American Cruise Lines

American Cruise Lines strongly encourage guests to get a COVID-19 vaccine prior to travel. Guests with a vaccine must still comply with the American Cruise Lines Operating Protocol which includes testing and mask-wearing.

Fully vaccinated guests are not required to obtain a COVID-19 test prior to travelling to the ship and will be asked to present proof of the vaccine (i.e. vaccination card) at the time of boarding. A guest is considered fully vaccinated two weeks after receiving the last recommended dose of vaccine.

Guests who are not fully vaccinated must take a COVID-19 test 4 days before their cruise. Only molecular test results (such as a NAAT or PCR test) will be accepted. Guests are asked to submit their test results to American Cruise Lines and present the result at the time of boarding.
