Guest Health, Safety, and Conduct Policy
(Last Updated: January, 2021)
Throughout its history, Celebrity Cruises (referred to herein as “Celebrity,” “our,” “we,” or “us”) has provided guests with exceptional cruise vacations. Our professional and friendly crew; extraordinary fleet of ships; diverse array of entertainment options and onboard activities; extensive list of exotic destinations and excursions; and exquisite culinary offerings are just a few of the many reasons a Celebrity Cruises vacation is unmatched in luxury and quality.
One of the most amazing aspects of a Celebrity cruise is the rich and varied cultures represented among our guests. This diversity offers everyone sailing with us a chance to learn about different regions of the world and make new friends. But, just as having a new friend can enhance the vacation experience, encountering someone who is behaving in an undesirable way can do just the opposite. To ensure all our guests have an enjoyable voyage, it is important that everyone have a common understanding of the health, safety, and behavioral standards in place on our Celebrity ships.
This Guest Health, Safety and Conduct Policy (hereafter referred to as the “Policy”) sets forth standards of conduct for guests to follow throughout their Celebrity cruise vacation, including during transfers to and from ships, inside port terminals, while onboard, at ports of call, during shore excursions, and while visiting our private destinations. Establishing and articulating a Policy helps ensure that all guests enjoy a fantastic, safe, and secure cruise vacation experience. Celebrity Cruises appreciates your adherence to this Policy and wishes all guests a happy, healthy, and memorable voyage.
THIS POLICY SHALL APPLY ONBOARD OUR VESSELS AND ASHORE IN OUR TERMINALS, PORTS OF CALL, AND PRIVATE DESTINATIONS.
IN ORDER TO BOARD AND REMAIN ON ANY OF OUR SHIPS OR IN OUR PRIVATE DESTINATIONS, ALL GUESTS MUST COMPLY WITH THIS POLICY AND ALL OUR HEALTH AND SAFETY POLICIES AND PROCEDURES. IN ADDITION, GUESTS ARE REQUIRED TO COMPLY WITH ALL APPLICABLE LAWS OF THE VARIOUS COUNTRIES THEY VISIT.
FAILURE TO COMPLY WITH THIS POLICY, ANY OF OUR OTHER POLICIES, OR ANY INSTRUCTION COMMUNICATED BY US (INCLUDING OUR CREW) AT ANY TIME IN ANY FORM, WRITTEN OR ORAL, WILL BE CONSIDERED A BREACH OF THIS POLICY AND MAY RESULT IN ONE OR MORE ENFORCEMENT ACTIONS AS DESCRIBED BELOW, INCLUDING DENIAL OF BOARDING OR REMOVAL FROM THE SHIP OR PRIVATE DESTINATION WITHOUT ANY COMPENSATION OR REFUND. IN CERTAIN CIRCUMSTANCES, OUR ENFORCEMENT ACTION(S) MAY RESULT NOT ONLY IN REMOVAL OF THE GUEST BUT ALSO THE REMOVAL OF ALL OTHER PERSONS IN THE GUEST’S TRAVEL PARTY OR RESERVATION(S).
For purposes of this Policy, the term “travel party” shall be given its broadest possible interpretation and shall include, but not be limited to: (1) persons traveling in the same stateroom or reservation, (2) persons traveling in multiple staterooms or as part of multiple reservations, as well as (3) persons we determine to be legally or socially related or proximate in any way, at any time prior to or during the voyage, for any duration of time.
THIS POLICY IS SUBJECT TO THE CAPTAIN’S OVERRIDING AUTHORITY UNDER NATIONAL OR INTERNATIONAL LAW TO MAKE AND EXECUTE DECISIONS WHICH, IN THE CAPTAIN’S SOLE PROFESSIONAL JUDGEMENT, ARE NECESSARY TO MAINTAIN THE HEALTH, SAFETY, AND SECURITY OF THE SHIP.
