Can I provide a Certificate of Recovery in lieu of vaccination or a negative test result, in ports where vaccination and testing is required?

R

For Cruises Departing U.S. Homeports, Puerto Rico and Canada

A Certificate of Recovery will not be accepted in lieu of a vaccination record card by ports of call that require all guests of vaccine-eligible age to be vaccinated. In these ports, all travelers age 12 and older must be fully vaccinated with the final dose of their vaccine administered at least 14 days before sailing.

A Certificate of Recovery, for a positive COVID-19 case at least 11 days before boarding but no more than 90 days ago, may be provided at some ports in lieu of a pre-cruise COVID-19 test result if it meets certain requirements. However, certain ports (listed below) will not permit guests to go ashore using a Certificate of Recovery in lieu of a test result. The following two documents must be presented:

  1. A certified medical health certificate from a doctor stating that you have fully recovered from COVID-19. It must meet the following requirements:
    • Official letterhead from a healthcare provider, public health official or telehealth provider showing:
      • Their name
      • Their address
      • Their phone number
      • Confirmation of your recovery and completion of isolation 
    • Must be typed (not handwritten) and signed by the provider
    • Must confirm the sample collection date of the positive PCR test, which must be a minimum of 11 days and a maximum of 90 days before the departure date of your cruise
  2. A positive result document for a COVID-19 PCR test taken a minimum of 11 days and a maximum of 90 days before the departure date of your cruise. An antigen test result will not be accepted with a Certificate of Recovery. The test results document from your test provider must include the name of the lab that processed the test, the lab’s CLIA Lab Number or Certification Number, the address of the lab, your name, the date the test was taken, type of test, and your positive result. This can be a printed document, email, or telehealth app notification. Fully handwritten doctor’s notes (such as those written on a prescription pad) will not be accepted. Minimal handwritten components (such as a check mark on a “positive” box) are acceptable as long as the other required information is printed on the document.

NOTE: Though Royal Caribbean will accept documentation meeting these requirements to board, many countries are not currently accepting Certificates of Recovery. In these ports, guests who provided certificates would not be allowed to debark.

The following require a Certificate of Recovery to be presented with a negative test result, in order to go ashore: 

  • St. Kitts
  • Panama
  • Panama Canal
  • St. Lucia
  • Guatemala
  • Colombia
  • Trinidad & Tobago
  • St. Vincent

For Cruises Departing Australia

Before arriving on boarding day, it is likely that all guests will need to take a COVID-19 test on their own, at their own expense, to meet boarding requirements in line with Australian Federal and State Government guidance. We will provide information of any testing requirements via email, a minimum of 30 days prior to your departure
