Covid travel restrictions and requirements

What do the changes to the Government’s traffic light system for travel mean for the destinations I can visit on my cruise?
Since we resumed international sailing, we promised our guests that we would not sail to any countries on the UK Government’s ‘red’ list. Therefore, the changes to the structure of the traffic light system will not change the destinations we can travel to.  
When does the requirement for a day 2 PCR test on return to England change?
The Government announced that from 24th October day 2 PCR tests can be replaced with day 2 lateral flow tests. This change came into force for all cruises that departed after 24th October.
What is the difference between the NHS PCR tests and the paid-for PCR tests from suppliers recommended by the Government?
There is no difference between the NHS tests and those that are required for travel. However, only PCR tests purchased from the Government’s recommended suppliers are approved for use for travel, so as to avoid added pressures to our NHS health care system.  
Will I be able to complete my Passenger Locator Form while I am on board?
For all cruises of less than 20 days, we will ask you to provide a Passenger Locator Form as part of the check-in process.  
I have booked two (or more) consecutive sailings, when will I need to complete my Passenger Locator Form?
If you are booked to travel on two consecutive international sailings (back to back bookings), you will not need to complete a Passenger Locator Form when your first cruise returns if you are not going ashore in the UK.  
Are you working with a recommended Government-approved supplier for PCR tests?
You can buy Government-approved day two PCR tests from BUPA.
What preparations do I need to make if I am travelling in November? What tests do I need to book?
The latest guidance from the Government suggests that, from the end of October, the those who are fully vaccinated and returning into the UK from a country that is NOT on the red list will be able to use a lateral flow test as a day 2 test, in place of a PCR test.
Will the itinerary for my cruise change if there is an outbreak at one of the destinations?
We are calling and speaking to our destination partners regularly, and will be closely monitoring the situation in any destination that we are due to call into.
What if one of the countries on my cruise goes onto the ‘red’ list?
We have made a promise to our guests that we will not sail to any country on the UK Government’s ‘red’ list. This means that if one of our ports of call is placed onto the ‘red’ list, we will work hard to find an alternative port of call in its place.
