Aurora Expeditions requires all embarking crew, Expedition Team and our guests to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 prior to embarking on any of its cruises.
Aurora Expeditions has carefully considered the potential impacts and risks to our expeditioners, staff, and crew associated with COVID-19 (Coronavirus) and we have proactively implemented the following in depth policies and practices to ensure the safety and well-being of everyone. These measures have been put in place following consultation with The World Health Organization (WHO), IAATO*, AECO^, Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA), our marine healthcare partner, Vikand and experienced Medical Advisory Agency, Respond Global, and our crew management partner, CMI Leisure. These will be regularly revised in line with the latest medical advice, advancements and guidelines.
