Our Commitment to Hygiene and Health


In a recent letter to guests booked on early 2020 voyages, CEO Sven Lindblad mentioned the successful testing and subsequent fleet-wide roll-out of a new onboard protection system. He explained: "Lindblad Expeditions recently became the first self-disinfecting fleet in the cruise industry with the rollout of the ACT CleanCoat™ system. This is a photocatalytic process that works when illuminated, breaking down unwanted microbes such as bacteria, viruses, mold and airborne allergens. It can be applied to all surfaces, which become self-disinfecting after application. This has been planned for well over a year and with the view of drastically cutting down on any number of germ-related transmissions, which it did with great success during the testing phase."
