Scenic Group joined the growing list of companies canceling their summer travel season because of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The company has suspended operations for river cruises and land tours through Aug. 31 for the Scenic, Emerald and Evergreen brands. Sailings on luxury expedition ship Scenic Eclipse have been halted through the end of September. 

“Our top priority is to ensure that our guests and crew are able to travel safely before we resume operations,” Scenic COO Rob Voss said in a press release. “Although we see some easing of national lockdowns and progress being made on Covid-19 measures, the restrictions on travel still vary considerably from country to country, making it difficult to navigate.”

Voss said industrywide health protocols still need further development.

“Suspending operations through Aug. 31 just makes sense as it allows more time for those protocols to be developed and gives our guests enough notice to better plan for their future travels,” he said.
