NCLH will no longer require COVID-19 testing staring August 1st

Jul 12, 2022

Norwegian Cruise Line will no longer require guests to complete pre-cruise COVID-19 testing unless required by local regulations, effective August 1, 2022. The announcement covers NCLH three brands the Norwegian Cruise Line, Oceania Cruises, and Regent Seven Seas Cruises.

However, pre-boarding testing requirements will remain in effect for guests currently traveling on voyages departing from destinations with local testing regulations, including but not limited to the US, Canada, Greece, and Bermuda.

The relaxation of the testing policy is in line with the rest of the travel, leisure, and hospitality industry around the world as society continues to adjust and return to a state of normalcy. NCL recommends that all guests stay current on vaccination protocols and test at their convenience prior to travel.

All voyages across the company's three brands continue to operate under its robust science-backed SailSAFE health and safety program, which will evolve alongside the public health environment. Cruises will also follow applicable local protocols in ports and destinations visited.
