Please note that all MSC guests will need to follow all of these requirements to be allowed on board:

All guests (two years old and over) need to provide a certificate of a negative Antigen/Lateral Flow Test or RT-PCR test taken within the two days before the day of embarkation. An Antigen self-test will not be accepted unless it is accompanied by an official certificate.

All guests (12 years old and over) must be fully vaccinated and present evidence of their vaccination status indicating a full vaccination course (i.e., two doses of a two-dose vaccine) has been completed within the last 9 months. If more than 9 months (270 days) have passed since completing the vaccination course, evidence of a booster dose will be required to meet the vaccination requirement for embarkation.

Guests are allowed to embark if they have recovered from COVID-19 within the last 90 days and have a verification certificate or QR Code confirming as such AND provide a certificate of a negative RT-PCR or antigen test taken within 48 hours before embarkation. If you embark on your cruise at 3pm on a Saturday, you should take your COVID-19 test on the Thursday as of 3pm.


Guests are considered fully vaccinated if:

Within the last 9 months and 14 or more days prior to departure they have completed two sets of vaccines in accordance with local regulations including Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca, Johnson & Johnson and Novavax. All Guests 12 years or older vaccinated with “Janssen” (Johnson & Johnson) are now required mandatory a second shot 14 days prior ship’s departure in order to be considered as “fully vaccinated”. A “mix-and-match” combination of the above list of vaccines is also accepted. If more than 9 months (270 days) have passed since receiving the two sets of vaccine shots, a booster vaccine will be required to embark. If the booster was done before expiration of the second vaccine (therefore within nine months) it is not necessary to respect the 14 days waiting period before boarding. However, if the booster is taken after nine months from the second dose, it is necessary to have had the booster at least 14 days before the departure date. Guests who received a booster vaccine are exempted from the 9 months restriction. Fully vaccinated Guests who have recovered from Covid-19 are also exempted from the 9 months restriction. Guests who recovered from Covid-19 with one shot of vaccine are considered as fully vaccinated as long they received their vaccine or they recovered from Covid-19 within the last 90 days** (it will be necessary to provide a QR or alternative validation documentation). The vaccination certificate must be valid for the duration of the entire cruise.
