Correct as of 19 December 2022.

We’d like to remind you that it's important to stay up to date with the latest health and well-being policies and protocols for your voyage, in addition to the latest travel requirements. It is your responsibility to organise and complete all documentation and testing requirements if required, therefore please ensure you are aware of, and compliant with, the latest guidance for travelling to and/or from your port of embarkation and return home. The guidance may change with little warning.

Our testing policy varies by voyage. To check which category your voyage falls into please check your voyage number here

Please note, we have only categorised voyages departing up to and including 1 March 2023  on Queen Victoria and Queen Elizabeth and up to and including 21 March 2023 for voyages departing on Queen Mary 2.

The vaccination and testing policy for voyages departing after these dates will be published in due course. Although it may change, it is our intention that voyages from 23 April onwards on-board Queen Victoria and Queen Mary 2 and voyages from 8 June on board Queen Elizabeth will not require guests to be vaccinated unless there are specific country or voyage requirements in place at the time of sailing.

On board well-being measures.

Our ambition remains to return to normal as soon as we possibly can, however due to the length of certain voyages and the destinations we visit, our protocols for sailing do still differ from what you may experience ashore.

Certain voyages may require guests to wear a face mask and have additional testing once on board. 

Passenger locator forms.

Some countries currently require additional documentation for anyone travelling to, from or through cruise ports.

Currently, PLFs are required for guests visiting Singapore and there are pre-arrival requirements for guests visiting Indonesia. If this applies to your voyage, please visit our webpage for helpful guidance on where and how to complete the form.
