Bermuda Travel Requirements 
as of November 2, 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.

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



Health Protocols and Requirements

Sailing Requirements

The Bermuda government will require all guests ages 2 and older to complete an online Travel Authorization form and pay an associated fee directly through Bermuda’s dedicated website located here. 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. 



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. Unvaccinated non-resident guests 12 years of age and older will be required to upload valid proof of travel health insurance when filling out their Travel Authorization form at the website above to enter Bermuda. CruiseCare Travel Protection provides the necessary coverage.  

Unvaccinated children 11 years and under travelling with fully vaccinated parents/guardians can upload their guardian’s vaccination certificate instead of proof of travel health insurance. 

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

While vaccinations are not required to cruise, 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.



No Debark testing is required.


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