Latest Information: Covid-19

In view of the persistently high number of infections, it can be assumed that tourist overnight stays within Germany will continue to be restricted in December. We have therefore decided to cancel our short trips as well as Christmas and New Year's Eve trips in December. The guests and travel agencies affected by the travel cancellations will be informed promptly in the order of the travel date. Our river ships are now taking the winter break and will then start as planned in March.

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.

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. Otherwise, you can assume that we are fulfilling the travel contract as agreed.

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.

“If a travel date is cancelled or becomes questionable, we will of course contact our guests and distribution partners pro-actively”, promises Guido Laukamp. Guests who decide in favor of a later travel date receive attractive re-booking offers.

Safety before departure and on board

We have been preparing intensively for the current situation with our partner cruise operators: The already very high hygienic standards have been tightened once again and also an infection protection-questionnaire for guests and crew members has been implemented, so that the guests experience a safe and relaxed cruise.

Together with the travel documents, all guests will receive an infection protection- questionnaire, which they must bring with them to embarkation. Only persons who have passed the questionnaire with no objectionable result will be admitted to board the ship. Therefore, we ask all guests who meet one of the criteria mentioned in the questionnaire to contact us at short notice at the following number: (+49 711- 24 89 80 599). We are convinced these precautions assure that you will have a safe and relaxing cruise vacation with nicko cruises.

On our ships, hygienic standards are a matter of principle and continuous checks on board are carried out as normative. The already existing hygienic precautions are even tightened by introducing additional prophylactic disinfection measures. Additional measures will be taken to ensure the minimum distance of 1.50 m.
