CRUISE THE USA WITH NO RESTRICTIONS: The United States Department of Homeland Security has announced that end of day May 11, 2023, vaccination requirements for international travelers will be lifted, allowing open travel within the U.S. to non-citizens regardless of vaccination status. We’re thrilled to welcome all international guests back on our U.S. based ships and we look forward to making more vacation dreams come true all around the world.
Country Specific Travel Requirements Note:
Norwegian Cruise Line works closely with local government and health authorities to gather travel requirements for the destinations we visit. While this information is provided as a courtesy to our guests, destinations we travel to may have very specific entry requirements due to health and safety protocols.
Currently, there are no active protocol requirements specific to cruise line guests in any of the destinations we embark in and/or call to. However, we strongly encourage all guests to check back frequently for updates as protocols are always subject to change.
If traveling internationally, the countries you are flying to and/or connecting through may have different testing and vaccination/booster stipulations. We encourage you to visit the government and airport websites of every country you will be traveling to throughout your journey to familiarize yourself with their requirements. It is the responsibility of the guest to ensure they meet the entry requirements for each destination. Guests may be denied boarding if all country-specific requirements are not met.
For All Sailings
As you prepare for your upcoming sailing, we want to ensure that your embarkation process runs smoothly and inform you of the following important requirements.
Norwegian Cruise Line recommends for all guests to follow, and where possible, sign up for notifications from their local government on international travel regulations that may prevent, restrict, or require additional documentation when traveling to another country for embarkation or during their cruise. Please note, hotels booked through NCL for a pre and/or post hotel cruise stay may have additional protocols and requirements. Please check with the hotel directly for further information.
