St Maarten Travel Requirements
as of May 7, 2021
We’ve been hard at work developing new health and safety protocols to keep you Healthy at Sea.
We’ve partnered with medical and scientific advisors from our Healthy Sail Panel, our Global Head of Public Health and Chief Medical Officer; and local health and government authorities to guide us in the development of our protocols. These measures include reduced capacities, enhanced cleaning and sanitization and physical distancing.
Guests 16 years and older must be fully vaccinated with all Covid-19 vaccine doses administered at least 14 days prior to sailing. Guests under 16 aren’t required to be vaccinated but if they are, they will follow guidance for fully vaccinated guests. If a guest is unable to be vaccinated, the guest will need adhere to the strictest testing guidelines. We’re also working with local health authorities in our homeport countries to ensure guests meet current inbound travel requirements.
As we return to sailing, your health and safety remains our top priority.
You can find the latest CDC travel advisory on cruising here.
Safe vacations start with prevention. Prior to boarding, all guests are required to complete a health questionnaire and children and guests unable to be vaccinated will be required to take a complimentary antigen test at the terminal. In some homeport countries, testing may be required for all guests regardless of vaccination status. An additional test will be administered onboard, free of charge, if required for home country re-entry.
Our enhanced cleaning and sanitization protocols set a new standard. Now, with guidance from our Healthy Sail Panel, we’re going further than ever before.
HVAC system continuously supplies and filters 100% fresh, filtered air to all spaces. You can breathe easy knowing the robust system’s layers of protection make the transmission of aerosol particles between spaces extremely low to virtually impossible.
Guests 16 years and older must be fully vaccinated with all Covid-19 vaccine doses administered at least 14 days prior to sailing. Guests under 16 aren’t required to be vaccinated but if they are, they will follow guidance for fully vaccinated guests. Children and guests unable to be vaccinated must adhere to the strictest testing and prevention guidelines.
We’re still providing you the premium service and amenities you’ve come to expect from us, just with even more precautions than before like reduced capacity, physical distancing and enhanced cleaning measures.
Initially, guests will only be allowed off the ship on one of our curated shore excursions. Most experiences are outdoors and guests will be encouraged to stay with their group. Buses will be at reduced capacity and will be sanitized frequently. Small Group Discoveries will be available and for those who would prefer to tour with their family or group, Private Journeys will be available.
We’ve made our high-quality onboard medical care stronger than ever, with more doctors and nurses on each ship and
state-of-the-art equipment enhancements. And in the event of a suspected case of COVID-19, we’re fully prepared with
medical evaluations, rapid testing, more critical care on each ship and a safe and prompt return home.
