What to Expect at Embarkation
Vaccinated guests will be required to provide a negative PCR test for Covid-19 taken no more than 2 days before arriving in The Bahamas and present it upon check-in. Vaccinated guests will not require any other pre-cruise testing.
Unvaccinated guests will be required to take three tests:
- Unvaccinated guests need to undergo a PCR test for Covid-19 no more than five days prior to your arrival into The Bahamas and present negative test results at check-in on boarding day. Costs associated with this test are the guest’s responsibility. Guests 12 years and older will also need to submit the negative PCR test for Covid-19 result as part of the Bahamas Health Visa online application process and provide proof upon arrival in the airport.
- On boarding day, guests will take a complimentary antigen test at the British Colonial Hilton Nassau, where check-in will take place. Registration details will be sent via email about 2 weeks before departure.
- A final complimentary test will take place onboard on Day 5 or 6 as required for re-entry into The Bahamas. This test may also be used for entry into one’s home country, if needed.
Royal Caribbean has announced that all cruises sailing from U.S. ports from Sept. 13 onward will now require all guests over 2 (regardless of vaccine status) to provide proof of a negative COVID test administered no more than 3 days prior to the sail date. Guests must arrange this test at their own expense.

This was one of the nicest cruises I have taken in the past 20 years. I found the staff to be friendly and helpful and the food and service to be outstanding. I’d recommend this cruise to both new and experienced cruisers. - cmbackhus

Fun and relaxing!!! Will recommend this cruise line. Staff was very nice and accommodating. - naomigriffin
With so much to see and do in the ports which Adventure of the Seas will visit, be sure to book shore excursions as early as possible. Spend your day in port exploring, at the beach, on an adventure, or doing a city tour. Save money, and be guaranteed to return to the ship on time when you book with Shore Excursion Group.
Perfect Day at CocoCay - Perfect Day is Royal Caribbean’s own private island in the Bahamas. The destination is jam-packed with so many activities and adventures that you will have a hard time deciding what to do first! The island’s amenities received a rehaul in 2019, so most of the activities you will find are relatively new.
