News and Latest Updates
Last Updated: 24th of October, 2020
Current Position: The Polyglot Cruise 2021 is still going ahead at this time. We are making a final decision of this on or before January 1, 2021.
The Polyglot Cruise offers a 100% full refund guarantee for tickets booked before this date, so you never risk anything by registering. We recommend all travel planning and booking is made with refundable options at this time.
The Polyglot Cruise organisers and volunteers are not medical professionals, and cannot advise on anything related to the Coronavirus outbreak. The information provided on this page is strictly presented as is, and relevant sources have been included when needed.
Update: Virus Situation
The situation is still escalating in many parts of the world, including Europe, where the numbers are currently rising due to additional tests, and previous relaxations of lockdowns.
Due to this, there is still uncertainty whether or not we can safely and securely complete the Polyglot Cruise in April of 2021.
It’s not just about the cruise line actually sailing or not, it’s also an important factor that all or most of our participants need to be able to safely and securely get to the ship without major inconvenience or unreasonable financial expenses.
Due to this we’ll be making a FINAL decision on whether or not the POLYGLOT CRUISE will go ahead on or before January 1, 2021. Any tickets purchased before this date are fully refundable, so you don’t risk anything by supporting The Polyglot Cruise with your registration at this time.
In the event of a cancellation on this date full refunds will be provided and guaranteed by us, so you will be refunded even in the extremely unlikely event that the cruise line goes into administration or insolvency.
The Good News: Cruising Partially Resumed
That was some relatively bad news, but, believe it or not there are actually also positive developments that could mean the Cruise might go ahead.
Some cruise lines, including Costa Cruises – our provider, have resumed cruising in limited fashion with strict guidelines and procedures.
The most significant difference is that you will be tested for COVID-19 before and after any cruise right now.
With more than 5 months to go before the POLYGLOT CRUISE there is still a lot of scope for the situation to drastically improve on a global level.
As always we’ll keep participants posted with any critical updates as and when they are released.
Thanks, as always, for your unwavering support for this new project.
