Travelling without vaccination protection - from May 2023

For cruises on Hapag-Lloyd Cruises ships, no proof of vaccination protection or negative COVID-19 test results are required, provided the ships' cruising areas allow it. If testing and vaccination requirements differ for specific destinations due to local regulations, guests will receive the information with their travel documents. According to the currently valid vaccination requirements, this applies to journeys with the luxury ship MS EUROPA, which sometimes calls at Indonesia. For the voyages EUR2401 and EUR2402, vaccination is currently mandatory due to local regulations. Travellers aged 18 and over must be vaccinated at least twice against Covid-19. Certificates of recovery do not replace vaccinations.

Our cruise prices include cancellation insurance from ERGO Reiseversicherung AG. The insurance cannot be deducted from the travel price, it is an integral part of the booking. The deductible is 20% of the recoverable damage, but at least € 25 per person.

Furthermore, ERGO Reiseversicherung AG offers two all-round carefree protection packages for travellers resident in the European Economic Area (EEA), which additionally extend your insurance cover. Please refer to the additional information provided here in the section on insurance.
