Celebrity Cruises has extended their health protocols through May 31, 2022 for U.S. departures.

For cruises on Celebrity Apex, Celebrity Constellation, Celebrity Edge, Celebrity Equinox, Celebrity Millennium Celebrity Reflection, Celebrity Silhouette and Celebrity Summit, all vaccinated guests are required to present a negative COVID-19 test result at the time of embarkation. This test may be taken as either as an Antigen or PCR test, conducted within two days of boarding the vessel.

Unvaccinated children between the ages of two and eleven years old, will be required to bring a negative PCR test conducted within three days of boarding. These guests will be provided given an additional COVID-19 Antigen test at the terminal prior to embarkation and on the day before disembarkation.

Celebrity Cruises is also accepting a Certificate of Recovery. However, this is not in place of a vaccination record. All guests eligible to be vaccinated must also continue to show proof of full vaccination, with the final dose of their vaccine administered at least 14 days prior to sailing.

A Certificate of Recovery, for a positive COVID-19 case at least 11 days before boarding but no more than 90 days prior to boarding, may be provided in lieu of a pre-cruise COVID-19 test result to board the ship, provided the Certificate meets the requirements below.

  • On an official letterhead
  • The provider’s name
  • The provider’s address
  • The provider’s phone number
  • Confirmation of your recovery and completion of isolation
  • Be typed (not handwritten) and signed by the provider

Celebrity Cruises has noted that pre-cruise testing may continue throughout 2022.

All of Celebrity Cruises’ health protocols can be found on their website or by contacting your local travel professional.
