Ambassador Cruise Line to ease Covid-19 regulations
Pre-departure testing on most sailings will conclude on 3 April, with the decision coming after ‘careful consideration’
Ambassador Cruise Line has announced that it will remove its requirement of Covid-19 testing prior to embarkation on most of its sailings from 3 April.
Its updated policy says that passengers aged 18 and over must have had two vaccinations to board, but they are no longer required to have had a booster vaccine or take a test before travelling with the cruise line.
Children are not required to have had any vaccinations or tests prior to travel.
Ambassador made the change after ‘careful consideration and discussions with independent advisers and London Port Health Authority’.
Guests are asked that if they are displaying Covid-19 symptoms within 72 hours of departure, they should take a test at home as a courtesy to other passengers and contact their travel insurer if their results are positive.
If passengers test positive while onboard, they will be required to self-isolate until they test negative for two consecutive days.
Requirements may differ for Ambassador’s longer duration cruises, with the line saying it will contact passengers on affected cruises in due course.
This follows P&O Cruises’ recent announcement that they were scrapping Covid-19 testing and vaccination requirement.
