Crystal River Cruises has announced its plans to resume river cruising in Europe beginning 29AUG 2021 are well underway. The cruise line said that it is cautiously optimistic about the recent news coming from the European Union allowing entry for vaccinated travellers.
The cruise line’s statement noted that its multi-country itineraries will rely on the adoption of these protocols by the individual European Union member states, as each state ultimately controls its own border.
“We are currently assessing our final ship deployment for Fall/Winter 2021 and will communicate further details when completed,” said Walter Littlejohn, Crystal River Cruises’ Senior Vice President & Managing Director. “We are readying the fleet as well as our devoted crew members in advance of resuming service to refresh their skills, ensuring the six-star standards for which our award-winning river ships are known.”
The cruise line said that its COVID-19 prevention measures include mandatory vaccination for guests and crew, COVID-19 testing at embarkation, suites set aside for isolation if needed, HEPA filters, and more. Crystal River Cruises also said that its protocols are under continual review based on scientific data and evolving recommendations from local and global authorities.
