Sky Princess® at sea

Travel Guidelines for Unvaccinated Guests

Updated July 18, 2022

Cruise Health

We’re ready to welcome you aboard to explore the world with your favorite people while our crew takes good care of you.

While much has changed over the past two years, Princess remains one of the world’s top cruise lines, with world-class service made even better by our game-changing Medallion® device that enables everything from locating loved ones anywhere on board to having whatever you need delivered wherever you are.

As health guidelines continue to evolve, we’re able to accommodate more unvaccinated guests on most sailings without burdensome exemptions or vaccine status justification, available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Experience an effortless vacation just the way you like it. Book your cruise today!

Things to Keep in Mind

Vaccine Exemptions

Based on CDC guidelines, we are now able to accept up to 10% of our guests as unvaccinated on most of our cruises. Please make sure you visit our FAQ for the region you’re sailing to confirm the exact allotment of unvaccinated guests allowed.

As an unvaccinated guest, please note you’ll need to contact us to obtain a vaccination exemption approval in order to confirm your booking.

COVID-19 Testing Requirements

You’ll need to provide a negative test result at embarkation and take a test at the terminal on the day of sailing and at the end of your voyage depending on the region.

Additional information is available on our Testing Requirements page.

Shore Visits & Excursions

We’re ready to welcome you ashore, as well. With a few exceptions based on region, unvaccinated guests have full access to explore the places we sail – from centuries-old European cities to Caribbean islands – all of which can be enjoyed on a Princess-organized excursion or on your own.
