Prepare For your Cruise

Have A Safe Trip

Updated April 26, 2022
A Seabourn voyage isn’t just about going somewhere. It’s about being moved. Deeply. Joyfully. And as safely as possible. Our panel of eminent scientists and medical experts have helped us elevate our cleaning and health protocols, which makes a Seabourn voyage the safest decision for your next vacation.

IMPORTANT NOTE:
Masks on board are recommended but not required indoors or outdoors. We highly recommend guests wear a mask in the Grand Salon and other entertainment areas, casino, spa treatment rooms, youth activity centers and during any other congregate events.

Masks are required to be worn during the entire embarkation and debarkation process and on transportation during any Seabourn organized shore excursions, on tenders to and from ports, and in the onboard Medical Center.
Subject to change. Please check back regularly for any updates.

For everyone’s safety and peace of mind, all guests must be fully vaccinated and provide a negative viral COVID-19 test taken before embarkation. If you’re required to take a test before you return to your home country, we’ll provide one for you at no charge.
