HEALTH PROTOCOLS

The health and well-being of passengers and crew is our highest priority. The smaller, more intimate size of the Elysium is on its own an assurance of higher safety levels. Due to Covid-19, we are taking additional steps and applying even more rigorous cleaning and disinfecting protocols, as well as reduced capacity measures. We are actively following all Word Health Organization updates regarding Covid-19 and adjust our strategies to ensure we meet the latest guidelines of hygiene and cleaning.

These are some of the measures applied on board the Elysium.

PRE-BOARDING HEALTH SCREENING

  • All passengers who have NOT been vaccinated are required to present a negative PCR Covid-19 test taken no more than 96 hours prior to boarding.

  • All passengers must fill out a health declaration form prior to boarding.

  • Covid-19 screenings for all guests and crew, including body temperature and oxygen level.

  • Boarding will be denied to any guest showing signs of illness or in case of contact with a COVID-19 case 14 days prior to cruise departure.

DURING THE CRUISE

  • Daily health and Covid-19 screenings for all guests and crew, including body temperature and oxygen level.

  • Face masks against Covid-19 are no longer mandatory in Greece. Masks on board are optional unless required by local regulation.

  • Hand sanitizer dispensers are available around the ship.

  • Comprehensive isolation procedures and a response plan are in place with local authorities, to be activated in case of suspected or confirmed Covid-19 cases.

ELYSIUM CREW

  • Use of approved disinfecting products, effective against viruses.

  • All spa and fitness facilities and services will be available with enhanced health and sanitization measures and extended operating hours to compensate for reduced capacity measures.

  • All snorkeling gear and water sports equipment will be sanitized after each use.

ELYSIUM DINING & FOOD HYGIENE

  • Ample dining space, indoors and outdoors on board the Elysium, guarantees safe distance between patrons.
