P&O Cruises, Cunard eases testing protocols

Tuesday, 15 Aug, 2022 0

Sister brands Cunard Line and P&O Cruises have relaxed health protocols from September 6, 2022.

Testing for fully vaccinated passengers will no longer be ‘required’ but ‘highly recommended’ for shorter sailings.

Vaccinated guests still require a negative antigen or PCR test on longer, more ‘complex’ sailings of 16 nights or longer.

Stricter rules may be in place in certain regions such as Canada and Australia.

“These updated protocols reflect the current environment across the world,” said Sture Myrmell, Carnival UK President.

P&O Cruises temporarily eased testing requirements in late June aboard a single ship, Iona, for several sailings to test how guests might respond and whether the measure would be suitable. That test period passed without difficulty, but was not extended nor applied to other ships until now.

The two lines still require all adult guests to be fully vaccinated.

Crew are all vaccinated and are tested regularly.
