Enhanced Screening Protocols

All guests and crew will undergo a pre-embarkation health screening.

Once on board, touchless temperature checks and monitoring of guests and crew throughout the voyage will help identify potential health issues, offering an additional layer of prevention and protection.

Temperature Screenings

Touchless temperature checks will occur:

  • Prior to embarkation and disembarkation
  • Upon returning to the ship while in a port of call
  • Prior to all activities in public venues
  • Prior to all meals in dining venues

Crew Screenings

A healthy crew helps ensure healthy guests. Constant monitoring of crew health includes temperature checks multiple times per day as well as rigid sanitation protocols.

Increased Sanitation Measures

All ships are thoroughly cleaned and disinfected prior to every voyage in accordance with company protocols, which are developed in partnership with the CDC’s Vessel Sanitation Program. Embarkation terminals will be sanitised continuously, and where possible, sanitised with electrostatic sprayers before and after each embarkation and debarkation. Further, all staterooms, suites and public areas will be cleaned, sanitised and disinfected at an increased frequency.

Enhanced Medical Resources

NCL is enhancing their onboard medical centres to be equipped with testing kits and medical supplies, including onboard testing for COVID-19 as available.

Onboard medical teams will also be increased fleetwide and will include a new dedicated Public Health Officer on every ship. Additionally, each ship has dedicated isolation accommodation should the need arise.

Testing kits and medical supplies include:

  • Advanced onsite COVID-19 testing
  • Increased inventory of medications to treat COVID-19
