General information about boat & bike:
The US government has advised travelers with health problems to avoid cruises at this time. However, this concerns large ships on the oceans with thousands of passengers and crew members.
The ships for boat & bike travel differ significantly from this. They are much smaller, only travel very short distances every day and are permanently located in areas with
direct access to high quality medical care. Guests spend most of the day outside. In combination with a high level of hygiene on board, the risk of contamination on these boats can be minimized.
For all boats: compulsory disinfection of hands, additional disinfection measures and intensified cleaning protocols
For many boats: single meals at the table, no buffet
You yourself can also contribute: only arrive when you feel fit and healthy; (temporarily) refrain from shaking hands and kissing; coughing and sneezing in the elbows or in paper handkerchiefs to be disposed of; washing your hands regularly.

General cancellation policy:
If an official travel warning is issued for a country or region in a timely manner or if the journey to the holiday destination is not possible due to state-ordered measures, you naturally have the right to cancel or rebook free of charge. In all other cases, the cancellation conditions are the basis and must be discussed in each individual case.

According to current knowledge, the virus is quite contagious, but by far not as dangerous as many pathogens that people in other regions have to deal with. Therefore: Caution yes - panic no.
