For US residents cruising from US ports

COVID-19 testing is one of our tools for making sure that guests and crew stay healthy. Every guest of two (2) years and older will need to complete a test in the days before their cruise, at their own expense. Find out more about the tests that will be needed for your cruise

There are a few different options available for completing the test, including some services that we’ve arranged to make pre-cruise testing easier for you.

Let’s figure out which test option works best for you.

How it works

Pre-cruise test options for unvaccinated kids

According to US CDC guidance, unvaccinated kids in the family cannot yet use all the testing options available for vaccinated guests, such as telehealth testing. We are working to find more solutions for kids' testing. For now, the children in your family will need to visit an outside provider to secure their test.

Go with your own test provider
