Q: What vaccination and testing requirements does Statsraad Lehmkuhl have for the voyages that will take place in 2023?
A: We have no requirements for vaccination or tests against C19 for the 2023-voyages in Norway and Europe. No one will be tested and no one will be asked to provide a vaccine certificate before embarking the ship.
Please note that the various countries can change their requirements for testing and vaccines at short notice. We at Statsraad Lehmkuhl will adjust our requirements accordingly. The same conditions applies to requirements for insurance policies to cover C19 cases, they may change if the C19-situation changes. We do our best to keep our voyage crews informed of any changes in the countris we visit, but please note that it is ultimately each traveler’s own personal responsibility to keep up to date with, and comply with, C19 guidelines in the countries we visit.
Q: If I am unable to join the voyage due to illness, e.g. C19, will the Lehmkuhl Foundation refund my ticket?
A: If you become sick and cannot join the voyage, you must make a claim for reimbursement to your travel insurance company. Voyage crew members, who can state a valid cause, such as health / illness, experience very few difficulties in terms of refund from their insurance companies. The Lehmkuhl Foundation do not give refunds in these cases.
If the Foundation cancels the voyage due to Covid-19 or any other extraordinary circumstances, the voyage ticket(s) will be refunded by us. Please note that we do not provide refunds for other travel expenses, i.e. airline tickets, hotels, etc.
Make sure that you have a solid travel insurance that covers the requirements of local authorities, including C19-cases, as well as the costs of any planned activities and trips on land. We recommend that you contact your insurance company to make sure that you are well covered.
Q: What happens if there is a C19 case on board out at sea?
A:In case of a C19-case on board during a voyage, they can be isolated in the hospital and taken care of by the ships´s medical doctor. The ship´s hospital is small, but equipped according to international standards. Bunk beds and a bathroom is available.
Q: Can I cancel my voyage and get a refund, if I have to quarantine when arriving?
A: No, that is a risk known to you at the time of booking, and it is outside our area of responsibility.
Q: How can I stay up to date on any changes and other information?
A: We will send all information to the email address you gave when booking. Ultimately, it is each traveler’s personal responsibility to keep up to date with, and comply with, C19 guidelines in the countries we visit.