The terms of this Policy are valid from the date shown above and will remain in full force until we choose, in our sole discretion, to update or modify all or part of the Policy. Updates or modifications to the Policy may be made and shall be effective without publication, although we will endeavor to post any updates or modifications to the Policy in a timely manner and to a publicly accessible forum, including but not limited to the various Celebrity Cruises websites and/or mobile phone applications.
A GUEST’S ACTUAL OR THREATENED VIOLATION OF THIS POLICY, ANY OF OUR OTHER POLICIES, OR ANY INSTRUCTION COMMUNICATED BY US (INCLUDING BY OUR CREW) AT ANY TIME IN ANY FORM, WRITTEN OR ORAL, OR OUR ASSESSMENT – IN OUR SOLE DISCRETION - THAT A GUEST’S PRESENCE ONBOARD OR IN OUR PRIVATE DESTINATION(S) CREATES A CONCERN OR RISK FOR THE HEALTH, SAFETY, OR SECURITY OF OUR VESSEL, OTHER GUESTS, OR OUR CREW, MAY RESULT IN ONE OR MORE OF THE FOLLOWING ENFORCEMENT ACTIONS:
• Intervention by Security, other management personnel, or law enforcement;
• Reporting to the competent government and law enforcement authorities;
• Removal of certain onboard privileges, which may include being detained, quarantined, or confined in a stateroom or holding cell;
• Confiscation of illegal, contraband, or prohibited items, which may, at our discretion, be turned over to law enforcement authorities;
• Denial of boarding or removal from the vessel; and/or
• Denial of boarding on any future Celebrity cruise vacation.
ANY OF OUR DETERMINATION(S), ASSESSMENT(S), JUDGMENT(S), DECISION(S), AND/OR ENFORCEMENT ACTION(S) UNDERTAKEN BY US PURSUANT TO THIS POLICY SHALL BE IN OUR SOLE DISCRETION AND SHALL BE FINAL.
Guest Responsible for Expenses Incident to Enforcement Action(s)
Guests removed from a Celebrity Cruises ship or denied boarding because of a violation of this Policy are responsible for their own accommodations and transportation home, at their expense. Documentation requirements for re-entry into the guest’s home country are also the responsibility of the guest.
Obligation to Always Follow Security Personnel Instructions; Security Screenings
Guests must follow all instructions provided by our onboard Security personnel whether at the terminal, onboard, or at a destination (including our private destinations). Refusal to follow all instructions provided by our Security personnel may result in enforcement actions, up to and including denial of boarding or removal from the vessel.
Guests will undergo a security screening prior to boarding the vessel (e.g., prior to commencing the voyage, or at ports of call), and at any time where we may - in our sole discretion - require such security screening during the voyage. We will also require a security photo for each guest. While taking the security photo, or during a security screening, guests may be required to briefly remove any facial coverings (e.g., masks), hats, costumes, or other materials that may impede the verification of a guest’s identity. Refusal to participate in the security screening or provide a security photo may result in denial of boarding or removal from the vessel.
Similarly, during facial recognition enabled embarkation or debarkation, guests may be required to briefly remove any facial coverings (e.g., masks), hats, costumes, or other materials that may impede the verification of a guest’s identity.
Mandatory Safety Drill
All guests must attend the mandatory safety drill (also known as “muster”) and follow all health and safety instructions issued by the Captain as part of the mandatory safety drill announcements. Upon embarkation, guests will have a window of several hours during which they must (a) review essential safety information and (b) report to their designated muster station. On certain vessels, guests are encouraged to use our patented eMusterTM system, which allows for the review of essential safety information by viewing a safety video via our mobile app or stateroom televisions. Guests who do not complete the safety video portion of the muster requirements via eMuster™, or who are otherwise unable to review essential safety information upon embarkation, will be required to participate in a brief safety presentation upon arrival at their designated muster station.
