KINGSTON, ON — St. Lawrence Cruise Lines has been awarded the #SafeTravels stamp accreditation ahead of the 2021 cruising season.
The Safe Travels Stamp is an international symbol designed to help travellers recognize companies around the world that have adopted global standardized health and hygiene protocols – intended to ensure that travellers can experience ‘Safe Travels’.
The accreditation was the result of enhanced health and safety measures that were developed and enacted by St. Lawrence Cruise Lines for their fall cruise schedule. The measures are specific to overnight small ship cruising within Canada, and include guest screening, reduced passenger loads, physical distancing, masking, and a ship-wide disinfectant program.
In Ontario, the #SafeTravels Stamp is awarded through cooperation between the Tourism Industry Association of Ontario (TIAO) and the World Travel and Tourism Commission (WTTC).
“We are delighted to confirm St. Lawrence Cruise Lines has been awarded the #SafeTravels Stamp. Across Canada, tourism businesses big and small are doing all they can to offer Canadians the perfect vacation. More and more Canadians are looking closer to home to escape from the challenges of the pandemic and rediscovering their own provinces,” said TIAO President and CEO, Beth Potter.
“When they see the ‘Safe Travels Stamp’ has been awarded to the destination or hotel they’re planning to visit they will know that they are upholding the highest standards of health and safety and demonstrating they are adhering to the global health protocols issued by the WTTC,” she added.
St. Lawrence Cruise Lines safely and successfully completed its 2020 fall cruise schedule, after operating a series of 4-night / 5-day cruises on the St. Lawrence River in September and October 2020.
Preparation for the 2021 cruising season is already underway and travellers may call 1-800-267-7868 for booking availability. Information on the cruise schedule, itineraries, and safety measures is available at www.stlawrencecruiselines.com.
