Within 72 hours before boarding the vessel, passengers are required to take a RT-PCR swab test. A negative result of the test will be required to be presented before boarding in addition to a completed health questionnaire, which will be provided in advance. Antigen test for Covid -19 ( nasal swab or saliva test ) will be performed before embarkation. Only passengers with negative test results will be permitted to board. In addition, any person experiencing symptoms compatible with Covid-19 ( cough ,fever, shortness of breath, loss of taste or smell ), or if identified, anyone who has been in contact during the last 14 days with a confirmed case of Covid-19 will not be accepted on board Star Clippers’ ships. Social distancing and the wearing of protective masks will be required. Embarkation will take place in small groups.
In addition, all Crew will have taken an intensive training, which will form part of Star Clippers Protocols. All Officers and crew are required to take a comprehensive health check and Covid-19 test before joining each cruise and regularly thereafter. We also expect to have all crew members vaccinated prior to joining the vessels. Regular temperature checks will be carried out and all Officers and crew will be required to wear masks
