Official statement from Royal Caribbean: Health and Safety protocols for Adventure of the Seas
With the success of the first Adventure of the Seas sailing under our belt, we continue to trek forward in planning and communicating onboard protocols for future sailings. With July creeping up on us quickly, we are reaching out today to those guests currently confirmed on July Adventure of the Seas departures from Nassau, Bahamas to share the below protocol update. We will continue to update these protocols as public health situations evolve. Guidance for all other departure ports is still in development with federal, state and local authorities. Booked guests will be provided full details specific to their port of departure prior to sailing.Royal Caribbean
First and most important, Royal Caribbean is requiring guests 16 and older to be fully vaccinated (all required doses of Covid-19 vaccination completed 14 days prior to arriving in the Bahamas) to sail on Adventure in July, 2021. Crew members will all be fully vaccinated for their safety and that of guests.
Although they’re subject to change, protocols on Adventure of the Seas require vaccinated guests — everyone over 16 — to provide a negative PCR test taken no more than 5 days before arriving in the Bahamas and present it at check in. Costs associated with receiving the test are the guests’ responsibility. There will be complimentary testing on Day 5 or 6 to comply with requirements for re-entry into guests’ home country.
For unvaccinated guests, protocols on Adventure of the Seas require all guests 2 years and older (guests under 2 are exempt) to take three tests including a PCR test no more than 5 days prior to arrival in the Bahamas (and present the negative results at check in). Guests 12 years and older will need to submit the negative PCR test result as part of the Bahamas Health Visa online application and provide proof at arrival in the airport. Cost of this test is the responsibility of the guest. The second, a complimentary antigen test, will be taken at no cost at the British Colonial Hilton Nassau (where check-in takes place). The third test, also complimentary, will take place on day 5 or 6 to satisfy the requirement for re-entry into both Nassau and the guests’ home country.
