Healthy Sailing

Along with Silversea, our top priority has always been to safeguard the health and safety of our guests, tour leaders and those in the countries we visit. With the current changing times that we are living in, there are some new protocols when travelling overseas that we need to be aware of.

Vaccinations for All

All embarking crew and guests must have been fully vaccinated prior to sail date in order to board the ship.
This is also a new policy, that we at Tours Direct are also following for all our overseas tours.
Most major airlines flying from  New Zealand, will also require that all passengers be fully vaccinated prior to being allowed to board the aircraft.

 

Testing for All

All crew and guests will be required to take a COVID-19 test prior to boarding. Only those who test negative will be permitted to board the ship. All guests will undergo pre-embarkation health screening including an enhanced health questionnaire and touchless temperature check.
Guests will also need to comply with local health regulations in the country of embarkation. These could include an additional COVID-19 test (PCR or other) that may be required to enter the country or port of departure.
At this stage, safety requirements for travel are evolving very rapidly. The latest information regarding safety regulations for your voyage will be communicated to you no later than 30 days prior to sailing.

 

Masks

All guests will be required to wear a mask in all indoor public areas, terminals and during shore excursions. Crew will be wearing masks at all times. Nevertheless, guests will not be required to wear masks while seated in restaurants, at tables in bars, and in outdoor areas in which physical distancing can be maintained.

 

 

Verified Shore Excursions

All itineraries have been revised to include only low-risk destinations with approved contingency plans. Guests wishing to go ashore in port will only be allowed to do so with a verified shore excursion party. These verified shore excursions ensure that all Silversea health and safety measures are met, including mandatory testing of all tour guides.

 

Physical Distancing

Thanks to the intimate size of the ships and the abundance of space, the ships can guarantee physical distancing with only minor reconfigurations to onboard public areas.
Our flexible embarkation procedure will be further relaxed by the implementation of staggered check-in times at various locations on the pier. This will ensure ample space for every guest to embark in comfort and safety.

 

Sanitation

Extensive cleaning and sanitation measures have been introduced to ensure the highest standards of cleanliness are met. These around the clock measures include constant sanitation of public and high-traffic areas. Suites will be disinfected twice daily. Departure terminals will be subject to continual disinfection on all surfaces both before and after embarkation.
Upon embarkation, guests will be provided with a portable sanitisation kit, which will include hospital grade hand sanitiser. Hand sanitising points will be placed in easily accessible and strategic points throughout the ship.

 

Enhanced Air Filtration

The highest grade of medical air filters (MERV 13 or HPA according to HVAC standards) have been installed on board the ships. On each of the ships, the HVAC systems supply fresh, filtered air from outdoors to all areas. This continual intake of fresh air means old air is replaced, with a full total air change per hour – well above the minimum required.

 

Medical Facilities & Expert Response

Onboard medical care is stronger than ever, with enlarged teams of doctors and/or nurses on each ship, as well as state-of-the-art equipment enhancements. Additionally, all ships have been appointed with an Infection Control Officer. This person is responsible for ensuring that all enhanced sanitary measures are met.
