HEALTHY SAIL PROGRAM: A HEALTHY RETURN TO SAILING

Royal Caribbean Group, formerly known as Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd is the global cruise holding company that owns four cruise lines: Royal Caribbean International, Celebrity Cruises, Azamara Club Cruises, and Silversea Cruises.

Royal Caribbean Group continues to work with Governments and local authorities around the world in preparation for a healthy return to service.

The health and safety of their guests, crew and the communities they visit, remain their top priority. Royal Caribbean Group, in collaboration with cruise line industry partners, formed the Healthy Sail Panel, a taskforce of globally recognized medical and scientific experts, to develop recommendations for establishing the strongest protocols in the travel industry. When the cruise lines resume operations, they will be implementing a comprehensive set of health and safety measures for the crew, guests and the destinations they visit.

The Healthy Sail Panel consists of globally recognized experts experienced in various disciplines including public health, infectious diseases, biosecurity and marine operations. The Panel has spent the last four months studying how to best protect the health and safety of guests and crew. They’ve made 74 recommendations across five core focus areas that every cruise operator should address to reduce the risk of infection and spread of COVID-19 on cruise ships:

  1. Testing, Screening and Exposure Reduction
  2. Sanitation and Ventilation
  3. Response, Contingency Planning and Execution
  4. Destination and Excursion Planning
  5. Mitigating Risks for Crew Members

Among the recommendations are key strategies such as:

  • Taking aggressive measures to prevent COVID-19 from entering a ship through robust education, screening and testing of both crew and guests prior to embarkation
  • Reducing transmission via air management strategies and sanitation practices
  • Implementing detailed plans for addressing positive infection onboard, including contingencies for onboard treatment, isolation and evacuation
  • Closely controlling shore excursions
  • Enhanced protection for crew members

Royal Caribbean Group will use the Panel’s recommendations to inform the development of new, detailed operating protocols. The impressive work of the Healthy Sail Panel is a progressive step to welcoming both you, back on-board soon!
