SINGAPORE, 10 August 2022: Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings revised its SailSAFE health and safety protocols this week, aligning the company to the broader travel, leisure and hospitality industry.

Vaccinated guests aged 12 and over will no longer have pre-cruise Covid-19-related protocols. Unvaccinated guests may embark with a negative Covid-19 test taken within 72 hours before departure, subject to local regulations.

The new policy goes live across Norwegian Cruise Line, Oceania Cruises and Regent Seven Seas fleets for all sailings starting 3 September 2022.

Requirements may differ for guests travelling on voyages departing from or visiting destinations with specific local regulations, including but not limited to Canada, Greece and Bermuda.

“Our long-awaited revisions to our testing and vaccination requirements bring us closer in line with the rest of society, which has learned to adapt and live with Covid-19, and makes it simpler and easier for our loyal guests to cruise on our three best-in-class brands,” said Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd president and chief executive officer Frank Del Rio.
