Notice to Guests Regarding Advice from U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)
The CDC cautions that any travel poses a higher risk of contracting COVID-19 and advises that travel to more than 150 countries presents a very high risk in addition to cruises. This is especially important for people with an increased risk of severe illness, such as older adults and those with certain underlying medical conditions. The CDC’s travel advisories, warnings and recommendations should be reviewed by guests at https://wwwnc.cdc.gov/travel/notices/covid-4/coronavirus-cruise-ship. If a threshold of COVID-19 is detected on board the vessel, the voyage will be ended, the vessel will return to the port of embarkation, and your subsequent travel home may be restricted or delayed. Health and safety protocols, guest conduct rules, and regional travel restrictions vary by vessel and destination and are subject to change without notice.