Guests’ Reporting Obligation
Safety and security are everyone’s responsibility. Guests must immediately report their own injury and any injury of others, as well as any unsafe or possibly illegal behavior, to the ship’s Security or management staff. Guests can do so by calling the ship’s emergency telephone number listed in the Directory of Services, visiting or calling the Guest Relations Desk, or contacting the ship’s Security or management staff anywhere they are available.
Failure to immediately report an illness, injury, or unsafe or illegal behavior may cause the ship’s personnel to be unable to effectively respond to the situation. Any reporting delay may also cause the ship to be unable to properly preserve information or evidence and may cause a delay in notifying the proper law enforcement or other government officials.
Additional helpful information on reporting may be found in the “Health, Safety & Security Guide” available on our website and onboard at our Guest Relations location.
We have taken numerous steps to provide a healthy environment to all persons throughout their voyage. To that end, we have put in place policies and procedures consistent with current government, regulatory, and public health guidance.
GUESTS AGREE TO REVIEW AND COMPLY WITH ALL OF OUR HEALTH OR SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS, OR OTHER POSTED SIGNAGE. FAILURE TO DO SO WILL LEAD TO ENFORCEMENT ACTION, INCLUDING BEING DENIED BOARDING, REMOVAL FROM THE VESSEL, AS WELL AS THE DENIAL OF BOARDING OR REMOVAL OF A GUEST’S TRAVELING PARTY, FROM THE VESSEL.
To the extent public health guidance evolves, we will update our policies and procedures accordingly. We will communicate the policies and procedures that are relevant to each voyage before sailing and throughout the cruise, should they change.
In addition, we will provide information regarding port procedures; embarkation and disembarkation, social distancing and personal protection measures; use of on-board facilities; shore excursions (if any); and containment and mitigation processes in the event of identification of suspected or confirmed cases of communicable disease(s) (e.g., COVID-19), including contact tracing processes and post-cruise procedures.
WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO DENY BOARDING TO ANY GUEST EXHIBITING SYMPTOMS OF COMMUNICABLE DISEASE(S), INCLUDING COVID-19, OR WHOSE HEALTH SCREENING RESULTS SHOW THEY MAY HAVE CONTRACTED SUCH A DISEASE(S). BOARDING MAY ALSO BE DENIED TO THOSE PERSONS WE DEEM, IN OUR SOLE DISCRETION, TO BE A CLOSE CONTACT OR IN THE TRAVEL PARTY OF ANY GUEST EXHIBITING SYMPTOMS OF COMMUNICABLE DISEASE, INCLUDING SOME OR ALL OF THAT GUEST’S TRAVELING PARTY.
Please consult our Privacy Notice for information on how we will securely collect, retain, store, and share guests’ health information, as may be applicable.
Mandatory Preboarding Testing and Screening
Mandatory health screenings will be conducted prior to boarding, and special health and safety procedures will be in place during boarding. These procedures are important, and all guests must comply with all signs and instructions provided prior to embarking our vessels.
Throughout the health screening and boarding process, guests must provide clear and accurate information to us and any of our service providers at all times. Guests must also cooperate with us, our agents, or service providers, during any attempt to obtain health information or carry out any health-related function(s).
GUESTS WHO REFUSE TO PROVIDE HEALTH INFORMATION OR WHO WILLFULLY PROVIDE INACCURATE HEALTH INFORMATION TO OUR MEDICAL TEAMS AS PART OF A HEALTH SCREENING OR HEALTH ASSESSMENT MAY BE DENIED BOARDING, QUARANTINED, OR SUBJECT TO OTHER ENFORCEMENT ACTION(S).
Further details about the screening and testing process will be provided to guests prior to the voyage.
Health Monitoring Onboard
Participation in our health monitoring and contact tracing processes is mandatory, subject to reasonable accommodation(s) in view of any applicable disability.
Our disease prevention programs may include regular temperature screenings and/or testing for communicable diseases (e.g. COVID-19). We may also require guests to participate in contact tracing processes to help control the spread of communicable disease (e.g., COVID-19). This may include the requirement for guests to wear a wristband or other wearable device(s) for technology-enabled contact tracing.
