Se­abourn White Isl

Travel Daily - - News -

SE­ABOURN has can­celled shore ex­cur­sions to White Is­land for the 2020 sea­son, the cruise line has con­firmed to Travel Daily.

Se­abourn En­core was sched­uled to of­fer the ex­cur­sion through three port calls, in Jan and Feb, but Se­abourn Di­rec­tor Global Public Re­la­tions & Strate­gic Ini­tia­tives Brian Badura told TD pas­sen­ger and crew safety was the line’s top pri­or­ity.

“We would not take our guests and crew to a port - or op­er­ate a shore ex­cur­sion - where we had any in­di­ca­tion there may be an un­due risk to safety and se­cu­rity,” he said.

“We co­or­di­nate closely with sci­en­tific and weather ex­perts, as well as lo­cal of­fi­cials and many others, to make sure we have the lat­est in­tel­li­gence on a wide range of safety-re­lated top­ics be­fore we sched­ule and sail our ships into any of more than 400 des­ti­na­tions around the world.”
