TRAVEL NOTICE

TRAVEL NOTICE:

Before booking your 2-night cruise to Grand Bahama Island or your Cruise & Stay package, please consult all applicable U.S. Centers for Disease Control travel advisories, warnings, or recommendations relating to cruise travel, at cdc.gov/travel. If a certain threshold level of COVID-19 is detected onboard the ship during your voyage, the voyage will end immediately, the ship will return to the port of embarkation, and your subsequent travel, including your return home, could be restricted, or delayed. Due to evolving health protocols, imagery and messaging may not accurately reflect onboard and destination experiences, offerings, features, or itineraries.

  • If you are eligible, get fully vaccinated for COVID-19. Wait 2 weeks after getting your second vaccine dose to travel—it takes time for your body to build protection after any vaccination.
  • People who decide to go on a cruise should get tested at least 48 hours before the trip
  • Do not board a cruise if you are sick, if you know you have COVID-19, or if you were exposed to a person with COVID-19 in the past 14 days.
  • Cruise passengers are at increased risk of the person-to-person spread of infectious diseases, including COVID-19.
  • Discuss cruise ship travel with your healthcare provider. Older adults and people of any age with underlying medical conditions are at increased risk of severe illness if infected with the virus that causes COVID-19.
  • Stay at least 6 feet/2 meters (about 2 arm lengths) from anyone who is not traveling with you. It is important to do this everywhere—both indoors and outdoors.
  • Wear a mask to keep your nose and mouth covered when you are in shared spaces, including when using public transportation.
  • Wash your hands often or use hand sanitizer (with at least 60% alcohol).
  • Avoid contact with anyone who is sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Do not travel if you are sick.
  • If you get sick with symptoms of COVID-19, stay in your stateroom, and notify the onboard medical center immediately.
  • If a threshold of COVID-19 is detected onboard the ship, the voyage will be ended immediately, and the ship will return to the port of embarkation. Your subsequent travel home may be restricted or delayed. Passengers who decide to travel are advised to take the following precautions to protect others for 14 days after their return from a cruise ship voyage:
  • Get tested 3–5 days after your trip and stay home for 7 days after travel.
  • Even if you test negative, stay home for the full 7 days.
  • If your test is positive, isolate yourself to protect others from getting infected.
  • If you do not get tested, it is safest to stay home for 14 days after travel.
  • Avoid being around people who are at increased risk for severe illness for 14 days, whether you get tested or not.

Passengers should take the following steps to protect others after their return from a cruise ship voyage:

  • If you are fully vaccinated:
    • Get tested 3–5 days after your trip.
    • If your test is positive, isolate yourself to protect others from getting infected.
    • Self-monitor for COVID-19 symptoms for 14 days after travel; isolate and get tested if you develop symptoms.
    • You do NOT need to stay home and self-quarantine after cruise travel.
  • If you are not fully vaccinated:
    • Get tested 3–5 days after your trip.
    • If your test is positive, isolate yourself to protect others from getting infected.
    • Self-monitor for COVID-19 symptoms for 14 days after travel; isolate and get tested if you develop symptoms.
    • Stay home and self-quarantine for 7 days after cruise travel, even if you test negative.
    • If you do not get tested, stay home and self-quarantine for 10 days after cruise travel.
    • Avoid being around people who are at increased risk for severe illness for 14 days, whether you get tested or not.
  • If you recently recovered from COVID-19:
    • If you tested positive for COVID-19 in the past 3 months and met the criteria to end isolation, you do NOT need to get tested before or after cruise travel unless you are symptomatic. CDC has found that people can continue to test positive for up to 3 months after they had COVID-19 and not be infectious to others.
    • You also do NOT need to self-quarantine after cruise travel.
  • Always follow state and local recommendations or requirements related to travel.

The above warnings and recommendations above are subject to change without notice. For updated information refer to CDC’s website near the time of your cruise.
