Celestyal drops proof of vaccination & recovery requirements

ATHENS — Celestyal Cruises has announced the immediate removal of its proof of COVID-19 vaccination or recovery policy.

Effective immediately, Celestyal guests are no longer required to provide proof of valid vaccination or recovery certificates to board their ships. However, guests are still required to test for COVID-19 ahead of their cruise for the remainder of the 2022 season. Pre-embarkation testing is accepted either with a rapid antigen test taken up to 48 hours before boarding, or with a PCR test taken up to 72 hours before boarding.

As previously announced, guests on all Celestyal sailings commencing on or after March 2, 2023 will no longer require a pre-embarkation COVID-19 test or proof of valid vaccination or recovery certificates unless required by local regulations.

All Celestyal crew members will continue to be fully vaccinated and the company encourages guests aged 12 and over to also be fully vaccinated.

“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 Celestyal’s chief commercial officer, Leslie Peden. “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 Greek health authorities. We look forward to welcoming all guests for the immersive experience that we are known for and to exploring the unique destinations of the Greek Islands and Eastern Mediterranean.”
