BERMUDA CRUISES

VACCINE REQUIREMENTS:

For guests sailing from a U.S. port, vaccination is recommended but not required.   

COVID-19 TEST REQUIREMENTS:

For guests sailing from a U.S. port, testing is recommended but no longer required within 3 days of embarkation prior to their vacation. 

 

TRAVEL INSURANCE REQUIREMENTS:

For all new reservations, beginning July 1, 2022, MSC Cruises strongly encourages but does not require guests to purchase travel insurance with COVID-19 protection either through MSC Cruises or another provider. Guests can purchase travel insurance within 24 hours of making their final payment.

During your cruise, you may be exposed to specific COVID-19 risks that may not be covered by existing insurance policies without COVID-19 protection such as cancellation, interruption, repatriation expenses, quarantine, medical assistance, and related expenses, as well as hospitalization.  If you have no insurance in place, you may be exposed to additional costs that may not be covered by the company.

The insurance should be purchased to cover you and your traveling party from the confirmation date of your booking through the end of your cruise and flight or your Stay & Cruise package.
