COVID-19 Booking Assurance

The situation regarding COVID-19 & related travel issues is changing daily. We are doing our best to keep up with the many issues that surround our guest’s ability to travel & join our trips. We understand that this continues to be a concerning time for all & we want to be as flexible as possible for all our guests while still ensuring we are able to support our operation & crew during this incredibly difficult time.
