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 assurance of a higher safety level. Due to Covid-19, we are taking additional steps and applying even more rigorous cleaning and disinfecting protocols, as well as reduced capacity. We are actively following all Word Health Organization updates regarding Covid-19 and adjust our strategies accordingly, to ensure we meet the latest guidance of hygiene and cleaning.

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

PRE-BOARDING HEALTH SCREENING

  • All passengers are required to take a PCR Covid-19 test no more than 96 hours prior to boarding.

  • 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.
