Does my medical insurance cover me while I am in Cuba?
Please check with your travel insurance provider for the cover provided in Cuba.
Are there any vaccines required or recommended for travel to Cuba for adults and children?
Guests do not need any inoculations before visiting Cuba.
What should guests know about the Zika Virus before sailing?
Royal Caribbean International is committed to the safety and health of our guests and crew. We are closely monitoring the Zika virus situation and are aware that the CDC has issued a travel alert for certain countries (including Cuba) where Zika virus transmission is ongoing. Royal Caribbean will assist any pregnant women who do not feel comfortable sailing to countries affected with the Zika virus by providing alternate itinerary options.
This may include providing guests with a future cruise credit valid for two years so that they may re-schedule their voyage for a later date, with no penalty. Guests seeking additional information on the Zika virus are encouraged to contact their primary care physician or visit the CDC's website.
Can guests bring their prescription medications to Cuba?
As some prescription drugs may be illegal in Cuba, we recommend guests check with the Cuban Embassy to verify that all prescription(s) are legal to bring into Cuba. Guests should bring all medicines (including over-the-counter medicines) they might need while in Cuba.
The U.S. embassy website also recommends bringing a copy of the prescription and a letter from the prescribing physician explaining the need for prescription drugs.
CDC recommends guests should also carry a card that identifies, in the local language, their blood type, chronic conditions or serious allergies, and the generic names of any medications guests take.
