What to Expect at Embarkation & Onboard Protocols

Celebrity Cruises’ ‘Healthy at Sea’ protocol state that 'safe vacations start with prevention'. Prior to boarding, all guests need to complete a health questionnaire, and guests ages 12 years and older must present proof of vaccination before sailing. 

Guests ages 2 –11 who are not fully vaccinated will be required to take a complimentary antigen test at the terminal. In addition, all guests (regardless of vaccination status) must present a negative COVID-19 test at embarkation. This test can be taken as a PCR test or Antigen test, conducted within two days of boarding the ship. 

In some homeport countries, testing may be required for all guests regardless of vaccination status. An additional test will be administered onboard, free of charge if needed for home country re-entry.
