Bermuda Travel Requirements as of
as of August 22, 2022

Travel requirements vary by homeport country. Be sure you’re aware of both homeport country and Celebrity Cruises vaccine and testing requirements as they may differ. 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.

Bermuda does not accept Certificates of Recovery and will not exempt guests from presenting a negative COVID-19 test result. Guests who are unable to present a negative COVID-19 test result, regardless of whether or not they have a Certificate of Recovery, are unable to debark the ship in Bermuda and cannot sail if Bermuda is the port of disembarkation.

For more details on Bermuda’s requirements, please visit their dedicated website here.

 


 


Health Protocols and Requirements

Bermuda requires all guests to complete an online Travel Authorization form, upload their negative test results, and pay an associated fee directly through Bermuda’s dedicated website located here: https://www.gov.bm/cruise-travel-authorisation. A receipt of this form, digital or paper copy will need to be presented at check-in in order to board the ship. This form is available beginning 30 days prior to sailing and all guests must present their approved authorization form in order to board their sailing.

 

Vaccine Policy to Sail

Beginning with sailings embarking on September 5, 2022, all travelers, regardless of vaccination status, can now cruise as long as they meet testing requirements to board. While vaccinations are not required to sail on Celebrity Cruises, they are highly recommended.

COVID-19 booster vaccine shots are not currently required to sail on Celebrity Cruises but are highly recommended.

While vaccinations are not required, guests are considered fully vaccinated against COVID-19 if 2 weeks have passed since their second dose in a 2-dose series (such as Pfizer or Moderna vaccines); or, 2 weeks after a one dose-series (such as Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine).  

Vaccines approved and accepted by the World Health Organization (WHO) OR by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) will be considered valid with the current exception of the CanSino vaccine.

Guests with a mixed series of any two of the following vaccines taken within a minimum of 28 days between doses, will also be considered fully vaccinated: Pfizer, Moderna, Johnson & Johnson, AstraZeneca/Covishield, Sinovac, Sinopharm or Youths who have received one dose of a vaccine (other than Johnson & Johnson) will not be considered fully vaccinated. 

The government of Bermuda doesn’t recognize Novovax or Covaxin as approved vaccines. Guests whose vaccination consists of either will not be permitted to go ashore.

Bermuda does not accept Certificates of Recovery and will not exempt guests from presenting a negative COVID-19 test result. Guests who are unable to present a negative COVID-19 test result, regardless of whether or not they have a Certificate of Recovery, are unable to debark the ship in Bermuda and cannot sail if Bermuda is the port of disembarkation.

 

Sailing Testing Requirements 

All guests ages 2 and older must present a digital or physical copy of a supervised, negative COVID-19 test result at check-in to board their sailing.

Up-to-Date* Guests and Fully Vaccinated** but not Up-to-Date Guests: Must present a negative antigen test result taken within 2 days prior to sailing or negative PCR test result taken within 3 days prior to sailing. Pre-arrival testing must be completed by an authorized provider at your own expense.

Unvaccinated Guests: Must present a negative PCR or antigen COVID-19 test result taken within 2 days prior to sailing. Pre-arrival testing must be completed by an authorized provider at your own expense. 

Debark/Re-Entry

Pre-Cruise Test Kit Resources for U.S. and UK Guests

Celebrity Cruises has also worked with its trusted vendors to make options for procuring monitored/proctored test kits available to you. We strongly recommend ordering test kits at least 7 days in advance of your sailing. These tests allow you to complete your pre-cruise test at home or any place of your choosing with the help of live video supervision by a Certified Guide.

  • U.S. Guests can purchase Abbott BinaxNOW test kits here.
  • U.K. Guests can purchase Prenetics test kits here.

 


 
While Onboard

Mask Policy

Currently, face masks are optional onboard Celebrity ships for all guests, regardless of vaccination status. Celebrity Cruises follows the requirements in all jurisdictions we sail, and please note that mask requirements may vary by the destinations visited on your sailing and/or disembarkation port. This policy is continually re-evaluated, and any updates will be shared with guests.

 


 

While Ashore

 

 

All guests may go ashore on their own where it’s permitted.

 


 

Guests that do not meet the testing and health screening policy requirements will be denied boarding.
