Coronavirus (COVID-19)
Updated 31 August 2020

While the government travel advice remains as avoid non-essential travel and even though some destinations are included in the Green List of destinations, we are working with all our customers to help them with their holiday plans, so please be patient we will be in contact with you.

The safety and wellbeing of our customers will always remain our top priority.


The Green list – things to know

  • Destinations will be updated by the Government at any time
  • Countries can come off the green list if they do not meet the criteria set out by government
  • People returning from a Green List country, do not have to self-quarantine, however they are asked to restrict their movements
  • If you book a holiday to a green list destination and should it come off the green list while you are there or before you are due to travel – we will contact you and offer assistance
  • Please refer to the following link for an up to date list of countries included in the Green List

I am booked to travel to a destination included in the Green List, can I still go?

Government advice for countries included in the Green List is currently to avoid non essential travel, however you may still travel if wish to do so. We will be contacting all customers regardless of the destination they are travelling to and will discuss what options you have.

I am booked to travel to a destination that is not included in the Green List?

We will contact you and discuss your options as you would be travelling against government advice. Travel Insurance may not cover you, so it is essential that you check your travel insurance policy.

I am due to travel from September onwards

A lot of flights are operating albeit on a reduced frequency for September and beyond. If you are due to travel in September we will contact you and discuss all options with you. We will be contacting people in order of travel date, so bear with us we will get to you.
We are prioritising all rebooking’s based on travel date.

I am due to pay the balance of my holiday, but I’m concerned
We will do our very best to work with you in this regard. On some selected destinations we may be able to delay the balance due date. Please contact our sales team regarding your booking.

I want to change my holiday, what do I do?
Depending on when and where you are travelling to, we will assist you where we can but please bear in mind our focus is on September holidays at the moment.

You are welcome to contact our office during our normal office hours of 9.00am – 5.00pm Mon-Fri. You may also email info@sunway.ie and one of our team will get back to you.

I’m still worried, can I cancel my booking?
If your flight is still operating and you choose to cancel your holiday, then this would be subject to our cancellation policy as per our booking conditions.

I want to book a new holiday but I am concerned I will lose my money?

General Information

Price includes cruise only on a full board basis in an inside stateroom, Government taxes & fees. Gratuities can be pre-paid for your cruise or can be added to your final bill.

Cruising is new to some, so here's some helpful information:

The dress code on cruise ships is as dressy or as relaxed as you want it to be. Evening dining requires smart casual. Casual is welcomed in all buffet areas at all times. Most cruises will have at least one formal night on board, suits and dresses are the clothing of choice, why not join in the fun and get your photo taken!

Remember when making purchases, all cruise ships use a cashless system whilst on board, on check in at port you will receive your own individual identity card which will also double as your room key and payment card. At the end of your cruise you can settle your bill at reception with cash or credit card.

Gratuities or tipping can be paid at booking or at disembarkation , the cost per day depends on the cruise company, your sales agent will be happy to advise you when booking.

It is your responsibility to obtain visas before your holiday, if you go ashore on an excursion with your cruise company, e.g. St Petersburg, a visa will be obtained on your behalf, if you choose to go independently you will be responsible for your own visa.

In order to enter the USA, every person travelling, including children, must have a visa, unless they qualify for the Visa Waiver Program (VWP). Please visit https://esta.cbp.dhs.gov/esta for more information.

Make the most of your holiday by adding a night or two pre or post cruise. From time to time cruise companies will offer extra deals on cabin upgrades and drinks packages, ask our expert cruise team for a quote!
