Will I have to take a SARS-CoV-2 test before or during my cruise departing from Southampton


Travel requirements are fast evolving and vary depending on the port and country of departure.  It is likely that a rapid polymerase chain reaction (rt-PCR) test for SARS-CoV-2 will be required prior to boarding and obtain a negative result.  Please visit our Getting Ready to Cruise page for testing requirements pertaining to your sailing. Communication will be sent to all booked guests in the 30 days before setting sail, to share the latest requirements for each departure port. Be sure to download the Royal Caribbean app, and update the contact information within the app profile, so that we know how to reach each guest.


The protocols communicated here apply only to guests departing from Southampton, England on Anthem of the Seas®. We will continue to update these protocols as public health situations evolve. Guidance for all other departure ports is still in development with federal, state and local authorities. Booked guests will be provided full details specific to their port of departure prior to sailing.
