Cruises have been off limits to Britons since earlier this year, and it seems this won’t be changing any time soon. But today the FCO confirmed that a holiday on the water may not be entirely out of bounds. The Foreign Office confirmed that river cruises will not be covered by their current cruise ship travel advice.
The updated advice clearly defines that a cruise ship holiday means “staying overnight for at least one night on a sea-going cruise ship with people from multiple households.”
The FCO website adds: “The Foreign & Commonwealth Office advises against cruise ship travel at this time.
“This is due to the ongoing pandemic and is based on medical advice from Public Health England.”
It continued: “Our advice against cruises applies to international travel on a ship that is exclusively for pleasure or recreation, providing overnight accommodation and other leisure facilities such as entertainment venues
