Azamara to remove vaccination rule from December

Azamara restructures UK team to 'bolster growth'

Azamara has announced the removal of its Covid-19 vaccination requirement, effective from 1 December.

The change applies to guests travelling on any Caribbean and European sailings, although vaccines will still be necessary if required by local regulations.

Regardless of vaccination status, Azamara said it continues to encourage all guests departing from any port to get tested prior to travel, however these results will not be required to board the ship.

In July, the cruise line removed its Covid-19 embarkation testing rules. Testing will continue to be available to guests on board as needed.

In addition, the line’s crew will continue to be fully vaccinated and wear face coverings.

Azamara going in the ‘right direction’

Azamara president Carol Cabezas said: “The safety of our guests and crew is our top priority and we have continued to closely monitor the evolving global situation.

“Azamara continues to implement the highest safety measures in accordance with the local health authorities and the current positive direction of the travel industry.

“We look forward to many being able to sail with us for the immersive cruising experience that we are known for and explore wonderful destinations the Azamara way.”

Speaking when the line scrapped the testing requirement, Cabezas added: “The easing of our testing policy marks a step in the right direction towards a return to normalcy for the travel and cruising industry.”
