What are the enhanced health protocols and will I need to wear a mask?
All guests and crew will be required to follow enhanced health and wellbeing measures to protect everyone on board on these cruises. These have been developed with guidance from Princess Cruises global medical and public health experts and scientists, and in close coordination with UK Government agencies. In line with Princess Cruises requirement that crew wear face masks on board, guests will also be required to wear a face mask in certain public areas of the ship. Enhanced sanitation measures and social distancing will also be in place. As per Princess Cruises current health protocols, there will be no exceptions to wearing a mask and guests will be required to wear a face mask in certain areas on board. Therefore, if you are exempt from wearing a face mask, Princess Cruises recommend you do not make a booking as you will not be permitted to travel unless you wear a face mask.

If a guest has been in contact with someone who has Covid-19 symptoms or has been self-isolating in the days prior to your cruise they will not be permitted to board the ship.
