HEALTH & SAFETY PROTOCOLS

The cruise line has been working hard with other UK cruise lines, CLIA and Public Health England to establish its approach, as well as reviewing the EU ‘Healthy Gateways’ guidelines to ensure that the best protocols are put into place before sailing resumes.

The Safe Sailing Charter has been developed to advise customers in all the ways which Fred. Olsen is keeping guests safe and will be continually reviewed and updated as the situation evolves over the coming months. Initially, just some of the ways which Fred. Olsen has developed its Safe Sailing Charter includes a dedicated sanitation team frequently cleaning with anti-viral solutions; development of agreed and comprehensive processes to treat guests with symptoms on-board; pre-approved tour partners and small groups; and additional port options.

ENHANCED SAFETY MEASURES INCLUDE:

  • The highest cleanliness standards – this involves a dedicated sanitation team who work throughout the day and night ensuring all surfaces in all areas are frequently cleaned with anti-viral solutions. They ensure these protocols are strictly followed with regular auditing using UV and swab testing carried out by our Sanitation Officer.
  • Specialist medical facilities on board - managed by teams of Doctors and Nurses. They are working with Public Health England, the CLIA Medical Action Group and other UK cruise lines to develop agreed and comprehensive processes for how they isolate and treat any guests with symptoms either on board or at the destination.
  • Additional port options – they will continue to follow the latest advice and guidance from the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office on which ports they visit when they start sailing again. If government advice changes about one of their planned ports of call during a cruise, their smaller ships have more options for alternative ports, which allow them to change course more easily.
  • Pre-approved tour partners and smaller groups - only sell shore tours from pre-approved partners in the country they are visiting and where they are confident they will uphold the standards required locally.

Once again you have come up trumps. The phone is always answered with a cheery voice and booking is a pleasure. What a difference it makes to talk to real live human being. We have got exactly what we wanted and you are always there if we have any queries. We did actually have a minor hiccough which was instantly sorted. Brilliant service.
