Disney Cruise Line — which still requires all guests ages five and up to be fully vaccinated before sailing — have updated their COVID-19 testing requirements for all sailings departing the U.S.A. or Canada on or after June 7.
Fully vaccinated guests will now be required to obtain a COVID-19 test on their own and upload the results before embarkation day. If they do not upload a result, they will be required to pay for a test at the terminal.
Here are the full requirements:
Guests who are not vaccine-eligible
Guests who are not vaccine-eligible because of age (ages 4 and under) must provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test result (paid for by the Guest) taken no more than 3 days before their sail date. The test should be a Nucleic Acid Amplification Test (NAAT), rapid PCR test or lab-based PCR test. Rapid antigen tests are not accepted.
Guests who are not vaccine-eligible because of age are also required to take a second COVID-19 test (paid for by Disney Cruise Line and administered by Inspire Diagnostics) at the terminal before boarding.
Fully vaccinated guests
Fully vaccinated guests on sailings departing U.S. and Canadian ports must provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test result (paid for by the Guest) taken no more than 2 days before their sail date. The test must be:
- A rapid antigen test professionally observed by a medical professional through a medical facility or telehealth provider
- Nucleic Acid Amplification Test (NAAT)
- Rapid PCR test or lab-based PCR test
Guests can purchase COVID-19 tests through Inspire Diagnostics or obtain a test from any independent testing supplier.
Test Results for all guests must be uploaded to the Safe Passage website by midnight prior to embarkation day.
Fully vaccinated Guests who do not upload the required pre-trip test results to the Safe Passage website by midnight prior to embarkation day must be tested at the terminal before boarding and will be charged. The cost of embarkation tests for fully vaccinated Guests will be $74 + tax for the initial antigen test, and, if needed, $125 + tax for a confirmatory PCR test, charged at the time of service.
