Fall 2020 Voyage Update

In order to allow for global recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, the modified Fall 2020 program was scheduled to begin with online course instruction and continue with a condensed Semester at Sea voyage beginning in late October.

Keeping health and safety at the forefront of our decision-making, we modified the original itinerary and introduced this hybrid online/on-ship model to for the fall voyage. We were hopeful that these measures, combined with to-be-developed international policies and the possibility of decreased COVID-19 transmission numbers, would allow us to safely conduct a Fall 2020 Voyage.

Unfortunately, the number of COVID-19 cases around the world (and especially in the United States) continues to rise and the travel and cruise industries have not yet established policies and procedures to create widespread containment, testing, and care.  These conditions indicate that international travel remains uncertain. In order to create some certainty for our students, Lifelong Learners, and faculty/staff, we have a responsibility to cancel the Fall 2020 Voyage at this date.

We look forward to welcoming you aboard one of our future voyages, however. Explore our featured voyages below!

We look forward to welcoming voyagers on the MV World Odyssey in the future. For more information about Semester at Sea’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic, visit our coronavirus response page.
