Dear Valued Travel Partner,
We look forward to welcoming your clients aboard Celebrity Cruises soon. We would like you to provide an additional reminder to your clients regarding Celebrity Cruises enhanced COVID-19 testing requirements advised by the CDC for both vaccinated and unvaccinated guests.
As of September 13, 2021, all vaccinated guests are required to present a negative COVID-19 test at the time of embarkation. This test may be taken as either a PCR test or an Antigen test, conducted within two days of boarding the vessel. Each guest is responsible for making their own arrangements with an accredited testing provider as well as covering all associated costs.
Unvaccinated children between the ages of two and eleven years old will be required to bring a negative PCR test conducted within three days of boarding. These guests will have an additional PCR test at the terminal prior to embarkation and on the day before disembarkation. A registration link for required testing will be sent separately. Should a guest be unable to complete the testing requirements, a 100% refund or Future Cruise Credit will be offered.
For your client’s convenience we are working on an option with an authorized medical provider to offer home-test kits for vaccinated guests. This testing option will be available to purchase on our website September 8, 2021 and can be delivered to your client’s home in two days to make their testing process quick and seamless. For more information regarding our testing requirements visit our Healthy at Sea webpage here. Guests arriving at the terminal without a negative COVID-19 test result may be denied boarding.
We apologize for any inconvenience. The health and safety of everyone onboard is our number one priority. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Celebrity Cruises at 1-844-418-6824 in North America or (316) 554-5961 worldwide.