Health Monitoring on Return to Port
Guests may be required to participate in testing and screening at the end of their cruise on return to port, These tests may be conducted by us, by our agents or service providers, or by national authorities including health authorities.
Reporting Obligation for all Symptoms of Communicable Disease
GUEST EXPERIENCING ANY SYMPTOMS OF COMMUNICABLE DISEASE, HOWEVER MILD, INCLUDING SYMPTOMS OF COVID-19, DIARRHEA, OR VOMITING, MUST IMMEDIATELY RETURN TO THEIR STATEROOM AND REPORT TO THE SHIP’S MEDICAL PERSONNEL BY CALLING THE MEDICAL FACILITY ONBOARD.
GUESTS MUST ALSO IMMEDIATELY REPORT SYMPTOMS FOR MEMBERS OF THE GUEST’S TRAVELING PARTY, OR ENSURE THOSE PERSONS EXPERIENCING SYMPTOMS IMMEDIATELY RETURN TO THEIR RESPECTIVE STATEROOM(S) AND REPORT TO THE SHIP’S MEDICAL PERSONNEL BY CALLING THE MEDICAL FACILITY ONBOARD.
FAILURE TO IMMEDIATELY REPORT A COMMUNICABLE DISEASE OR ITS SYMPTOMS, OR WILLFULLY FAILING TO ACCURATELY REPORT SYMPTOMS IS A VIOLATION OF THIS POLICY.
Symptoms of COVID-19 include, but are not limited to: high temperature or fever; a new continuous cough; shortness of breath or difficulty breathing; a loss of or change in sense of taste or smell; muscle aches; headaches; and fatigue.
In some jurisdictions, it may be a criminal violation to willfully expose other persons to a communicable disease.
Failure to comply with all treatment instructions issued by the ship’s crew and/or medical personnel shall be a violation of this policy.
We may, in our sole discretion, require a guest or others in the guest’s traveling party to be confined to their stateroom or placed in quarantine to avoid a communicable disease or other contagious condition from spreading to other persons onboard or beyond. Guests may be required to move to a new stateroom that has been set up specifically for isolation/quarantine.
Guests must wash their hands with soap and hot water after using the restroom and before eating or handling food. According to medical experts, one of the best ways to prevent contagious illnesses, like gastrointestinal viruses, colds, and the flu, from starting or spreading is to wash hands thoroughly for at least 20 seconds with soap and hot water after using the restroom and again before eating or handling food.
Visiting Ports and Shore Excursions
At certain ports of call and in our sole discretion, we may restrict disembarkation to guests who participate in certain shore excursions that have been designated by us. In that event, guests will be required to travel and remain with the designated shore excursion group while off the ship and to follow all health and safety instructions provided by us, the tour operator, and the applicable jurisdiction.
Guests disembarking or embarking the ship at a port of call may be subject to additional mandatory health screenings and checks. We will provide guests with details of any additional health screenings and checks prior to disembarkation at a port of call. Please note that the local authorities in the port of call may also require additional screening and testing of guests at the point of disembarkation and/or embarkation, and guests must comply with these requirements.
Fitness to Travel - Guests with Disabilities
Guests with disabilities are not required to travel with another person as a condition of traveling on our ships. However, all guests must consider that crew members are not required to assist guests with personal tasks or personal hygiene needs (e.g. assisting with eating, dressing, toileting). Therefore, guests requiring assistance with these functions should consider these needs when planning a cruise vacation. If there is a question as to a prospective guest's ability to independently provide for their personal needs or hygiene without being a danger to themselves or others, and the guest plans to travel alone, this situation must be discussed with the company’s Access Department prior to booking a cruise vacation. This will allow an individualized assessment of the guest's fitness to travel without personal assistance for the duration of the cruise. Guests attempting to board or found onboard without the ability to independently care for their personal needs will be evaluated to determine if they are fit to safely travel without assistance. Guests who are found unfit to travel may be denied boarding or removed from the ship at the next port of call, without entitlement to compensation or a refund.
