Itinerary monitoring & optimizations:
We are constantly monitoring the world health map and modifying itineraries to impacted areas. Our team is tracking world health developments 24 hours a day from our state-of-the-art Fleet Operations Center in Santa Clarita, CA, and from our offices around the world. We are in close contact with government health authorities and medical experts.
Enhanced Health Screenings & Terminal Sanitation
At embarkation, all guests and crew will be required to participate in mandatory health
screenings that will include thermal scanning to check temperatures. Guests and crew with symptoms of illness will be denied boarding. All terminals will be thoroughly sanitized before and after each embarkation.
In addition to our existing rigorous daily cleaning regimen, we are establishing supplementary sanitation and cleaning measures on board all Princess ships. This includes more frequent sanitization of all frequently hand-touched surfaces in public areas, from tables and chairs to casino chips and fitness machines. We will also use hospital-grade disinfectant solutions known to immediately kill all traces of COVID-19 in public areas and when cleaning guest and crew staterooms.
We will be actively enforcing hand-washing and/or the use of hand sanitizer at the entrance of all guest and crew dining venues. We are also adding additional sanitizer dispensers in high-traffic areas around the ship.
Keeping Our Crew Healthy
We are raising crew awareness of how to maintain a healthy environment on board by
providing daily health communications that reinforce frequent hand-washing, avoiding hand contact and more. We are helping our crew recognize the symptoms of COVID-19 and asking them to report any signs of guest or crew illness to the Medical Center.
Enhanced Medical Protocols & Preparedness
Every Princess ship sails with a highly capable Medical Team. Our doctors and nurses have received special training on COVID-19. Any individual experiencing symptoms of respiratory illness will be encouraged to visit the Medical Center for a complimentary medical consultation and, if appropriate, screening for COVID-19.
