Here Are The Cruise Lines That Will Not Allow Passengers On Board With Mixed Covid-19 Vaccines


Carnival, Holland America Line, Norwegian Cruise Line and Princess have all updated their health and safety protocols to deny passengers who’ve mixed and matched certain vaccine doses.


Here are the latest updates from cruise lines:


CARNIVAL


According to Carnival’s COVID-19 guest protocols page on its website, for cruises departing the United States, the CDC requires both vaccines in a 2-dose series to be of the same type. It also accepts mixing mRNA vaccines only (Pfizer and Moderna).


No other vaccine combination will meet the criteria to be considered fully vaccinated.

HOLLAND AMERICA LINE


According to Holland America, guests who have received one single dose of a vector vaccine like AstraZeneca and one single dose of an mRNA vaccine (Pfizer/BioNTech or Moderna) will not be considered fully vaccinated.


Guess who’ve received two single doses of mixed vaccines that are the same type (ie. both mRNA) will, however, be considered fully vaccination and will be permitted to sail, so long as the final dose is received at least 14 days prior to the beginning of the cruise.

NORWEGIAN CRUISE LINE


NCL cited vaccine guidelines from the FDA and the World Health Organization, both of which authorized single brand vaccination protocol for ships embarking or disembarking at U.S. ports. These include J&J Janssen, Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna and AstraZeneca/Oxford. Mixed vaccination protocol will not be accepted (Pfizer + Moderna or AstraZeneca + Pfizer, for example).


All other vessels departing from a non-U.S. port will accept any U.S. FDA, European Medicines Agency (EMA) or WHO authorized single brand vaccination protocol, or a mixed vaccination protocol of only AstraZeneca-SK Bio, Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna combinations.


Vaccines received via clinical trials will not be accepted.

PRINCESS


According to Princess, guests wh’ve received one single dose of a vector vaccine (ie. AstraZeneca) and one single dose of an mRNA vaccine (ie. Pfizer/BioNTech or MOderna) will not be considered fully vaccinated.


Guests who have received two single doses of mixed vaccines that are the same type (ie. mRNA) will be considered fully vaccinated and will be permitted to sail, so long as the final dose is received at least 14 days prior to the beginning of the cruise.
