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.

St Maarten Travel Requirements
Celebrity Boarding Requirements:
Guests that do not meet the testing and health screening policy requirements will be denied boarding.
Face masks are not required for vaccinated guests and optional for guests who choose to wear them. Masks are required for unvaccinated guests under 12 years old while indoors when not in their stateroom, eating or drinking.
However, face masks may be required while ashore based on local regulations. We’re sailing with fewer guests for more space – and more luxury with even more activities to avoid large gatherings in public spaces.
All guests, ages 2 and above, will be issued a Tracelet™ at the terminal to be worn during the cruise. The Tracelet will help us with contact tracing in the unlikely case of an onboard health concern. We will collect your Tracelet at the conclusion of the cruise.
While visiting the Caribbean, on-your-own tours will be permitted in St. Maarten, St. Lucia, Aruba and Curacao. However, excursions provided by Celebrity Cruises will be required in Barbados, St. Kitts & Nevis, and the British Virgin Islands.
In ports where guests are permitted to go ashore independently, all vaccinated guests are permitted to go ashore on their own. All Unvaccinated guests and families with unvaccinated children may only go ashore if participating in an excursion provided by Celebrity Cruises.
Travel Home – St. Maarten and Abroad
An antigen test is required for re-entry into St Maarten for all guests age 2 and up. The test will be administered free of charge on board prior to debarkation. Additional home country test requirements will be administered onboard free of charge.
