COVID – 19 AT GEORGIES CANAL CRUISES

Whilst the country slowly tries to get back to normal and restaurants and bars begin to re-open we are very aware we have a long way to go to get used to the new normal.
Understandably Georgie Kate being 1.85 meters wide does bring different challenges from many other leisure and hospitality establishments. We are looking to do all WE CAN as a company to work alongside government guidelines as best as we can for those that would still like to join us.
Please see below what we will be doing to work around this

-WE REQUEST ALL GUESTS REMAIN IN THEIR VEHICLES OR MEANS OF TRAVEL UNTIL 15 MINUTES BEFORE YOUR CRUISE DEPARTURE TIME AND NOT TO APPROACH GEORGIE KATE BEFORE THIS TIME
– WE WILL HAVE 1 METER MARKINGS ON THE FLOOR OUTSIDE GEORGIE KATE FOR BOARDING. WE ASK YOU KEEP A SAFE DISTANCE WHEN DOING SO

– WE ASK GUESTS NOT TO QUEUE AT THE TOILET AND WE WILL BE USING A SIGN AT THE FRONT OF GEORGIE KATE TO SHOW TOILET IS AVAILABLE OR UNAVAILABLE
– WE WILL BE TAKING PAYMENTS AT THE TABLE AT THE END OF THE CRUISE BEFORE WE RETURN TO AVOID ANY QUEUES
– WE ASK THAT TABLES CLOSEST TO THE DOOR DISEMBARK FIRST AT THE END OF THE CRUISE

Unfortunately, we will be unable to keep guests at a 1-meter distance when using the isle that runs through the centre when boarding, departing or using the toilet facilities on board. We do ask you bare this in mind when booking.

Understandably for many we do understand that this may not be enough for now and alternatively we will be continuing to offer our afternoon tea gift boxes, scones, brownies, cupcakes and celebration cakes for anyone who may wish to enjoy our treats from afar (pre booking via our email info@georgiescanalcruises.co.uk or calling 07946490203