Guests must bring an adequate supply of all medication(s) they require for the entire duration of the voyage. We recommend all persons have an adequate supply of medicine so as to last for several extra days past the voyage end date, in the event of possible delays caused by itinerary disruptions, such as adverse weather or other unforeseen circumstances. The ship’s medical centers may not have a supply of needed medication, and not all medication will be available in the ports of call.
To ensure medicines are always accessible, guests should not pack medication in checked luggage. Instead, guests should carry all medications onboard in their hand luggage.
Prohibited Guest and Crew Interactions
Our crew members are friendly, outgoing, and helpful, and they will do their very best to make a guest’s vacation as enjoyable as possible. Please do not misinterpret their friendliness. Crew members are prohibited from engaging in physical relationships with guests. Crew members are not permitted to socialize with guests beyond their professional duties and are not permitted to be in guest staterooms, except for the performance of their shipboard duties. Guests are expected to respect these policies and are similarly prohibited from engaging in physical relationships with crew members. Guests are not permitted in any restricted or crew area of the ship, including crew staterooms and corridors.
Verbally Abusive, Offensive Language and Threats Prohibited
Verbally abusive and/or offensive language directed toward anyone, including guests, crew members, governmental officials, or others, is not permitted. Conduct and/or statements that threaten prohibited or illegal activity are also forbidden.
Attempts at self-harm, as well as oral or written statements or conduct evidencing intent to engage in self-harm, shall be subject to enforcement action by our crew or Security personnel so as to protect life and the security of our guests, crew, and vessel(s).
Inappropriate or Abusive Behavior Prohibited
Inappropriate or abusive behavior is not permitted. This includes uninvited physical contact; solicitation; harassment; vandalism; theft; violence; use of fake/false identification; underage drinking or providing alcohol to those under the allowed age (see Alcohol section below); possession of illegal substances/items; placing signs, banners, decorations, or other materials anywhere on the exterior of the ship; placing materials on stateroom doors, along corridors, or anywhere else on the interior of the ship without the express permission of ship management; installing, placing, laying or affixing materials anywhere in or on the vessel that may be deemed inappropriate by ship management; and any other illegal or offensive conduct.
Unsafe Behavior Prohibited
Failure to follow all health, safety, and security instructions and policies is strictly prohibited.
Sitting, standing, jumping, laying, or climbing on, over, or across any exterior or interior railings or other protective barriers is strictly prohibited.
Additionally, tampering with any of the ship’s equipment, facilities, or systems is not permitted.
Any other behavior which, in our sole discretion, we deem unsafe is likewise not permitted.
Discourteous or Disruptive Behavior Prohibited
Pool, deck, and theater chairs may not be reserved, except in cases of disability. Public nudity is not permitted. Guests must be appropriately attired, including while on stateroom balconies if visible to others onboard, other vessels, or the shore. Topless sunbathing is not permitted except on select itineraries and for those itineraries, only in specifically designated areas. For more details on our Dress Code, please contact Guest Relations.
Boom boxes, loud radios, and other noise nuisance(s) are not permitted. Roller blades, roller skates, skateboards, surfboards, bicycles, and similar items may not be utilized onboard. Scooters are not permitted onboard except when used as a mobility aid.
Smoking and Restrictions on Purchase of Tobacco Products Onboard
For the comfort and enjoyment of our guests, our Celebrity ships are non-smoking. Hookahs and other types of water pipes are prohibited from use under this non-smoking designation.
Smoking is not permitted inside any stateroom or on any stateroom balcony. This applies to all stateroom categories onboard. Smoking is also not permitted in any dining venue, theater, bar, lounge, hallway, or elevator; on the jogging track; or in most other indoor areas. Furthermore, smoking is not allowed in certain outdoor spaces, including restricted areas, food venues, and kids play areas and pools. If a guest is in violation of this “No Smoking” policy, a cleaning fee will be applied to their onboard account.
