Our Commitment to Health & Safety
To our valued guests,
For nearly 20 years we’ve offered you the opportunity to create a sea of memories aboard Yacht StarShip and we look forward to continuing the tradition. Although we’ve had to navigate uncharted territory, we are staying course with you in mind. Yacht StarShip Cruises & Events has resumed cruising while implementing best practices from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and local health department guidelines. We wanted to update you on what we are doing to ensure your safety and comfort on our ships.
Yacht StarShip is committed to your safety. We’ve implemented the following procedures and protocols:
- In line with local regulations, all guests 8 and older are required to wear face masks while cruising with us. Guests may remove the mask once seated at their table for eating and drinking. Masks are required to be worn inside the yacht when not sitting at your table and outside when social distancing is not possible, including on the dance floor. Our servers and staff will continue to wear face masks at all times. We thank you for your cooperation as we are all in this together.
- For the safety of our guests and crew, we’ve temporarily closed the dance floors and suspended dancing on all public cruises.
- Added hand washing stations in the boarding area, all guests will be required to wash hands prior to boarding.
- Added hand sanitizer stations throughout the yacht.
- All yachts will be sanitized/cleaned before, during and after each cruise with an emphasis on cleaning high touch points during the cruise.
- Reduced seating in the dining rooms and outdoor decks, to ensure social distancing.
