For this experience, our partners are taking extra measures to help prevent any potential spread of COVID-19. These measures include having sanitizing stations available to all guests - they will be placed around the vessel and dock facility.   Employees will be required to have their temperature checked before each shift and will be required to wear facemasks. For best practice, all surfaces will be thoroughly sanitized before and after every cruise. All employees have attended a food handler and COVID-19 class that has been offered by Servsafe prior to returning to work. Our partners have altered their food services on each cruise due to COVID-19. Every meal service will be available immediately when the guest boards the vessel. Your salad will be served to you at your table. Then you will be called to the buffet table, where one of the crew members, who will be wearing a mask and gloves, will serve you food from the buffet to ensure there is no contamination being passed on the food utensils. If you would like more food, you will be welcome to get more using this same process. Then your dessert will be served to you at your table. There will be no tableside drink service. Water will be pre-set at your table prior to your arrival. If you would like to purchase soft drinks, beer, wine, liquor, or specialty cocktails, you will need to obtain those from the bar. 

Additionally, our partners will be running at reduced capacity. They will offer reserved seating on every one of their cruises at an interior table. This will allow our partners to ensure every guest with a ticket has a table to sit at that ensures they can properly social distance. If guests choose to transit to the outside decks, sanitized deck chairs will be available in stacks at locations around the outside decks. Guests are allowed to choose a seat outside as well if they wish and will always have their reserved table to go to inside. Our partners will make every attempt to deliver your stated menu. Due to the expected nationwide food shortage, some items may be difficult to obtain. If an item is not available, our partners Executive Chef will prepare a substitute item. This will be a day by day process and they may not always be able to disclose their menu until shortly prior to each cruise. 

These Covid-19 safety measures are subject to change.
