CroisiEurope strives for Bureau Veritas Safeguard label

CroisiEurope aims to meet the required standards and re-inspire confidence as they resume operations
CroisiEurope is working with Bureau Veritas Marine & Offshore to achieve Safeguard status, a label which will prove effective infection control measures are in place on board its 32 cruise ships.

Visible to other vessels, the Safeguard label shows that following a successful audit, it can be certified the operator has addressed health, safety and hygiene requirements, properly implemented necessary procedures, trained crew and employees on board and agreed procedures with ports and terminals for port operations.

‘We are delighted to partner with Bureau Veritas for setting up the Safeguard label. This certification confirms the efficacy of the health protocol our teams have been working on for several weeks,' said CroisiEurope owners the Schmitter family. ‘It will allow our guests and crews to stay in a high health security environment for the restart of our cruises.’

CroisiEurope must first enter into the class society’s ‘Restart your business with BV’ customised service, launched in April with measures that protect crew, passengers and staff from COVID-19 and other pathogens.
