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 and following CDC guidelines we will sail with all crew vaccinated and at least 95% of guests will be fully vaccinated.
We’ve partnered with medical and scientific advisors to guide us in the development of our protocols. Your health and safety remain our top priority, so enjoying your vacation can be yours. It's a new world, but we're still providing the same world-class service Celebrity is known for.
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.

Prior to boarding, all guests are required to complete a health questionnaire and unvaccinated children will be required to take a complimentary 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 homeport, or home country re-entry. For the latest Testing and Travel Requirements by homeport country, please visit Country Travel Requirements.
We will sail with a vaccinated crew and at least 95% fully vaccinated guests. All guests 16 years and older must be fully vaccinated with all COVID-19 vaccine doses administered at least 14 days prior to sailing. As of August 1, 2021, all guests age 12 and older must be fully vaccinated. All UK guests sailing on Celebrity Silhouette 18 years and older must be fully vaccinated.
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.
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.
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.
Independent On-Your-Own tours are available unless locally restricted. While in port, guests must comply with local guidelines. Regardless of vaccination status, Celebrity’s curated shore excursions extend the highest health and safety standards we’re following on board. 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 guests that prefer to tour with their family or group, Private Journeys will be available. We’re working closely with local government to comply with their requirements.
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.
