On all Expeditions:
  • Pre-testing is not required for guests.

  • Hand sanitizing dispensers are placed throughout the ship for guests’ convenience.
  • Our attentive housekeeping staff will frequently sanitize all surfaces daily.


Every port destination has a separate requirement for:

  • Testing, health certificates, proof of inoculation and/or vaccinations, and these can change periodically.
  • Please make sure to research the requirements of each destination you are visiting to ensure you are compliant.
  • Also, please check with your local health department or private health care professional for any inoculations or vaccinations you may require. Visit to find your destinations’ specific vaccination requirements.
  • Guests are responsible for obtaining and adhering to entry requirements for the cities of embarkation.