Because we recognize that some guests do smoke, we have designated smoking areas on the ship. These smoking areas are identified by signage, and ashtrays are provided in these locations for smoking use. Guests may inquire about the location of the ship’s designated smoking areas at the Guest Relations Desk.
In casinos on itineraries where smoking is allowed, there will be visible signage designating the areas for both smoking and non-smoking guests.
Cigar and pipe tobacco is limited to designated outdoor areas and cigar bars (if the ship has one). Electronic cigarettes or e-cigarettes are only permitted within the designated smoking areas.
Cigarettes, cigars, and pipe tobacco must be properly disposed of and never thrown overboard.
Guests must be at least 18 years of age to purchase, possess, or use tobacco onboard.
Celebrity Cruises reserves the right to enact curfews on an individual, group, or ship-wide basis, if in the sole judgment of Celebrity Cruises or the ship’s Captain, such steps become necessary for the health or safety of guest(s) or crew.
Parental and Guardian Responsibility
For purposes of this Policy, a minor is defined as anyone under the age of 18. A young adult is defined as anyone ages 18, 19, or 20. Parents and guardians are responsible for the behavior and appropriate supervision of the minor(s) and young adult(s) accompanying them throughout their vacation. This obligation applies during transfers to and from ships, inside terminals, while onboard, at our ports of call, during shore excursions, and at our private destinations. This responsibility applies at all times, regardless of whether the parents and/or guardians are physically in the company of their minor(s) and/or young adult(s).
Under no circumstances should the parent or guardian of a minor debark the ship without their accompanying minor(s) unless they have arranged for the accompanying minor(s) to have responsible adult supervision on the ship during their absence. Parents and guardians must not permit any minor in their care to leave a ship while in port without responsible adult supervision.
Consuming alcohol to excess impairs one’s judgment and reduces one’s ability to recognize and avoid potentially dangerous situations. Guests who choose to consume alcohol must do so responsibly. The ship’s staff may, in their sole discretion, refuse to serve alcoholic beverages to any guest who does not consume alcohol responsibly. The ship’s staff may request proof of a guest’s age to verify they are of age to consume alcohol pursuant to this Policy. Adult guests are prohibited from providing alcohol to minors or young adults. All drinking games are prohibited.
A guest must be at least 21 years old to drink and/or possess alcoholic beverages on ships sailing from North America or the United Arab Emirates, and 21 is also the minimum drinking age for guests visiting our private destinations. The minimum age for a guest to drink and/or possess alcoholic beverages on ships sailing from South America, Europe, Asia, Australia, and New Zealand is 18. In all other cases, the drinking age of the home port shall determine the legal drinking age for the sailing.
Guests may contact Guest Relations or refer to the cruise information in their stateroom for minimum drinking age information specific to their cruise vacation.
For purposes of complying with the minimum age to drink and/or possess alcoholic beverages, a guest’s age is established at the beginning of the cruise vacation. If a guest celebrates their birthday during the voyage and becomes of age to consume alcohol while on the cruise, the guest may thereafter ask the Guest Relations Manager to modify the ship’s records to permit their consumption of alcohol during the remainder of the vacation. The guest will be required to appear at the Guest Relations Desk to present a valid government-issued form of identification to verify their age.
Guests are not permitted to bring alcoholic beverages onboard; with the exception of embarkation day when each guest (of legal drinking age) is permitted to bring onboard up to two (2) bottles of wine (which are subject to a corkage fee) per guest. A corkage fee does not apply to guests with the Classic Beverage Package or Premium Beverage Package. Security may inspect containers (including water bottles, soda bottles, mouthwash, canteens, etc.) at any time and will dispose of alcohol concealed in such containers. Alcoholic beverages that are purchased from onboard shops or in ports of call (which must be presented to security upon re-boarding), will be secured by ship's personnel. Alcohol secured by ship's personnel will be returned to guests just prior to the conclusion of their cruise vacation. Guests who are under the permitted drinking age will not have alcohol returned to them.
