To ensure the safety of all guests, cruise lines have enhanced their preventative screening process for embarkation. Including robust outbreak prevention and response plans, including procedures to provide care for and isolate passengers and crew if needed.
Additionally, all guests may be subject to random screening at any time while aboard. If a guest exhibits signs of illness, temperature screenings will be taken and medical support provided as needed.
We are working closely with our partners to keep you informed about the Coronavirus outbreak and how it may affect some of our members’ travel plans. As we receive information about cancellations or changes to itineraries, we will immediately reach out to you via email and/or phone if your sailing has been impacted. A travel agent will discuss your options and assist you with next steps on your booking.
Some impacts are more significant than others. If your sailing is cancelled due to a travel advisory, we will notify you and work with you to make any cancellations or changes.
Some itineraries are adjusted by the cruise line with a simple port change within the itinerary. If the cruise line cancels your itinerary entirely, they may give you credit for a future cruise, or perhaps a full refund. For more information, you can visit the cruise line website for the most up-to-date policies.
As destinations start to welcome travelers back, it is important to check with the local government to see what mandatory restrictions are still in place, as well as if the property you are staying at has an additional restrictions or adjustments to services provided. Some adjustments may include but are not limited to pool closures, restaurant closures, protective covering requirements, etc.
Before booking, you should check any travel restrictions still in place at the destination you are traveling to, just to be certain they are in fact accepting reservations. In most cases, if you see it available in your Bonwi membership, it should be available. However, due to some rules around social distancing, occupancy and availability may be more limited than normal.
Because of how air circulates and is filtered on airplanes, most viruses and other germs do not spread easily. Although the risk of infection on an airplane is low, try to avoid contact with sick passengers and wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or use hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
While the decision to cancel your reservation is a personal one, most providers are doing everything they can to offering flexible rescheduling and cancellation terms to allow customers more time to make decisions about travel. In many cases, rescheduling your trip to a later date may be an alternative.
