Unvaccinated guests aged 5-17 are required to take a PCR test 120 hours before sailing and provide proof of a negative result. The cost of this test is not included.
Guests will be able to go ashore independently but must adhere to the specific COVID-19 protocols in each
destination. However, as restrictions in each destination are changeable, and some
destinations may only allow cruise line organised experiences ashore, P&O Cruises highly recommend
you purchase P&O Cruises shore experiences prior to travel to ensure you always have the option to explore each destination.
For your peace of mind, P&O Cruises will not visit a country on the UK government's red list at the point of travel and itineraries will be amended if required.
It is mandatory for all UK guests to take out comprehensive travel insurance for their holiday with P&O Cruises. Insurance must include medical cover of £2 million minimum and cover for emergency evacuations and medical expenses related to COVID-19. You must also ensure your policy includes cover for repatriation, cancellation and curtailment and full cover for any and all pre-existing medical conditions worldwide, or as a minimum, in the countries you are due to visit. You will be asked to confirm you have travel insurance at the terminal and you may need to provide proof of your policy. You will be denied boarding, at your own expense, if you do not arrange insurance.
Mandatory full vaccinations are required for all guests over the age of 18. Guests must be fully vaccinated 14+ days before departure.
