Marella Cruises is to scrap its vaccination requirement from 1 May 2023.

Passengers sailing from May onwards will no longer have to provide proof of their COVID-19 vaccination.

The change applies to all cruises, except for those to destinations that require visitors to be vaccinated, such as the US and US territories.

The line confirmed customers aged 12 and over travelling on or before 30 April 2023 would still need to be vaccinated.

Managing Director Chris Hackney said: “Health and safety is always our number one priority for all our guests and crew. This decision has been carefully assessed by our teams.

“Many destinations no longer require vaccination, and relaxing these rules is the natural next step as the travel and cruise industry progresses after the COVID-19 pandemic.”

Chris added: “We hope the relaxation of these rules means our guests can enjoy an easier pre-travel experience.”

The rule change comes just over a week after the line announced it no longer required passengers to have booster vaccination in order to sail.
