Silversea announced on April 8 it has joined the list of cruise lines mandating that all crew and guests be fully vaccinated against Covid-19 before setting sail.

Similar requirements have been rolling out across the industry of late, with sister brands Royal Caribbean and Celebrity Cruises and others also unveiling mandatory Covid-19 vaccination policies.

Among the other Covid-related measures being deployed aboard Silversea ships are enhanced sanitation procedures, increased air filtration and expanded access to onboard medical care and medical personnel.
