From bow to stern, we’re taking extraordinary measures to keep you Healthy at Sea. We’re sailing at reduced capacity to provide more space for more luxury. We’re with you all the way, including safe passage home by private air transfer, if needed*
It's a new world, but providing the same world-class service we're known for is our top priority, so enjoying vacation can be yours.
All crew and guests who are eligible to be vaccinated must be vaccinated in order to sail with us.
All guests 2 and over must present a negative Covid-19 test prior to sailing.
Where local government regulations differ, we will comply with local requirements. 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.
Please be aware of both homeport country travel requirements and Celebrity Cruises requirements as they may differ. We are continually updating this information. Guests will also be notified of the latest requirements leading up to departure via email. Please be sure to register for a guest account so we have your contact information.
All vaccinated guests must present a negative COVID-19 test result taken as either as an Antigen or PCR test conducted within two days of embarkation and complete a health questionnaire prior to sailing. All unvaccinated children between the ages of two and eleven years old, will be required to bring a negative PCR test result conducted within three days of embarkation. An additional COVID-19 Antigen test will be administered in the terminal before boarding and on the day before disembarkation
The CDC has advised unvaccinated guests cannot be tested twice in one day as it may affect the accuracy of the test results, therefore the COVID-19 test required before arriving at the terminal cannot be taken on boarding day.
All fully vaccinated guests requiring a COVID-19 test to return to their home country will be provided the opportunity to receive testing in the cruise port during disembarkation. Proof of return travel scheduled within 24 hours of disembarkation will be required. Details on testing registration will be provided onboard. Testing will be complimentary for guests with cruise reservations booked prior to November 16, 2021. For new bookings made on or after November 16, 2021, testing will be available for a per person fee. The cost for onsite cruise port testing starts at $99* per person. Prices vary by port and test type.
*Test prices are set by each vendor and not by Celebrity Cruises. Payments will be made directly to the vendor providing the service. Celebrity Cruises will not collect or retain any portion of this payment.
All crew and guests who are eligible to be vaccinated must be fully vaccinated with all initial doses administered at least 14 days prior to sailing. COVID-19 Booster Vaccine shots are not required to sail on Celebrity Cruises. View Vaccine FAQ's.
NOTICE: Proof of vaccination will be recorded and may be reviewed for signs of fraud. Unauthorized use of an official government agency seal such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention seal is a federal crime, and will be reported to the relevant government authorities.
We’re sailing with fewer guests for more space—and more luxury. Our enhanced cleaning and sanitization protocols and enhanced medical center set a new industry standard.
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.
Our main priority is your safety in port. We highly recommend you choose shore excursions with Celebrity Cruises that follow the same health protocols we have on board. Most of our carefully selected experiences are outdoors, and you'll be encouraged to stay within your group. Buses will be at reduced capacity and will be sanitized frequently. Please be aware that as destination conditions change, you may be required to go ashore on a shore excursion provided by Celebrity Cruises. This will help to keep you safe and healthy for the rest of your vacation.
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.
We’re with you every step of the way no matter where in the world you travel with us. If you test positive for COVID-19 onboard during your cruise, Celebrity Cruises will cover the cost of your onboard COVID-19 medical treatment, land-based isolation, and private air transfer home for you and your traveling party, if required*. Due to an increasing number of COVID-19 cases, private air transfers will only be provided in medically necessary situations. We will assist guests with commercial flights home once their quarantine period has been completed either shipboard and/or shoreside.
