Covid protocols for shore excursions

Will I be able to leave the ship in port if I have not booked a shore excursion?
We are pleased to announce that guests can explore ashore independently, without the need to join an organised shore excursion, in the destinations that allow us to do so.
What measures will be taken to keep guests and crew safe on board for guests returning from independent explorations ashore?
All guests who venture ashore will be required to follow any restrictions in that port of call, which will be communicated to guests before we arrive in the destination. 
Will there be any destinations where you won’t allow guests to go ashore independently?
We will offer independent explorations in as many destinations as we can. While we won’t sail to any destinations on the UK Government’s ‘red’ list, we will be closely monitoring infection rates in each destination using the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control information hub.
I understand that the situation in a destination may change at short notice. How will I know if I will not be able to go ashore independently in any of the destinations?
We will be closely monitoring infection rates in each destination using the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control information hub. If any areas are deemed to have a high infection rate, even if they are not on the UK Government’s ‘red’ list, we will return to only allowing guests ashore via our organised shore excursions in those areas.
Will you still be offering shore excursions in the ports of call?
We know that many guests prefer to explore as part of an organised excursion. Of course, we will continue to offer a selection of bookable shore excursions for all of our sailings.
