ATHENS, GREECE — After easing its COVID-19 protocols for the remainder of the 2022 season, Celestyal has announced that it will be removing these same protocols for the 2023 season.
Starting March 2, 2023, guests will no longer be required to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination, proof of COVID-19 recovery or take a pre-departure COVID-19 test, unless required by local regulations.
All Celestyal crew members will continue to be fully vaccinated, and the cruise line encourages guests aged 12 and over to also be fully vaccinated. Regardless of vaccination status, Celestyal will continue to recommend that all guests get tested at their convenience prior to travel. Testing results will no longer be required to board Celestyal’s ships.
“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, 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.”
For the remainder of 2022, Celestyal will be maintaining its current protocols, which were eased last month and went into effect on Aug. 26. These eased measures include the ability to test up to 72 hours prior to embarkation, and the elimination of mandatory masking.