Alcoholic beverages that are purchased from onboard shops or in ports of call must be presented to Security upon re-boarding and will be secured by the ship’s personnel. Alcohol secured by the ship’s personnel will be returned to guests just prior to the conclusion of their cruise vacation. Guests who are under the permitted drinking age will not have alcohol returned to them.
Any guest who goes ashore and consumes alcohol (whether under the supervision of a parent/guardian or not) is responsible for ensuring they consume responsibly and retain the ability to recognize and avoid potentially dangerous situations when they return to the ship. Parents/guardians are reminded they are responsible for the actions of their minor and young adult children at all times while on a Celebrity cruise vacation.
DURING SECURITY SCREENINGS WE MAY INSPECT ANY GUEST BELONGINGS AND MAY REMOVE PROHIBITED ITEMS OUTSIDE OF THE GUEST’S PRESENCE. CONFISCATED ITEMS NOT CLAIMED BY GUESTS WITHIN 15 CALENDAR DAYS OF CONFISCATION SHALL BE DEEMED FORFEITED AND MAY BE DISPOSED OF BY ROYAL CARIBBEAN GROUP.
Items with Heating Elements or Open Flames
Certain items that generate heat or produce an open flame are not permitted onboard. This includes clothing irons, hotplates, candles, incense, and any other item that may create a fire hazard. Curling irons and hair dryers are allowed.
Marijuana, even in its medicinal form or for medicinal purposes, is prohibited.
Drugs or Other Illegal Substances Prohibited
Illegal drugs and other illegal substances are neither allowed onboard nor permitted to be used during a Celebrity Cruises vacation, including during transfers to and from ships, inside terminals, while onboard, at ports of call, during shore excursions, and at our private destinations. Illegal drugs and substances will be confiscated, and Celebrity Cruises reserves the right to, at its discretion, report violations of this nature to the appropriate authorities. Jurisdictions traveled through during the voyage may have strict laws that address and severely punish drug possession. Guests found in violation of such laws are subject to arrest and prosecution in the relevant jurisdiction, including United States or other relevant authorities, and may be prevented from boarding or re-boarding the ship.
Weapons, Explosives or Other Dangerous Items Prohibited
A detailed list of prohibited items is located on our website(s) and incorporated by reference.
No weapon, ammunition, explosive, firework, or other item that presents a risk of harm to persons and/or property is permitted onboard. The determination regarding items constituting a risk of harm to persons and/or property is left solely to the discretion of Celebrity Cruises. Items not permitted onboard will be confiscated by the ship’s Security.
Firearms and other weapons are not allowed onboard. Guests who declare, to the ship’s personnel, the presence of a firearm or other weapon on their person or in their luggage will be given the opportunity to dispose of it prior to boarding. Guests who fail to declare the presence of a firearm or other weapon may be denied boarding or removed from the ship. Items such as dive knives must be reported to the ship’s personnel at the time of boarding. Such items may be permitted onboard but held in safe custody by the ship's Security staff when not in use ashore.
Save the Waves® Program and Trash/Waste Disposal
Celebrity Cruises maintains a Save the Waves® Program that focuses on three key principles: reducing the creation and generation of waste materials; recycling as much as possible; and ensuring proper disposal of remaining waste. Trash should be properly disposed of in the containers provided throughout the ship or in the wastebaskets provided in each stateroom. Trash and other foreign objects should never be flushed down a toilet, and guests are not permitted to discard any item overboard. Guests may not leave items unattended on balconies, as the wind may cause items to fall overboard.
Guests must be at least 18 years of age to gamble in the casinos onboard our ships, except for in Alaska where the minimum age is 21. Various venues and activities onboard the ships have minimum age requirements. Guest may visit our website or inquire at the Guest Relations Desk to learn more about these age requirements.
