The new policy will be in place from March 2023
Celestyal Cruises is to remove its vaccination and pre-departure testing requirements for all passengers sailing from 1 March 2023, unless required by local regulations.
While the line will continue to encourage guests aged 12 and above to be inoculated against Covid-19 and take a PCR test prior to travel, these actions will no longer be compulsory. Passengers won't even need to provide proof of Covid-19 recovery. However, all crew will continue to be fully vaccinated.
Chief commercial officer Leslie Peden said: “The health and safety of our guests, crew and the communities we serve is our top priority and we continue to monitor and adjust to the evolving global situation.
“Our crew will continue to maintain our stringent hygiene protocols based upon the most up-to-date guidelines from the European Healthy Gateways, Clia and the Greek health authorities.
“We look forward to welcoming guests for the immersive experience that we are known for and to exploring the unique destinations of the Greek Islands and Eastern Mediterranean.”
