—- 2020 Travel Advisory—-
New England Burials at Sea

At New England Burials at Sea we care about your health, safety and welfare on onboard as well as on land. With coronavirus in the headlines, we understand that many of our client families –even the most traveled ones—may feel some uncertainty about booking future travel.

As an added customer service benefit and effective March 1, 2020 until further notice, we have enacted a new “Reserve your trip with no worry” policy and have added an optional “Insure your planned trip” option in case of any major Airport departure cancellation / trip interruptions / Travel bans due to the recent coronavirus worries described by the World health organization (WHO) or (CDC) Center for disease control. We hope this offers you confidence when making your travel plans. Of course, we will continue to monitor the situation and keep you posted with any relevant info.


If airlines cancel scheduled nearest airport arrivals within 50 miles and within three days of our intended departure port, and if the family clients wants, we will waive any change fee and/or cancel fees for your event and you can simply carry over voucher your event at no cost to reschedule within 365 days of your original scheduled departure date.

If there is no airline cancellation but a family instead decides to postpone their at sea event with us we will still offer to carry over voucher them at no additional cost to be used anytime within 365 days **AS LONG AS**we have 21 days written notice prior to that scheduled departure from client. If the family chooses to cancel, the standard published NEBAS cancel policy applies.

In summary, we are proudly starting our 15th year in business because of caring customers like yourselves. We are flexible, resourceful and creative in the people moving business. We understand family dynamics, travel planning and of course desirable safe sea conditions for your comfort and enjoyment on your planned farewell event at sea for your family and guests.

Together we will work hard to get off the dock as scheduled and on time as we have for almost two decades—we just want you to know that we care and we want to build an additional cushion of travel planning piece of mind security for you and your family during these recent uncertain travel times from all parts of the world that are non-predictive and that we can’t control.

As business owners we are making sure we are following all local, state and federal guidelines to ensure we are doing our part to contain the spread of the virus.

I would like to share some simple things we have been told to do to help slow/control the spread:

  • Wash hands frequently
  • Try to stay 6 ft away from people when you are out
  • Drink half your body weight in ounces of water (Ex a 200 pounds person should be drinking 100 ounces of water a day (About six, eight oz bottles)
