An update on October sailings
Based on the recent CLIA extension of the voluntary suspension of sailings through October 31st, 2020, Virgin Voyages' first four sailings have been impacted. While it only affects a few sailings, Virgin Voyages understand how disappointing this is to you and your Sailors, and want to work with you to provide the best cancellation options out there.
We understand that while this update only impacts a few sailings, this is disappointing news to those of you who were so excited to set sail. We were, too. But Virgin Voyages are committed to doing what’s best for their Sailors, and will only head out to sea when they believe the time is right.
The Virgin Voyages Crew is continuing to keep an eye on developments related to this extension and various other travel restrictions. Over the next few weeks, they will be working on any impact this may have to any upcoming sailing season, and will be sure to share any updates with all Sailors and First Mates.
Please rest assured that the safety and security of the Crew and Sailors is Virgin Voyages number one priority. With that in mind, they have implemented enhanced health measures across the entire voyage process, and will continue to add to all policies and procedures as the science around them evolves. You can check out the full Voyage Well plan, here.
As always, Sailors and First Mates remain our top priority and are so, so grateful for your continued love and support for Virgin Voyages. We can’t wait to finally get out on the water with you.
(It will be oh-so worth it)
"As our most important partners, we wanted to update you first about our recent decision to postpone our sailings through October 15th, 2020 — which your Sailors will be notified about on Thursday, May 21. We’ve been working hard to find a way to set sail by August, but that hasn’t turned out to be possible".
Virgin Voyages understand that people have concerns about the Coronavirus. Rest assured, the safety, security, and comfort of all Sailors and Crew are Virgin Voyages top priority. Virgin Voyages are implementing proactive safety measures as detailed below, including enhanced health screenings prior to embarkation for all ship visits and voyages.
