Royal Caribbean’s Protocols for a healthy return to sea

Last Update: 11/02/2022

Vaccination, Testing, and Travel Document Requirements

Vaccination Policy: All guests welcome, regardless of vaccination status. We recommend that guests be fully vaccinated and boostered against COVID‐19. While vaccination is not required, we kindly ask you disclose your status during check-in. 

Testing Policy: Effective November 2, 2022, all travelers on U.S. sailings — regardless of vaccination status — will no longer require pre-departure testing.

Please note that Royal Caribbean’s travel requirements and health protocols are constantly evolving according to CDC recommendations and government requirements and are subject to change at any time.

All crew onboard the ship and at Perfect Day at CocoCay, are fully vaccinated. 

Onboard the Ship – Mask Guidance (subject to change):

Masks are currently optional and not required on-board the ship.

What if I book a cruise, protocols change, and I can’t sail because I am not vaccinated?

Protocols for each sailing are confirmed, via email and on our website, no less than 30 days before you sail. Should Royal Caribbean update the protocols for your sailing and you are unable to travel due to your vaccination status, Royal Caribbean will provide a refund. Please note: Refunds are NOT available for guests that fail to present the required documentation at check-in or for any other reason. We highly recommend travel insurance to protect yourself and your vacation investment.
