Government Changes To Gatherings


09/09/2020 (10 months ago)   General News

Following the UK Government’s latest announcement on restricting social gatherings to six, we can confirm that we are still permitted to run and welcome passengers aboard all our services. 


Families and social bubbles are unaffected by this change anyway, however as we are running at reduced capacity to ensure social distancing and have a COVID process in place to protect visitors, we too are able to carry on with the new normal.

Our new style of seat allocation does not permit more than six guests within a designated bay, and we have screens in place where required to separate groups.

Face coverings are still currently required on all our services unless you are exempt. Dining customer may remove face coverings when the meal service starts.
