Sea Cloud Cruises cancels its Caribbean season

Sea Cloud and Sea Cloud II will be skipping a second Caribbean season due to the pandemic
Sea Cloud Cruises canceled the upcoming winter Caribbean season for two of its vessels — Sea Cloud and Sea Cloud II — for the second year running.

'The rising incidence figures and increasing vaccination breakthroughs worldwide are a serious risk to the Caribbean countries. This has increasingly led to a more restrictive approach to cruise guests, also in the context of slow vaccination coverage locally in the islands,' the company said a statement.

'Access to reliable, necessary health care cannot be guaranteed for guests and crew in case of suspected or confirmed COVID-19 cases on board our vessels in the Caribbean,' the statement added.

The vessels will be docked, not redeployed.

The new Sea Cloud Spirit, inaugurated in September, will continue its winter season in the Canary Islands.
