Health & Safety: Covid 19 Protocols

Health and Safety

Health and Safety protocols are subject to change without notice.

At the Majestic Line, the safety and well-being of our guests and crew is paramount. At all times we will adhere to the Scottish government’s guidance for the hospitality sector for Covid-19. However, in our guests interest we go may beyond it with additional measures depending on the prevalence of Covid-19 in the community as the season evolves.

All crew will be tested before starting a tour of duty with PCR (the gold standard) tests.

Prior to boarding we may:

  • Ask all passengers to complete a pre-cruise health questionnaire

We will have all the following hygiene protocols in place throughout our 2021 season:-

  • Meet Scottish government rules on social distancing facial coverings will be provided to be worn in conjunction with current guidance
  • Hand washing is actively encouraged and there will be hand sanitiser stations on board
  • Doors will be left open wherever possible to allow for good ventilation and eliminate the need to touch them
  • Cleaning wipes will be available to wipe surfaces
  • The Skipper will temperature check all crew and guests daily at breakfast time and keep a record – this will be destroyed 7 days after the end of the cruise
  • Individual cruets will be available
  • Wine will be poured by the crew
  • Fruit/soft drinks/tea & coffee is available all day but must be requested from a crew member
  • Chefs – food preparation as per Covid-19 guidance
  • Allocated lifejackets for the duration of your cruise

We will only cruise if we can offer a safe environment for our guests to enjoy The Majestic Line experience.
