Carnival streamlines pre-cruise testing

Carnival Corp has partnered with Quest Diagnostics to expand pre-cruise testing options for passengers.

It makes pre-board testing more convenient and accessible for guests, the company says.

It is available for guests of Carnival Cruise Line, Holland America Line, Princess Cruises and Seabourn at more than 1,500 Quest Diagnostics patient service centers and retail pharmacy testing locations.

Currently, all guests, regardless of vaccination status, must present a negative Covid-19 viral test taken no more than three days before their embarkation, along with additional health and safety requirements.

The pre-board test (molecular or antigen) is one of the added measures recently implemented by the company's cruise lines.

"Access to testing continues to play an important role in the restart of our guest operations, and working with Quest simplifies the process for our guests by making it easier to access convenient," the tcompany said.

Guests may schedule testing with Quest Diagnostics at more than 1,500 locations, including Quest Diagnostics patient service centers and select Walmart and other retail pharmacy locations throughout the U.S.
