Tradewind Voyages has re-drawn its entire scheduled cruise programme on Golden Horizon’s from 2021-23 due to the ongoing “complexities” of the pandemic in Australia.

From November 12, 2021, the 272-passenger sailing vessel will operate a revised winter schedule starting in Barbados and calling at St Barts, St Kitts, Antigua, St Lucia, Guadeloupe, Dominica, Martinique, Tobago, Grenada and St Vincent.

Tradewind said “at least four Caribbean voyages” would go on sale later this month and that the original cruises in Australia had been postponed for 12 months.

A new brochure to support the Caribbean itinerary programme will be made available to agents, Tradewind added.

The line has not confirmed when the new itineraries will be announced but said that the sailings currently listed on its website would be soon be taken down within the next 24 hours.

Chief executive Alan McGrory said: “Given the complexities of the situation in Australia and other destinations we had planned to visit, we in parallel with the cruise industry have made the difficult decision to revise the 2021, 2022 and 2023 programmes.

“Based on customer feedback, we have decided to relocate Golden Horizon to the Caribbean for the winter 2021-22 season, effective mid-November.

“We sincerely thank our agent partners and their clients who are being extremely understanding as we work to accommodate guests on future voyages.

“We are pleased to offer an exciting schedule across the Caribbean that takes in smaller ports of call to visit some of the most exquisite destinations in the region. The Australian guests will get to experience the exact same adventures 12 months later than planned.”

Passengers affected by Tradewind’s decision will be offered a full refund and 10% future cruise credit.
