Silversea's Healthy Return to Sailing

Please read for Silversea's policies regarding their commitment to the health and safety of guests.

At Silversea, our top priority has always been to safeguard the health and safety of our guests, crew, and the communities we visit. Partnering with leading medical experts and governmental authorities from around the world, the Royal Caribbean Group formed the Healthy Sail Panel to ensure that our guests can travel in luxury with unwavering confidence. The Healthy Sail Panel identified several areas of focus.



Testing for all: 
All guests and crew are required to provide results of a PCR COVID-19 test, dated between 24 hours and 5 days prior to boarding.

Only those who test negative will be permitted to board the ship.

Masks: Guests will be required to wear a mask in all indoor public areas, terminals and during shore excursions. Crew will be wearing masks at all times. Nevertheless, guests will not be required to wear masks while seated in restaurants, at tables in bars, and in outdoor areas in which physical distancing can be maintained.


Physical Distancing: Thanks to the intimate size of our ships and the abundance of space enjoyed by our guests, we can guarantee physical distancing with only minor reconfigurations to onboard public areas. Furthermore, our ships will sail at reduced capacity* during the first months of our operations.


Certified Shore Excursions: Our itineraries have been revised to include only low-risk destinations with approved contingency plans. Guests will be allowed to go ashore only through certified shore excursions, carefully curated to ensure they uphold our onboard health and safety standards.




Sanitation: Our cleaning processes have been further enhanced to provide the highest standards of cleanliness in travel. Hospital-grade disinfectants will be consistently used throughout the day in all public areas. Suites will be sanitized twice daily.


Increased Air Filtration: On each of our ships, our HVAC systems supply fresh, filtered air from outdoors to all guest suites. This continual intake of fresh air means old air is replaced, with a total air change per hour well above the minimum required.


Medical Facilities & Expert Response: Our high-quality onboard medical care is stronger than ever, with more doctors and nurses on each ship, as well as state-of-the-art equipment enhancements. Our multi-level COVID-19 Expert Response Plan has been developed and approved by the Healthy Sail Panel to contain an outbreak if a positive case is confirmed.
