Due to the escalating effects of Coronavirus globally, this cruise is postponed until further notice. On March 9, 2020, the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) released a recommendation warning Canadian travellers to avoid all cruise ship travel due to COVID-19. The recommendation has been referenced on the Global Affairs Canada travel advisory page (https://travel.gc.ca/travelling/advisories.
We are extremely disappointed with this development but we cannot take a risk of proceeding with this cruise, given the upheaval in the world resulting from the Coronavirus Pandemic. We hope to remount this cruise in the Spring of 2022. No set dates yet, but including this year’s info below as a reference point for pricing and scheduling.
