Will I require travel insurance for my cruise departing from Florida in 2021?


For cruises departing from Florida homeports from August 1 through December 31, 2021, as a condition of boarding, each unvaccinated guest 12 or older must provide proof of a valid travel insurance policy that has a minimum of (a) $25,000 per person in medical expense coverage and (b) $50,000 coverage for emergency medical evacuation and no COVID-19 exclusions. 

The insurance policy must name the unvaccinated guest as the policy holder or beneficiary, and may be purchased from a travel insurance company of the guest’s choosing or through the Royal Caribbean Travel Protection Program, which includes the requisite coverage.

This policy applies to sailings from August 1 through December 31, 2021, and all bookings — except bookings made between March 19, 2021 and June 28, 2021.

Guests that purchase insurance from a provider other than the Royal Caribbean Travel Protection Plan need to bring a printed version of the insurance policy, showing the name of each of the covered unvaccinated guest(s) and a description of the coverage in the policy. This documentation will be reviewed by our staff at the terminal, prior to boarding. Guests that purchase coverage from Royal Caribbean do not need to present these documents as this information will be included on your reservation and visible to the terminal agent.   

To be considered fully vaccinated, guests must receive their final dose of the vaccine at least 14 days before sailing and provide documentation such as the U.S. Centers for Disease Control COVID-19 vaccination card. Guests who do not or cannot provide proof of vaccination will be considered unvaccinated and subject to these terms.
