Coronavirus Update:  January 22, 2021

COVID-19 vaccinations are underway in the U.S., Canada and other countries and will increase dramatically in the coming months. The chief science advisor of Operation Warp Speed, the U.S. government's expedited search for development and delivery of a vaccine, has said that every American who wants a vaccine will be able to get one by June. Health officials in Canada have said that all Canadians who want a vaccine will receive one by September.

The vaccine rollout marks the turning point in the battle against COVID-19 and the global travel industry is finally on a sure path to reopening. That reopening will take months to play out and will likely occur on a country-by-country basis.

As of today, Mexico and Costa Rica are the only popular tourist destinations that welcome Americans without restrictions, but many Caribbean destinations and Hawaii now welcome Americans with proof of a negative COVID-19 test. Click here for a full list of these destinations and their requirements. We will let you know when other countries' travel bans are removed and when river cruise ships resume operating.

In the meantime, we are here to help with your vacation planning. Please note that anyone holding a future travel credit from a canceled river cruise is able to apply that credit to any river cruise on the same line booked through Vacations To Go, regardless of whether the original trip was booked through Vacations To Go.

Below we’ve listed dates of suspended service by river cruise company and provided links to each company's policy covering future travel credit and refunds on canceled sailings. We have also provided links to relaxed cancelation terms for bookings on future sailings.
 
In general, river cruise companies are offering generous incentives to customers who accept future travel credit in lieu of a refund on a sailing that has been canceled by the operator.
 
Due to a backlog of refund requests, it may take river cruise companies up to 90 days after the cancelation date to return funds to customers.
 
No further action is needed if the booking is canceled and it is not necessary to contact Vacations To Go.
