Traveling & Staying Healthy

A Safer Way To Cruise And Travel — Updated June 16, 2021

COVID-19 Guest Protocols

Additional Steps We are Taking to Enhance Public Health

Enhanced Environmental Sanitization

Public areas and staterooms will be thoroughly and more frequently cleaned using a safe disinfectant proven to kill coronaviruses.

Medical Care

Our highly-trained medical staff includes doctors and nurses capable of caring for a broad range of medical conditions, including dealing with COVID-19 patients. Medical centers will be equipped with COVID appropriate testing and treatment capabilities. All team members will be required to wear Seabourn-approved face masks.

Ventilation

Ships will feature enhanced air filtration with upgraded HVAC systems. These systems will be designed to replace air within public spaces and staterooms every five to six minutes. HEPA filters will be used in key areas, such as medical centers and dedicated isolation rooms, as a further safeguard.

Stay Healthy While Cruising

Here are these healthy travel habits recommended by the World Health Organization and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control — be sure to practice them on your next Seabourn cruise!
