NEWS: Carnival advises guests of changes to protocols to destinations including Bahamas. The Bahamas requires that all guests on cruise lines calling on Bahamian ports be fully vaccinated for COVID-19, effective September 3.
Carnival is already sailing all its voyages to meet the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) definition of a vaccinated cruise, by which at least 95 percent of all guests and crew are fully vaccinated.
All Carnival crew members are vaccinated, and more than 95 percent of guests, with the exception being a small number of capacity-controlled exemptions that are approved for children under 12 and certain adults who are unable to be vaccinated.
Carnival advises guests of changes to protocols effective August 28 through October, for departures from all Atlantic and Gulf homeports; only children under 12 and adults with a medical condition that prohibits their vaccination are exempt from vaccination requirements to sail.
Carnival is advising guests of this update, and any guests that have received an exemption applicable through October have been informed of this change and that exemptions beyond these two categories are rescinded.
Per the protocols already in place, all Carnival guests are required to confirm their vaccination status and show proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR or antigen test.
Carnival advises guests of changes to protocols to destinations including Bahamas and more information on mask policies and other guest protocols are available at the Have Fun. Be Safe. page on Carnival.com.
