Effective Monday, March 16, 2020, any person age 70 or older must present written verification from a qualified physician certifying that the person has no severe, chronic medical condition and is fit to travel. To download the required physician letter, click here.

Additionally, any person with a severe, chronic medical condition, including those specified by the CDC – i.e. chronic heart, lung, liver, or kidney disease, diabetes, HIV/AIDS, or cancer – will be unable to sail.

If you are unable to provide a "fit to travel" letter from your physician or have a compromising medical condition, you'll be provided with a Future Cruise Credit to come back and sail with us at a later time.

With COVID-19 adding uncertainty to travel plans around the world, Royal Caribbean International said it will give guests greater control over their vacation decisions, allowing guests to cancel cruises as late as two days before departure.

The “Cruise With Confidence” policy allows guests on Royal Caribbean International to cancel up to 48 hours before a sailing. This applies to all cruises with a sailing date on or before September 1, 2020. Guests will receive a full credit for their fare, usable on any future sailing of the guest’s choice in 2020 or 2021. The policy applies to both new and existing cruise bookings.
