nicko Cruises Health and Safety Protocols

Depending on the regulations of the individual federal states, travelling within Germany has been possible since the beginning of June. On June 15, the Federal Foreign Office lifted its travel warning for the member states of the European Union, for Schengen-associated states and for the
United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

River cruises within the EU or Schengen with special hygiene concepts, such as we have developed with our partner shipping companies, are explicitly permitted in accordance with the Federal Foreign Office and therefore will be operated-provided that the official regulations of the respective country permit access for tourist purposes.

nicko cruises will continue to carefully evaluate all available sources and will continue to work based on facts and with confirmed information. If your trip cannot take place or is in question, we will contact you proactively. All guests and travel partners affected by any cancellation will always be informed in writing as quickly as possible, in order of their travel date. nicko cruises will continue to review all available information thoroughly.

For our ocean cruises we will introduce the so called 2G regulation, which stands for „Geimpfte and Genesene“ and means vaccinated and recovered persons on October 27, 2021 on VASCO DA GAMA and for WORLD VOYAGER from October 29, 2021. On our river trips, the 2G regulation applies with the start of the winter season from November 29th, 2021.

This means that on our cruises from the dates mentioned, only fully vaccinated or recovered guests travel in accordance with the 2G rule. Children under the age of 12 are exempt from the 2G regulation. They must present a negative PCR test, which must not be older than 72 hours at the time of entry.

Thank you for your loyalty and stay safe and healthy!
