Celestyal, the award-winning and recognized number one cruise choice in the Greek Islands and the Eastern Mediterranean, announces the relaxation of its health policy for COVID-19. For all sailings commencing on 26 August 2022, all guests aged 12 and over must continue to be fully immunised.

Additionally visitors who are 18 years of age or older should also be vaccinated with the booster dose if more than 270 days have passed since their last dose of vaccine. All pre-boarding guests must present a certified negative antigen test (rapid test) for COVID within 48 hours or a negative molecular test (PCR) within 72 hours, as opposed to the previous requirement to present a test up to 24 hours before boarding boarding. For EU citizens who have recently recovered from COVID, the European Digital Certificate of COVID Recovery is required. For those coming from countries that do not participate in the DCC (Digital COVID Certificate) system of the EU (such as America, Canada, Mexico and others), they can show a doctor’s note that will be accompanied by the positive and negative test corresponding to the date of illness and recovery.

The recovery certificate in both cases has a maximum validity of 180 days from the date of illness. The use of masks which was mandatory for all indoor spaces is now optional with a strong recommendation for indoor and outdoor use when crowding is observed.’

In accordance with the updated guidelines of CLIA’s European Healthy Gateways, as well as the Greek health authorities, we are pleased to announce the further relaxation of our health protocols», said the General Commercial Manager of Celestyal Cruises, Mr. Leslie Peden.

Adding that, “The more flexible requirements allow our guests to undergo a pre-departure diagnostic test for Greece, as well as more flexibility in wearing a mask on board the cruise ship. We will continue to have open communication and cooperation with all relevant agencies as the health and safety of our guests, crew and the communities we visit continue to be our top priority».
