📢 Important: COVID-19 Vaccination Protocol
The Bahamian Government has announced new protocols requiring any visitors (12 years and older) to be fully vaccinated. Due to this latest requirement, all guests 12 years and older must be fully vaccinated on all sailings beginning 9/2/21 through and including sailings of 10/30/21.
Guests 12 Years and Older:
All fully vaccinated guests, 12 years and older, will be asked to present their original CDC vaccination card at the pier upon embarkation. Photocopies or pictures of vaccination cards will not be accepted. In addition, all vaccinated guests over 12 years old will need to provide either a negative PCR test OR a negative Antigen test results not more than 72 hours before sailings. Guests will be considered fully vaccinated if they have received their second dose in a 2-dose series, such as the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines (or their single dose, such as the Johnson & Johnson vaccine) at least 14 days prior to the cruise. Vaccinated guests (as long as they provide proof of testing 72 hours before, are no longer required to take the Antigen test at the port prior to embarkation). This is a significant change to the current testing policy.
If guests are unable or unwilling to show proof of vaccination, they will be denied boarding and will be unable to sail. This is because the Bahamian Government is only accepting vaccinated guests at this time.
Guests 2–11 Years Old:
For guests under 12 who are currently ineligible for the vaccine, can still cruise with us, as long as they continue to provide a negative PCR test at least 72 hours prior to sailing and undergo an Antigen test at the port prior to embarkation.
Antigen test for those who provide a negative PCR test at least 72 hours prior to sailing is $35 per person nonrefundable and payable to the 3rd party vendor.
If unable to provide a PCR test, one can be done at the port for $120 per person nonrefundable and payable to the 3rd party vendor.
For guests 12 years and older that are currently booked beginning 9/2/21 through and including sailings of 10/30/21 and are not fully vaccinated and will not be vaccinated 14 days prior to the cruise, are eligible to have their booking protected and moved to a new sail date from 11/1/21.
Important change on onboard protocols will now mean masks are no longer required to be worn while inside the ship, unless you are unvaccinated and under the age of 12.
Children under 2 years do not need to provide negative tests results nor wear a mask inside the ship.
Cruise & Stay and One-Way Guests:
For cruise and stay guests or for one-way guests the same policy applies, plus these guests will need to provide a copy of the Bahamas Travel Health Visa.
For Bahamian one-way guests the same applies. Must be vaccinated and provide negative test results and Bahamas Travel Health Visa.
