In spite of the latest Covid-19 developments, Stars On Board is maintaining its scheduled Cruise event for Valentine’s 12 – 16 FEB, 2022.
Although not required by the Cruise Line, Stars On Board will be operating this sailing on a 50% capacity to secure the best safety conditions on board.
The latest Covid 19 developments have not impacted the scheduled itinerary of this Norwegian cruise Line (NCL) sailing.
NCL has stringent health and safety protocols which include full vaccination of 100% of guests and crew coupled with Universal pre-embarkation testing of guests at the terminal, mask requirements on board and numerous additional layers of protection against COVID-19.
As a result of NCL’s comprehensive health and safety protocols, NCL believes that vacationing onboard any one of their 28 cruise ships is safer, and guests are better protected from contacting COVID-19, than in any other general population setting. NCL takes health and safety matters extremely seriously and will continue to work closely with the CDC and other global and domestic authorities to protect our guests, crew and the communities we visit.
COVID-19 antigen or PCR tests prior to disembarkation will be administered on board and paid for by the Cruise Line for those guests who require a test to return home. If a PCR test is required for any travel home, the cruise line will administer and pay for a PCR test, only for those guests whose home country specifically requires a PCR test.
NCL is strategically installing medical-grade air filters of the highest filtration grade, MERV 13 or HEPA, capable of removing 99.9% of airborne pathogens, including COVID-19, and implementing new bi-polar ionization technology.
This includes an increase in intensive care unit capacity, new and upgraded equipment, onshore medical institution partnerships, telemedicine capabilities and additional robust consultation and treatment options
All ships will sail with a dedicated Public Health Officer on board that will oversee the day-to-day sanitation and cleanliness of all public areas and accommodations.
