August 23, 2022 - Beginning September 5, all guests, regardless of vaccination status, may board provided they meet local testing requirements -
Test guidelines simplified: Self-tests are now also allowed.
Celebrity Cruises has updated its Corona requirements so that everyone can cruise again. Vaccination will no longer be required for passengers who begin their cruise in a European or US port. From September 5, passengers departing from ports in Europe (Barcelona, Civitavecchia / Rome, Ravenna, Amsterdam and Southampton) as well as ports in the USA, including Los Angeles, Miami and Fort Lauderdale — the home port of most Celebrity Cruises Caribbean tours — no longer provide proof of coronavirus vaccination provided they meet all local testing requirements.
Simplified testing guidelines
Before guests board, they must comply with the following testing requirements for departures from Europe and the United States:
- Guests who have been vaccinated at least twice will no longer need to be tested to board cruises departing from European and US ports. This applies to all cruises XNUMX days or less (excluding cruises calling at Canada and Bermuda).
- Guests who are not fully vaccinated will need a negative test result to board. A simple, unsupervised, self-administered test is also now accepted here for all cruises (excluding cruises visiting Australia, New Zealand, Bermuda, Canada or Greece).
- Children under 5 years of age departing from the US and guests under 12 years of age embarking from Europe are not required to be tested prior to boarding.
requirements in other countries
While Celebrity Cruises has dropped vaccination requirements, sailings to and from ports in Canada, Australia and New Zealand require all guests 12 years and older to be fully vaccinated to meet country-specific requirements. Guests 3 years and older must be vaccinated on Galapagos cruises.
