We’re sailing with fewer guests for more space—and more luxury. Our enhanced cleaning and sanitization protocols and enhanced medical center set a new industry standard.
HVAC system continuously supplies and filters 100% fresh, filtered air to all spaces. You can breathe easy knowing the robust system’s layers of protection make the transmission of aerosol particles between spaces extremely low to virtually impossible.
To minimize COVID-19-related health risks to you, our crew members, and the communities we visit, we monitor the ports of call on your itinerary regularly. We consider several factors when determining if it's safe to leave the ship and go ashore – the prevalence of COVID-19 in the area, whether testing is available, and how easy it is for the locals to get vaccinated.
We've made our high-quality onboard medical care stronger than ever, with more doctors and nurses on each ship and state-of-the-art equipment enhancements. And in the event of a suspected case of COVID-19, we're fully prepared with medical evaluations, rapid testing, more critical care on each ship and a safe and prompt return home.
We’re with you every step of the way no matter where in the world you travel with us. Should you test positive for COVID-19 onboard during your cruise, Celebrity Cruises is there to support you with onboard medical treatment; assistance with any needs for a land-based hotel or commercial flights home; and, in medically necessary situations, private air transfer home for you and your traveling party.
