Where and When to Get Your Test
Most local pharmacy chains offer COVID-19 Testing and most county or state websites can help you find a local public testing site. You can also go to a doctor’s office, diagnostic lab, or telehealth provider to get your test.
Some additional things to keep in mind when scheduling your test:
Concierge Testing Service - (For U.S. Guests Only)
Bioreference - Scarlet Concierge Service: In partnership with Bio-reference a concierge testing option is available for our fully vaccinated guests. Bio-reference will send a qualified medical technician to your home, office, hotel, or any place you choose, to perform the test. The cost is $85 per person. Your results will be ready in about 48 hours. Click here to make an appointment.
Please note, appointment times must be booked individually for each guest even when booking for a family. Multiple people booking from the same location will be tested together and will not have to wait for their specific selected appointment time. Concierge Testing Service is available in most major metropolitan areas within the United States. Please be sure and input the address of your desired testing location to check availability.In order to obtain testing results prior to embarking the ship we highly recommend guests schedule their appointment as soon as possible, for two days prior to embarkation, not including the actual day the ship sets sail. Therefore, if the guest is sailing on a Saturday, they should schedule their test for Thursday.
Scarlet Concierge Customer Support and Questions can be answered at (833) 455-0245.
