NCLH-Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings announced it will no longer require passengers to complete pre-cruise COVID testing unless required by local regulations.

The policy will go into effect across NCL-Norwegian Cruise Line, Oceania, and RSSC-Regent Seven Seas Cruises beginning August 1st.

The pre-embarkation COVID testing requirement will remain in place for passengers currently sailing on voyages departing from destinations with local Coronavirus testing regulations, including but not limited to the United States, Canada, Bermuda, and Greece.

The relaxation of the COVID testing policy is in line with the rest of the travel/leisure/hospitality industry worldwide as society continues to return to a state of normalcy.

Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings continues to strongly recommend all passengers be up to date on vaccination protocols and test at their convenience before travel.

All cruises across the 3 brands of the company continue to operate under the NCLH robust science-backed SailSAFE (health & safety program) which evolves along with the public health environment. Norwegian also follows applicable local protocols at the destinations and ports it visits.
