For these cruises the definition of vaccinated is that all guests, regardless of age are fully vaccinated a minimum of 14 days following the 2nd dose of the currently approved Covid-19 vaccines being administered. Proof of vaccination and the dates given will be required (approved forms of evidence will be confirmed closer to time of departure) and this will be required to be shown at the terminal prior to boarding.
If you are unlikely to meet the vaccine policy at time of departure, please refer to our Cruise with Confidence booking conditions.
PLEASE NOTE: For all cruises departing Southampton from September 30 to November 3, 2021 on Regal Princess and October 5 to November 5, 2021 on Sky Princess, all guests 18 years old and over will be required to have completed their vaccination course a minimum of 14 days prior to sailing. All guests 17 years old and below will need to have completed their vaccination course a minimum 14 days prior to sailing or will require a negative PCR test within 72 hours prior to travel.
On UK staycation cruises, guests will be able to go ashore independently at ports of call if they are fully-vaccinated.
As part of terms and conditions it is mandatory for all UK guests to have suitable travel insurance cover. Travel insurance ensures that guests can relax and enjoy their holiday with peace of mind that they are covered for most eventualities. Typically, travel insurance covers cancellation of your holiday, stolen belongings and medical treatment. Insurance documents will be checked at the terminal and boarding will be denied, at guests’ own expense, for anyone without appropriate cover. When travelling with Princess Cruises, insurance must include medical and repatriation cover of £2 million minimum that includes cover for emergency evacuations and medical expenses related to Covid-19.
