Live From Norwegian Jade


Recommended Posts

There is quite a bit of good info on the NCL Jade roll call.  So far so good.  Not much info yet on what happens as far as testing and getting on and off the ship at each port.   Hopefully someone on the cruise now will find this thread and further enlighten us.

The article also states, apart from 100% vaccination requirement that "The line also requires proof of a negative PCR test and conducts a rapid antigen test just before you are given clearance to board."

 

That's not true.  Unless I'm reading it wrong.  (The PCR test bit, not the antigen test)

The author of the article is from the UK and currently NCL are stating that UK passengers must have a test within 72 hours of boarding in addition the the pre boarding test by NCL.  It can be PCR or Antigen.  I did see something today in a roll call that this may be a misinformation but when we go in september we will do the test just in case.  No test, No cruise, No refund is what they currently are saying

Good point.  He probably should have referenced it as a UK only rule.  However, he was incorrect to state that NCL requires "proof of a negative PCR test", as it clearly states PCR or antigen.

 

"Currently, guests who are residents of the United Kingdom are required to provide proof of a negative COVID-19 antigen or PCR test, performed by a third party and taken no more than 72-hours prior to embarkation, upon boarding. Additionally, these guests will receive an antigen test at the terminal as part of the standard protocols. Those that cannot present a negative test at the terminal during check in will be denied boarding without refund."

 

Not clear myself why they insist on a 3 day old antigen test when they are doing one at port anyway.

I dont get it either.  Someone in another roll call said they received an email about it yestrady and was told it was a mis communication. Not sure who toled them this as it has been on the website for a couple of weeks.  When I asked about it I was told an NHS test would be ok but we wont take that chance and will book a test at the airport before boarding our flight
