Now that European river cruising is starting to become operational again (so exciting!!) there are going to be some new Covid protocols going forward in order to keep both the passengers and the crew safe.
I looked at the top 8 river cruise companies that I sell and they all (except Crystal) will require that you have either a Covid-19 vaccination certificate or a negative Covid test done right before you board the ship. Crystal is the only line (at time of publication) that will require everyone have a Covid-19 vaccination certificate and a negative Covid test done right before you board the ship.
Each line will also require that passengers fill out some pre-departure documentation forms which can be viewed at their links below:
Ama Waterways – Prior to boarding, an online health and contact screening questionnaire will need to be filled out.
Avalon Waterways – Have 3 pdf forms you can view, the first being the Pre Trip Health Screening form – click Avalon-Health-Screening to view. The next is their Health & Safety Covid-19 Waiver – click Avalon Health-Safety-covid-19 and lastly is their onboard safety protocols which you can view Avalon Onboard-Protocols
Crystal River Cruises – Declaration of Safety included in their Clean River program Crystal-Clean-River
Emerald/Scenic – Have their cruise with confidence program viewed at River Cruise with confidence | Our commitment to your health & safety – Scenic°
