A Note from Malaka Hilton

As we continue to monitor real data and evaluate options that best meet the needs of ATI travelers, please know that your safety and well-being are of utmost importance to the Admiral Travel team.

We are sensitive to the uncertainties surrounding the new coronavirus (2019-nCoV), which has now also been confirmed in our agency’s hometown of Sarasota. We are continuing to monitor the fluid situation closely, and understand that you may feel anxious considering current or quickly-approaching trips.  Admiral Travel is here to help you navigate any decisions with respect to your travel plans.

Our team of advisors at Admiral Travel is working directly with guests whose departures are planned within the next 30-45 days. Our global travel partners are committed to ensuring your peace-of-mind and safety during this challenging time, and may be able to re-accommodate itineraries, if possible, on a case-by-base basis.  ATI’s travel insurance partner, Travelex, has clarified how Trip Cancellation/Trip Interruption claims will be handled on any plans purchased prior to upcoming departures.

We invite all ATI guests to contact your travel advisor directly with any questions you may have.  For those with planned departures in the summer or fall, rest assured that we are closely monitoring the status of cases in specific destinations around the globe.  Please keep in mind that the most important precautions - at home or abroad - to stay healthy include focusing on proper hand washing and following common sense preventative actions recommended by the CDC.


As Ryan and I prepare to board Silversea’s Muse on our 2nd Founders Journey to Australia and New Zealand today, we will do our best to provide a level of comfort to all ATI travelers until there is greater clarity regarding global travel conditions.  There is an abundance of news articles covering Coronavirus, but we are relying on the following sources for the most credible information: 


Wishing you the best,
