Silversea Drops Vax Requirement, Eases Pre-Cruise Testing Protocols

Silversea Cruises' Silver Endeavour

Joining its sister Royal Caribbean Group cruise lines Royal Caribbean and Celebrity, which announced their updates last week, Silversea Cruises is adjusting its COVID-19 protocols.

Beginning 05SEP, the luxury cruise line is dropping its vaccination requirement for passengers.

Vaccinated travelers will not be required to take a COVID-19 test prior to embarkation in  destinations where local regulations allow.

Unvaccinated travelers may sail aboard Silversea ships by providing proof of a negative COVID-19 antigen or PCR test within 72 hours prior to embarkation.

As other cruise lines have advised when announcing their updated COVID protocols, testing and vaccination requirements may differ by destination, and the new protocols may not apply in destinations like Canada, Australia and Greece. Where tests are required, Silversea notes all guests must provide proof of a negative test result (printed or digital) at embarkation and should travel with a copy of their test result.

Silversea says it will advise booked guests and their travel advisors of any relevant local COVID-19 requirements within 30 days prior to sailing.
