March 26, 2020: NIAGARA FALLS, ON — To ensure the health and safety of all staff and guests and following the recommendation of the Government of Ontario, Hornblower Niagara Cruises will be postponing the opening of its 7th operating season, with tentative plans to open on Monday, April 6, 2020.
Ontario’s Chief Medical Officer of Health, Dr. David Williams, has recommended the immediate suspension of all indoor gatherings over 250 people to help contain the spread of COVID-19. Hornblower Niagara Cruises joins The Niagara Parks Commission, and Ontario’s other attraction agencies and convention centres in responding to this recommendation.
“While we were looking forward to our earliest opening ever on March 28th, the health and safety of our guests and our staff is our priority. Hornblower Niagara Cruises is committed to doing its part to help contain the spread of COVID-19,” said Mory DiMaurizio, Hornblower Niagara Cruises Vice President and General Manager.
“Hornblower Niagara Cruises supports the Government of Ontario’s priority on ensuring the health of Ontarians and visitors to the province. We will continue to monitor ongoing events and undertake the precautions and best practices recommended by public health experts and will be providing updates as the situation with COVID-19 evolves,” added DiMaurizio.
Hornblower Niagara Cruises will be contacting guests who have booked tickets to arrange for refunds or adjust their cruise tickets to a later date.
