Announcing Our Return to Sailing

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.

Celebrity Cruises will be one of the first to offer fully vaccinated sailings, where guests age 18 and over will be vaccinated against COVID-19. And we’re 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.

We will continually evaluate and update these requirements and protocols as new information becomes available.
Booked guests will be advised of the latest requirements leading up to departure.

You can find the latest CDC travel advisory on cruising here.

Healthy at Sea Protocols

We’re working closely with local government to comply with their requirements. Booked guests will be updated as requirements evolve.


Testing & Screening

Safe vacations start with prevention including vaccination and testing for guests and crew. Prior to boarding, all guests are required to complete a health questionnaire and unvaccinated guests 2 and older will be required to take an antigen test at the terminal and prior to debarkation if required for home country re-entry.

Cleaning & Sanitization

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.

100% Fresh, Filtered Air

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.



While On Board

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.​


24/7 Medical Care

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 immediate medical evaluations, rapid testing, more critical care on each ship and a safe and prompt return home.


While Ashore

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.
