Seychelles bans cruise ships through 2021 to prevent Covid-19 spread
The Seychelles is a popular destination for celebrities, who have enjoyed the country’s private villas and bright-blue waters over the years.
Prince William and Kate Middleton honeymooned there after their wedding in 2011, as did George and Amal Clooney in 2014.
It’s unclear whether the Seychelles will continue to allow travelers to come into the country by air.
Still, travelers who had hoped to escape to the islands in 2020 or 2021 will likely have other options for their vacations.
Another possible model is “travel bubbles,” where neighboring countries will permit tourism between their nations while ramping up their number of flights and hotel rooms.
