nicko cruises - Small ships. Great experiences.

Dear nicko cruises guests,


depending on the regulations of the individual federal states, travelling within Germany has been possible since the beginning of June. On June 15, the Federal Foreign Office lifted its travel warning for the member states of the European Union, for Schengen-associated states and for the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

River cruises within the EU or Schengen with special hygiene concepts, such as we have developed with our partner shipping companies, are explicitly permitted in accordance with the Federal Foreign Office and therefore will be operated- provided that the official regulations of the respective country permit access for tourist purposes.

For our ocean cruises, we are consistently following the destination-specific travel warnings and official requirements as well. The infection protection concept that has already been successfully established on the river will be also be put in practice on our ocean-going expedition ships, the size of which corresponds to that of our river ships.

Due to the travel warning from the Federal Foreign Office for Provence-Alpes-Côte-d’Azur, the trip from 1st September starting in Nice going to Valletta cannot take place. We are now planning to operate our ocean cruises from September 11th.


nicko cruises will continue to carefully evaluate all available sources and will continue to work based on facts and with confirmed information. If your trip cannot take place or is in question, we will contact you proactively.


All guests and travel partners affected by any cancellation will always be informed in writing as quickly as possible, in order of their travel date. nicko cruises will continue to review all available information thoroughly.

More details can be found here.

We look forward to welcoming you on board soon!

Your nicko cruises team
