Health & Safety

Please note that the following health and safety protocols are set by Carnival Cruise Lines. These policies are updated frequently and may change again before our October 2023 sailing. Full and up to date info on Carnival’s policies can be read on Carnival’s website. Additional details can be found on Carnivals FAQ page

Current Carnival policies no longer require Covid 19 vaccination or proof of testing. Carnival reserves the right to change these policies at any time and all guests are expected to follow these policies as written at the time of sailing. All guests will be notified of any changes to Carnival’s health and safety policies.

Please check back frequently for updates.

Carnival has the right to deny boarding to any guests who tests positive for COVID on site, as well as any other health or safety reason. There are no refunds for denial of boarding for any reason. 

Current Carnival policies do not include masking and distancing but may change prior to sailing if conditions require it. 

Carnival has implemented a comprehensive set of protocols, with the best interests of the health and safety of all guests, crew as a number one priority. Even with these protocols in place, there may be positive COVID-19 cases on board during your cruise. Carnival ships have medical centers with capabilities for diagnosis and testing and are equipped for contact tracing. Carnival’s crew is fully vaccinated and wears masks indoors at all times. Given these protocols, positive cases are far below what communities are experiencing shoreside. However, it is important that you are aware of the following information:
In the event guests are in close contact with or exposed to any guest or crew member who tests positive for COVID-19, or display any symptoms for a COVID-like illness during the cruise, they and their close contacts will be required to undergo additional testing and may be required to quarantine in their stateroom until our medical team determines it is safe for them to resume their cruise activities.

If guests traveled by air to join their cruise and test positive at embarkation and are not able to cruise — or test positive during the cruise — they and their close contacts may be required to quarantine before traveling home.
