Celestyal Scraps COVID-19 Protocols for 2023 Season

Celestyal Cruises has announced the removal of its COVID-19 vaccination, proof of COVID recovery and pre-departure testing requirements for all guests on voyages commencing on or after March 2, 2023, unless required by local regulations.

All Celestyal crew members will continue to be fully vaccinated, and the company encourages guests aged 12 and above to be fully vaccinated. Regardless of vaccination status, the line will continue to recommend that all guests get tested at their convenience prior to travel in order to ensure a comfortable and enjoyable travel experience. Travelers will no longer be required to produce test results to board Celestyal’s ships. Throughout the remainder of this year, the cruise line will maintain current, relaxed protocols, which were previously announced.

“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,” said Leslie Peden, chief commercial officer of Celestyal Cruises. “Our crew will continue to maintain our stringent hygiene protocols based upon the most up-to-date guidelines from the European Healthy Gateways, Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) and Greek health authorities. We look forward to welcoming all guests for the immersive experience that we are known for as we explore the unique destinations of the Greek Islands and Eastern Mediterranean.”

The line’s health and safety measures are continuously evaluated and adjusted based on new and updated prevention, therapeutics and mitigation measures.
