Island News

Vaccinated guests age 5 and older will continue to provide evidence of their vaccination status prior to embarkation. Guests who do not meet the definition of fully vaccinated, or do not provide proof of vaccination, must present the results of a negative PCR or antigen test taken within three days of embarkation (or as required by destinations on the itinerary).

Guests are considered fully vaccinated if they have received their final dose of an approved COVID-19 vaccine at least 14 days prior to the sailing day (not counting embarkation day) and have proof of vaccination.

Boosters may be required for specific voyages based on duration or destination requirements and guests will be advised accordingly.

Vaccinated guests (with proof of vaccination) – are not required to take a pre cruise test except on cruises of 16 nights or longer or when required by a destination.

Unvaccinated guests – guests age 5 years and older will have to present the negative results of a PCR or antigen test taken no earlier than 3 days before sailing or when required by a destination. For example: if a PCR test is required 3 days before sailing, the test may be taken as early as Wednesday for a cruise departing on Saturday.

In addition to lab administered tests, self-testing is accepted for unvaccinated guests on cruises 15 nights and shorter.
Bermuda does not accept unsupervised pre-cruise tests.

If the test taken is supervised by a medical professional, guests can show the negative result in the form of a printout, an email, or an app screen from the test provider.
On voyages where destinations accept self-testing, guests can provide a picture of their negative home test or present the actual negative test itself at embarkation.
Guests who self-test should write their name and test date on a piece of paper, place the negative test on the paper, and take a photograph of this on a mobile device. Please be prepared to show the image if required. Guests can choose, instead, to have a viral test taken or supervised by a trained person with written evidence of result.

Testing Requirements for Bermuda and Cruises of 16 Nights or More (unsupervised self-tests are not accepted) - UPDATED 09/26/22
Bermuda: Vaccinated guests age 2 years and older, and unvaccinated children ages 2-11 travelling with fully vaccinated parents/guardians, have to present a PCR test taken 4 days before sailing or an antigen test within 2 days. Unvaccinated guests 12 and older may take a PCR or antigen test within 2 days before sailing. Guests may be subject to additional testing on board which will be provided on a complimentary basis.
Cruises of 16 nights or more: All guests age 5 years and older have to present a PCR or antigen test taken within 3 days before sailing.
Guests who arrive at embarkation without the required pre-cruise test may be denied boarding and no refund will be provided.
