Scenic Group has shelved the rest of its scheduled departures aboard Scenic Eclipse for 2021.
The decision affects Scenic Eclipse sailings from 1 October until 31 December 2021, and specifically this year’s Central America, South America, and Antarctica itineraries.
The Australian luxury cruise and travel company cited the current situation in South America regarding borders and COVID-19 travel advisories, along with Australian outbound international border forecasts among the reasons for suspending another three months of ocean sailings.
Scenic Group’s river cruise programs in Europe and Asia have also been withdrawn for the month of August 2021.
In an updated COVID Advisory, Scenic said: “Whilst there has been encouraging progress made with vaccination programs in Australia and New Zealand over the past few months, including many other countries, the timeframes for the vaccination roll-out continues to vary significantly for each region.”
