Following a recent meeting between CLIA and the Chamber of Shipping the advice has not changed regarding guidelines from the Government and Public Health England. This means anyone who leaves the ship has to be escorted within a ‘bubble’ via a shore excursion.
The advice from the Government is changing constantly and we will keep our guests continually updated of any changes.
We are beholden to the Government’s guidelines and will do everything in our gift to ensure your voyage is enjoyable, regardless of the restrictions.
We would like to thank you all for your continued patience during these challenging times.
Following the UK Prime Minister’s update last week and the extended restrictions in Scotland we have unfortunately had to redesign our UK departures.
Please note below the voyages that have now been cancelled.
1st July Eastern Coastal Contrasts
6th July Scotland East to West
15th July West Coast Gems of Scotland
21st July Maritimes Cities of the North West
25th July Rounding the South West Peninsular

Our English South Coast and Islands Voyage is still operating for 10 nights from 4th August 2021 as planned.
NEW UK VOYAGES
We now have four fantastic new voyages all departing from Dover with durations of 4, 5 and 7 nights. We will delighted to welcome you on board one of these beautiful English south coast voyages.

Government advisement – Going ashore
In order to abide by CLIA – cruise industry guidelines, you will only be allowed ashore if you have booked a shore excursion and must stay within your shore excursion bubble.
There is so much to explore, whether you are enticed by the history of some of our iconic cities or wish to enjoy the great outdoors and contrasting landscapes.
Our Shore Excursion information will hopefully give you a taster of what to expect on your wonderful voyage and our Destinations Team will be pleased to provide you with more detailed information and assist you with your bookings.
If you would like to transfer your voyage or cancel your booking please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01473 932060.
Thank you for your consideration and we are truly sorry for this disruption to your plans.
Since the announcement of an extended lockdown earlier this week, we have been hard at work rescheduling our UK Voyages, in order to meet the Government’s guidelines. We are awaiting port confirmations and as soon as these have been verified, we will share full details regarding our plans.
We appreciate the urgency of new itineraries being released for our guests… and will keep you updated throughout the process.
Once again, we appreciate your patience.
The Tradewind Voyages Team
In light of the Prime Minister’s update earlier this week and the extension of the Government’s restrictions some of our voyages have been affected. Our team are working round the clock to create new voyages for our guests to experience Golden Horizon safely and inline with Government restrictions.
We will advise guests of our revised voyage plan and how they may be impacted as soon as itineraries have been confirmed.
We send well wishes to everyone in the travel industry, guests and travel agents alike, who have all been heavily affected by the changing lock down announcements.
Thank you for your patience
