Health Protocols and Requirements

Canada requires arriving travelers to complete an entry form prior to arrival. The form can be found here.

  • If you are flying to Canada to begin your cruise, you must enter your vaccination/test results prior to your flight’s arrival in Canada.
  • If you will be entering a Canadian port on your cruise that begins in the U.S., you must enter your vaccination/test results prior to debarking in any Canadian port.

 

Vaccination Policy to Sail

As of May 5, 2022, all guests ages 12 and older must be fully vaccinated with last primary dose administered at least 14 days prior to embarkation.

COVID-19 booster vaccine shots are not currently required to sail on Celebrity Cruises but are highly recommended to avoid additional testing and costs at your expense throughout the sailing.

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
  • Covaxin

Any guest who has received one dose of a vaccine (other than Johnson & Johnson) will not be considered fully vaccinated.

Documentation of full vaccination must be provided at the terminal as a condition for boarding.

Guests who have recently recovered from COVID-19 may present a Certificate of Recovery and proof of the positive PCR test result taken between 11-90 days prior to the sail date in order to board. We will not accept a Certificate of Recovery in place of a vaccination record. Please be aware that some ports of call do not accept a Certificate of Recovery for the purposes of debarking and enjoying the destination. We will not accept a Certificate of Recovery in place of a vaccination record.

 

Re-Entry (to home country)

Please check your country's re-entry requirements for specific testing information. Effective, June 12, 2022, all U.S. air passengers, regardless of vaccination status, will not need to present a negative COVID-19 test to return to the United States.

Any other nationalities, please check your country's re-entry requirements for specific testing information.

 

Pre-Arrival Testing Options

Monitored Self-Test Kit - Abbott Binaxnow™ COVID-19 AG Card

While approved self-test kits are now readily available at drugstore chains in the United States, we are also pleased to make them available for order pre-cruise. We suggest that you order them at least one full week 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. Your results are typically ready in about 15 minutes. The cost for COVID-19 test kits may be covered by your health insurance plan.  Please check with your insurance provider for coverage benefits.

For guests 2 years of age and under, masks are not required. 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.
