Staying Safe Before You Travel

Staying safe before you travel

Our first voyage of the season recently wrapped up, and we are extremely grateful that everything went smoothly. We are beyond thrilled to have been able to provide the kind of Antarctic experience we are proud of. While things look a little different this season, we believe that everyone on our team has done a wonderful job at implementing and adhering to all the new protocols.

We have also learned some things on this inaugural voyage that will help us all travel even more safely. The one thing that stood out to us is that all instances of onboard positive cases aboard other ships originated before departure, not on the ships themselves.

Here are some tips that everyone can do before arriving at the ship to ensure that each and every passenger makes it safely aboard and remains healthy so everyone can experience the trip of a lifetime to Antarctica.

We can summarize what you can do in two words: BE VIGILANT.

We recommend that 10 days prior to your departure, do your very best to be vigilant by:

  • Avoiding crowds
  • Practicing good masking
  • Keeping a social distance in public areas
  • Washing your hands thoroughly and using hand sanitizer often
  • Using sanitizer wipes to clean as you travel
  • Getting a vaccine booster if eligible

Our President and CEO recently traveled to the Seaventure and recorded this short, off-the-cuff video about his personal experiences with traveling to the ship. If you are nervous about the in-transit experience, this may provide reassurance for you.

Together we can collectively keep the ship virus free and experience the Antarctic adventure the way we should. We recommend that if you are traveling with us this season that you familiarize yourself and your travel partners with our 21-22 Season Arrival Protocols and S.H.I.E.L.D program.
