23. All guests 12 years and older, unless they have a valid medical exemption, are required to be 'fully vaccinated' with a COVID-19 vaccine that is approved or recognised by the Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) to board. It is strongly recommended that children under 12 years of age are also fully vaccinated against COVID-19, when eligible, before travelling on a cruise. For children under 12 years of age at the time of cruise departure who will not be fully vaccinated, and guests with a valid recognised medical exemption to not be fully vaccinated, you will need to advise us of this as soon as possible as there is a limit on the number of guests who are not fully vaccinated that can travel on each cruise departure. In line with the Australian definition of 'fully vaccinated' for the purpose of Australia's border arrangements, you will be considered fully vaccinated if you have completed a primary course (for most vaccines, this is two doses), including a mixed dose schedule, of TGA approved or recognised vaccines, with the last dose given at least 14 days prior to the cruise departure date. Guests 12 years and older, and any guests under 12 years of age who are fully vaccinated, will need to provide proof of their vaccination status or valid recognised medical exemption before they embark their cruise. Failure to provide required proof of vaccination or a valid recognised medical exemption may result in denial of boarding. As part of the guidelines agreed to by the cruising industry and respective Australian governments, it is a requirement that at least 95% of guests must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. This means there is a limit on the number of guests who are not fully vaccinated that can travel on each cruise departure. The limit applies to any children under 12 years of age who are not fully vaccinated, and any other guests who are not fully vaccinated and have a valid recognised medical exemption. Any other guests who are not fully vaccinated will not be permitted to travel. No expenses will be covered in relation to a denied exemption or denied boarding. Guests will also need to declare that they have had a negative COVID-19 test result by either a PCR performed within 72 hours prior to boarding or with a self-administered Rapid Antigen Test (RAT) within 24 hours prior to boarding. A health declaration and confirmation of a negative COVID-19 test must also be completed by a parent or guardian for any dependent child they are travelling with. This information is current as of 31 August 2022 and is subject to change.
