Atlas Ocean Voyages will require proof of vaccination from all guests, beginning with World Navigator’s October 4, 2021 sailing.

Atlas will require all its guests to furnish a valid proof of certificate detailing that they have completed their COVID vaccination at least 14 days prior to embarkation. For all voyages, Atlas will administer a mandatory antigen test at embarkation and require guests to provide a valid negative result from a PCR test taken up to 72 hours, or a valid negative result from an antigen test taken up to 48 hours, prior to embarkation.
All Atlas shipboard staff and crew members are vaccinated, and the cruise brand says it is continuing to monitor the international travel requirements and will adjust its health and safety protocols as appropriate.
