CANADA Removing Covid-19 Requirements October 1st!

Great news! Earlier this month, Princess introduced relaxed health and safety guidelines to welcome more guests on board. Certain countries, including Canada, maintained additional requirements for entry. Transport Canada has announced they are removing all their COVID-19 requirements to enter the country starting October 1, 2022.

This means Princess’ prepared to welcome all guests on cruises visiting, arriving or departing from Canadian ports, including the remaining of the season for our highly popular Canada & New England voyages. They also look forward to returning to Alaska in 2023 where Princess is the #1 cruise line and all our itineraries feature visits to Canada.

They can’t wait to welcome everyone on board who has waited so patiently for the past three years for these destinations to fully open. This is yet another step in the right direction that makes booking a Princess cruise to Canada & New England or Alaska seamless and hassle-free.
