All guests must ensure that they are medically and physically fit for travel. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO) provide guidelines as to which vaccinations are required in each country. In many cases inoculations are recommended, but in some circumstances, they are required by the country from which your cruise departs or countries we visit. We recommend that you check with your health care professional or a Travel Medicine Specialist certified by the WHO for guidance. Other informational resources can be accessed on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention traveler's health website or by calling toll-free (877) FYI-TRIP and on the World Health Organization website.
COVID-19 Vaccination is no longer required to sail, with a few exceptions. At this time, only the following sailings have COVID-19 vaccination requirements:
Guests age 12 and older must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 in order to sail:
Vaccines that are fully approved or authorized for emergency use by the World Health Organization (with the exception of CanSino), and the European Medicines Agency (EMA), will be accepted by the ports we sail to. For guests sailing from Australia, vaccines must be approved by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA).
To be considered fully vaccinated by the countries we visit:
A guest is considered fully vaccinated 14 days after the required number of doses in their vaccine series have been fully administered (e.g. 2 shots of Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca, etc., or 1 shot of Johnson & Johnson). Vaccines must be approved for use by the country they are sailing from.
We strongly recommend that fully vaccinated guests also get a booster dose when they become eligible to do so.
