Vaccine and testing policy

Correct as of 10 May 2023

There are currently no vaccination or pre-cruise testing requirements for any voyages outside of Australia and New Zealand.

This policy is currently under review for our Australia and New Zealand voyages, due to recommence in Autumn 2023. If you are sailing on one of these voyages, please ensure you check these pages nearer to your sailing date for the most up to date information.

While Covid-19 vaccinations are no longer required for Cunard voyages, we still highly recommend that all guests travelling on our ships are up to date with Covid-19 vaccinations and boosters if eligible and where available.

If you're displaying any symptoms of Covid-19 or feel unwell in the days leading up to your voyage, we highly recommend that you take a Covid-19 test before you travel and only travel to the ship if this is negative. If you’re symptomatic on the day of embarkation, we ask that you declare this to terminal or check-in staff. Guests who test positive within 7 days of sailing will not be allowed to embark.

Our vaccination and testing policy and on board protocols are reviewed on a regular basis and may be changed at any time. Where there are changes to the requirements for a voyage, impacted guests will be contacted directly in advance of travel. Also, at the time of travel, some ports of call may stipulate specific vaccine or testing policies for guests going ashore that differ from the Cunard vaccination and testing policy; refer to our Destination entry requirements guide for details.

During your voyage it is your responsibility to meet all entry requirements for that country at the time of sailing. Please check the government website of the country you are travelling to and ensure you are aware of the most up-to-date country requirements, as we can’t accept responsibility if you are denied entry to a country because you don’t meet its entry requirements.
