Tradewind Voyages has cancelled its Australian programme for a further 12 months and will relocate its ship to Barbados this November.

“Due to the ongoing impact of the pandemic in Australia, the voyages there have been postponed for 12 months and the world’s largest tall ship will relocate to start her winter program in Barbados on November 11, 2021,” the company said.

Golden Horizon will sail out of British waters next weekend, August 14, to head back to Croatia, before relocating to Barbados.

The revised winter schedule will see the ship visit St Barts, St Kitts, Antigua, St Lucia, Gaudeloupe, Dominica, Martinique, Tobago, Grenada, Grenadines and St Vincent.

Caribbean voyages will go on sale later this month.

CEO Tradewind Voyages CEO Alan McGrory said: “Given the continuing situation in Australia and other destinations we had planned to visit, in parallel with the cruise industry we have made the difficult decision to revise the entire 2021/2022/2023 programme.

“Based on customer feedback, we have decided to relocate Golden Horizon to the Caribbean for the winter 2021/22 season, effective mid-November. We sincerely thank our agent partners and their clients who are being extremely understanding as we work to accommodate guests on future voyages. 

“We are pleased to offer an exciting schedule across the Caribbean that takes in smaller ports of call to visit some of the most exquisite destinations in the region. The Australian guests will get to experience the exact same adventures 12 months later than planned.”
