Effective immediately, Uniworld Boutique River Cruises announced that it will require all guests to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 prior to their sailing, prioritizing the health and safety of guests and crew.

“With many of the countries we travel to now requiring proof of vaccination to enter museums, restaurants, and historical sites, our new requirement will ensure that all of our guests are not only protected, but able to enjoy their river cruising experience to the fullest without restriction,” says Uniworld’s CEO and president Ellen Bettridge, in a press statement.

Guests must be able to show documented proof of an approved COVID-19 vaccine (Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca Vaxzevria, or Johnson & Johnson), with the final dose administered no less than two weeks prior to the start of their cruise/tour. This policy will be in effect until at least Dec. 31, 2021. Uniworld has informed all of the impacted guests.

In addition to the proof of vaccination, guests will still be required to wear a mask while walking around public areas, such as the corridors or the lobby, and when the required distancing to others cannot be maintained. Masks can be taken off when seated in the lounge and restaurant. While onshore, all guests and crew are subject to local mask guidelines.
