Avalon Waterways alters health protocols to include guest vaccinations

River cruise line Avalon Waterways revealed the line will require its guests to have proof of COVID-19 vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test result or proof of recovery.

These new protocols will take effect in April 2021.

“We have continued to enhance on-trip safety standards throughout the pandemic to ensure we’re ready to welcome guests back to travel when the world is ready,” said Gai Tyrrell, Managing Director Australasia of Globus family of brands.

“Today, we’re unveiling new pre-trip requirements.”

Travellers are now required to offer Globus family of brands’ personnel one of the following printed and/or digital verifications upon arrival:

  • Proof of COVID-19 vaccination at least 14 days prior to travel
  • Proof of a negative COVID-19 test result within 72-hours of travel
  • Proof of recovery from a confirmed COVID-19 diagnosis within three months of travel

Without one of these verifications, travellers will not be able to join a planned holiday with Globus, Cosmos, Avalon Waterways or Monograms. These requirements are in addition to any federal or state government regulations.

In addition to unveiling new COVID-19 parameters required at the start of each holiday departure, the Globus family of brands announced that they will facilitate – and cover – additional COVID-19 testing, if required, for guests to return to their home country, as well as tests on trip if guests show symptoms.
