PRE-EMBARKATION TESTING REQUIREMENTS – BARBADOS/FORT LAUDERDALE/SAN JUAN
Fully Vaccinated Guest Embarkation Testing Requirements
Guests embarking on a Silversea vessel who are fully vaccinated are no longer required to present a negative PCR or Antigen test.
Unvaccinated Guests Testing Requirements
Unvaccinated Guests must present a valid Antigen or PCR negative test result performed within 72 hours before embarkation:
- The test may be administered by a verified third party, either a laboratory or pharmacy OR
- A self-test at home, verified by a third party (telehealth provider, pharmacy or laboratory).
- The Certificate must contain the guest’s name (as shown on the cruise ticket), as well as the date of test, and result. You must provide a digital or printed proof upon embarkation.
Important: self-test at home kits cannot be verified by a friend or family member.
PLEASE NOTE: All guests aged from 0 to 2 years old are exempted from testing.
Silversea will NOT be providing pier-side testing for unvaccinated embarking guests; as such, it is imperative that you arrive to the pier with your individual negative test result. If you arrive for embarkation without a valid negative test result, you will be denied boarding.
Pre-Arrival Testing Option
The Antigen test may be administered by a verified third party, either a laboratory or pharmacy OR a self-test at home, verified by a third party (telehealth provider, pharmacy or laboratory). The Certificate must contain the guest's name (as shown on the cruise ticket), as well as date of test, and result. You must provide a digital or printed proof upon embarkation.
Whilst approved self-test kits are now readily available at pharmacies and drugstore chains, we are pleased to make them available for order pre-cruise. We suggest that you order them at least one full week in advance of your sailing. These tests allow you to complete your pre-cruise test at home, or any place of your choosing, with the help of live video supervision by a Certified Testing Guide.
