Absolutely! We welcome guests to cruise on as many back-to-back cruises as they wish. The travel requirements and health protocols, such as pre-cruise testing, may vary based on your departure port and vaccination status. We will continue to evaluate these policies as public health guidance evolves.
For guests departing from a North American homeport on consecutive sailings on the same ship
You will need to meet any travel requirements that are in place for the first cruise in your series. See requirements by homeport.
For most North American consecutive cruises, testing will not be required on subsequent sailings, regardless of vaccination status, the duration of those sailings, or the total duration of your cruise series.
There are some exceptions: If your subsequent cruise visits Canada or Bermuda, you will need to complete a test before that sailing commences. Guest Services will contact your before the sailing to arrange for that testing.

For guests departing from a European homeport on consecutive sailings on the same ship
Vaccinated guests who are considered up to date and guests with a valid certificate of recovery do not require additional testing to board their subsequent sailing. Guests who are not vaccinated or those considered not up to date will require a new precruise test prior to boarding their subsequent sailing.

For guests departing from Singapore on consecutive sailings on the same ship
We welcome guests to cruise on as many back-to-back cruises as they wish, including kids. The travel requirements and health protocols are the same as a single cruise, and back-to-back cruisers will need to meet all those requirements. For subsequent cruises, the "pre-cruise test" requirement is fulfilled by an ART test between cruises. All guests, regardless of vaccination status, are required to take an ART test producing negative results between each sailing. This test will be arranged by Royal Caribbean at no expense to the guest. Visit Guest Services while onboard to arrange this test ahead of your next cruise. We will continue to evaluate this policy as public health guidance evolves.
For guests who are switching ships or have a day or more in between subsequent sailings
If you are moving to a different ship for your subsequent sailing, you will need to meet the precruise testing requirements. If the time until your next sailing does not exceed a day, you may visit Guest Services onboard for complimentary testing to satisfy the requirements for your next cruise.
To be considered back-to-back, the time between sailings must not exceed 1 day. This means your subsequent sailing must depart on the same day or the following day your preceding cruise disembarks. For example, if Sailing A disembarks on Monday, Sailing B must embark on Monday or Tuesday to be considered back-to-back. Guests whose sailings are not considered back-to-back will be responsible for procuring their own COVID-19 test at their own expense to meet the precruise testing requirements for the subsequent sailing.
