Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings lifting pre-cruise testing
Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd. will soon no longer mandate a Covid-19 test before boarding ships, unless required by local rules.
It will still require tests for cruises departing the US.
The new policy becomes effective on August 1 on all NCLH cruise lines – Norwegian Cruise Line, Oceania Cruises and Regent Seven Seas.
“The relaxation of the testing policy is in line with the rest of the travel, leisure and hospitality industry worldwide as society adapts and returns to a state of normalcy,” Norwegian said.
As well as the US, local rules require pre-embarkation testing from Canada, Greece and Bermuda.
