Effective immediately, Uniworld River Cruises announced that it will require all passengers to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 before their sailing, prioritizing the health & safety of guests and crew.

Uniworld’s CEO and President Ellen Bettridge said:

“With many of the countries we travel to now requiring proof of vaccination to enter museums, restaurants, and historical sites, our new requirement will ensure that all of our guests are not only protected, but able to enjoy their river cruising experience to the fullest without restriction.”

Passengers must show documented proof of an approved COVID vaccine (Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca Vaxzevria, Johnson & Johnson), with the final dose administered no less than 2 weeks before the start of their cruise.

The policy will be in effect until at least December 31, 2021.

Uniworld informed all of the impacted passengers.

In addition to the proof of vaccination, Uniworld passengers will still be required to wear a mask in public areas, such as the corridors or the lobby, as well as when the required distancing to others can't be maintained. Masks can be taken off when seated in the restaurant and lounge. While onshore, all crew and passengers are subject to local mask guidelines.
