been looking at their health and safety protocols and putting in place measures for when they can get moving again.  For example, Coral Expeditions has engaged a world-leading medical response specialist team to develop a detailed management strategy and operational plan to eliminate known risk points, exceed industry best practice and ensure they continue to provide safe voyages and give both crew and passengers the confidence to return when the time is right.

It’s refreshing to know that cruise companies around the world have taken stock of their procedures, found new ways of doing things and reviewed their operations from new and different perspectives.  When we do sail out of the harbour once more, we can be assured that health and safety aboard will never have been better.

So while the cruise companies are taking care of the operational side, we can start dreaming and planning our next adventure.  We’re seeing people firming up their bookings for 2021 as well as new enquiries who are looking forward to travelling again.

While we navigate the new world we’re stepping into and understanding the rules and regulations as we come out of lockdown, we’ll have a range of cruises and packages for you to take advantage of.  Because things are changing every day and we don’t know what next week will bring, let alone next month, if there is a destination or cruise you like the look of but isn’t featured on our website, just give us a call and we can get some information to you.  We work with a number of cruise operators and can book cruising holidays all over the world, so don’t hesitate to pick up the phone and have a chat with one of our team. 

When you’re ready to travel again, we will be here!
