Tradewind Voyages has cancelled its inaugural Caribbean season for Golden Horizon this winter.
The cruise line said it had decided to change plans for 17 voyages between December and April because of ‘guest concerns about accessibility to certain islands and resistance to travelling in bubbles’.
Instead, the cruise line will focus on the ship’s European season next summer and begin Caribbean sailings in winter 2022, reports cruise writer Dave Monk on his Shipmonk blog.
CEO Alan McGrory said: “As a company, the passion and vision has been to deliver an exceptional guest experience; however, the current culmination of ongoing travel restrictions in place for the winter season does not allow us to deliver the experience which the brand stands for.
“Our commitment is always to deliver an outstanding experience for our guests. With so many variables at play for us this winter, we have made the tough decision to cancel these Caribbean voyages.
“Instead, we plan to focus all our efforts in delivering our European 2022 summer season and return to the Caribbean for our winter season in 2022.
“We thank everyone who has supported us on this journey so far and those that have experienced Golden Horizon know that travellers aboard this spectacular ship deserve nothing but the best.”
