Holland America Line is introducing new protocols removing the need for guests on most voyages to take a pre-cruise COVID-19 test, regardless of their vaccination status.

Effectively immediately, unvaccinated guests sailing on “Standard Protocol” and designated remote voyages will no longer need a test prior to sailing; checks of individual guest vaccination status will be discontinued on Standard Protocol voyages as well (unless required by destinations).

The updated protocols now also include Panama Canal transits up to 15 nights

Using the Health Protocols Tool, Holland America Line’s guests can submit their booking number to see specific protocols for their voyage.

Guests on Enhanced Protocol voyages will be provided additional information about protocols based on ports visited. Guests can continue to submit documents electronically or use the VeriFLY app ahead of embarkation for faster check-in.

Holland America Line recommends that guests visit the TravelWell section of the company’s website for updates prior to cruise departure, as well as instructions on how to provide results of a negative test, where required.
