NOTE: Norwegian Cruise Line is working closely with local government and health authorities to gather travel requirements to 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 including potentially booster requirements, additional testing by a verified 3rd party, and mask requirements. Guests may be denied boarding if all country specific requirements are not met.
It is the responsibility of the guest to ensure they meet the entry requirements for each destination. If traveling internationally, the countries you are flying to and/ or connecting through may have different testing and vaccination/booster stipulations, and 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.
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.
To learn more about our protocols and pre-cruise requirements check out our Sail Safe™ Health & Safety Program page.
The below country specific protocols apply to cruises departing from or calling on specific countries identified unless otherwise specified. Effective January 5, 2023, enhanced health screening is required for all guests that have recently visited Mainland China, Hong Kong, or Macau.
