Covid-19 Policy

Your health & safety is something we take very seriously at Swan Hellenic. We have been working closely with our world-leading health consultant, Vikand as well as following the advice from the World Health Organisation and The Cruise Lines International Association in relation to best practices and COVID-19 Protocols.

As you are aware, this is an ever-evolving situation. As it stands today our COVID-19 protocol is as follows:

  • We recommend all guests be fully vaccinated with an approved vaccine per their country of origin or as per the World Health Organisation recommendations.
  • All Guests are strongly recommended to undertake a PCR or antigen test on their own account before commencing their outbound journey.
  • You’ll also be asked to complete a short health questionnaire.
  • If requested by local or onboard medical authorities, guest must give consent for a COVID test to be performed prior to embarkation or while onboard the vessel. This will be administered and paid for by the cruise line and must produce a negative result.
  • Whilst on the cruise, given the configuration of the ship and the nature of expedition cruising, we will not require mask-wearing or social distancing unless requested to do so at the discretion of the Captain & Doctor.
  • Whilst undertaking expedition activities and shore excursions, we will adhere to the local rules in place at each port of call.
  • Should you test positive during your cruise, you will be quarantined to your stateroom. We will make every effort to ensure you are still able to experience as much of the cruise as possible.
  • All our crew is fully vaccinated for COVID-19.
