SEATTLE, 2022 – Seabourn, the ultra-luxury ocean and expedition cruise line, has confirmed today that it will opt in to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) updated program for cruise ships operating in U.S. waters. The line will continue to operate vaccinated cruises, with two key changes to onboard protocols for guests effective March 1:
Masks on board will be recommended but not required. There may be certain venues and events in which masks will still be required.
Additional flexibility for pre-cruising testing requirements will become available. Details will be posted to the Health & Safety section of our website.
Seabourn’s highest responsibility and top priorities are compliance, environmental protection and the health, safety and well-being of our guests, team members, and the people and communities the ships visit.
