Scottish small-ship cruising company The Majestic Line announces that they intend to start cruising again from 29th August 2020. The company will only cruise with two of their four vessel fleet and will be operating 6 night cruises with a reduced number of guests onboard.
Working within Scottish Government guidelines and having completed the VisitScotland ‘Good to Go’ accreditation the Majestic Lines feels that they are now in a position to offer guests the opportunity to cruise the Scottish Islands with confidence. A number of protocols have been put in place to ensure the safety of guests and crew with minimum impact on enjoyment.
The company will be running two of their most popular cruises ‘Mull and Her Inlets and Islands’ and ‘Skye and the Inner Hebrides’ plus one-off cruises ‘Captain’s Choice’ and ‘Isles of the Clyde and the Southern Hebrides’.
Commenting on the decision to cruise The Majestic Line Managing Director, Ken Grant said, ‘We have many guests who are very keen to cruise with us this year, and having looked long and hard at the options and how best we can confidently offer a cruise experience that is enjoyable and safe we feel that we are now in a position to cruise safely once again.’
Among the additional protocols being implemented are weekly testing of crew to ensure they are Covid free, temperature checking of all crew and passengers, increased daily cleaning and sanitization or all public areas and prior to boarding all guests will be required to confirm that they are symptom free and have not been in contact with anyone known to have the virus.
The Majestic Line’s ability to cruise at the time will be subject to Scottish Government guidance.
