Cruise ships might not be unable to dock in ports due to unforeseen circumstances and for a variety of reasons. If it becomes apparent too many ports are closing then to continue with your itinerary, your ship will take you to the best available port to carry out the repatriation of all guests. In some cases, this may simply be going back to the port of origin or alternatively arranging flights and transfers back home from a different open port. In exceptional circumstances, if there is no availability of commercial flights or there are airport lockdowns preventing your repatriation, cruise lines will look at organising charter flights as well as potentially arranging special flights with the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office. We will work closely with the cruise line in allowing you to disembark and return home as quickly and safely as possible and you will be kept updated and aware of your options throughout the process while onboard.
