For example, the voyage departing November 14 sails roundtrip from Bridgetown, Barbados to Kingstown, St. Vincent and the Grenadines and that nation’s isles of Bequia (right away), Canouan, Mayreau, Tobago Cays and Union Island, and then to St. George’s, Grenada.
Why did the luxury line pick Bridgetown for residence porting, replacing voyages at first prepared much further north in the Caribbean? SeaDream’s chairman, Atle Brynestad, founder, proprietor and chairman, explained to advisors that all 3 nations frequented on the new line-up—Barbados, St. Vincent and the Grenadines and Grenada—have all been open considering that mid-summer season. So, the line wasn’t working with islands and ports of contact that most likely would open—they were being previously open. Bridgetown also has great air lift. Most importantly, Brynestad explained that SeaDream identified a “welcoming” environment.

That included everything from addressing success of entry requirements to arranging authorization for guests who could exam favourable for COVID-19 in the foreseeable future to be taken off the ship to a local hospital.
SeaDream also laid out the multifaceted tests application so advisors could get a sense of the rigid protocols. Moreover a exam essential prior to arrival at the pier, attendees are examined pier-facet ahead of boarding with quick outcomes in fifteen minutes. Those people tests favourable at the pier will be retested there and then, if the end result is even now favourable, be taken to a local hospital for tests. If the end result is favourable, boarding will be denied.
Onboard, the line is adding specific flooring mats to disinfect shoes as attendees occur on the ship. It’s going to pre-sanitize all suites with Altapure AP-4, an innovative ultrasonic fogger used for the high-stage disinfection of hospitals, burn off units and cleanse rooms. Visitor suites will be disinfected everyday and UV lamps used as well there. Sanitizer dispensers will be positioned around the yacht.
