Pregnant Women and Infants

Restrictions for Pregnant Women and Infants

Cruise lines requesting a physician's letter (faxed in advance or hand delivered at time of check-in) will require this letter to state that woman and baby are in good health, fit to travel, and that the pregnancy is not high-risk. The letter must also include the expected date of the child's birth.

Celebrity Cruise Line

Pregnant Women: Permitted to board if pregnant for 23 weeks or less on day of embarkation. A physician's letter must be faxed to the Access Department (1-954-628-9622) for women in any stage of pregnancy.

Infants: Infants sailing on a cruise must be at least 6 months old as of the first day of the cruise/cruisetour. However, for trans-Atlantic, trans-Pacific, Hawaii, select South American cruises/cruisetours and other selected cruises/cruisetours, the infant (as of the first day of the cruise/cruisetour) must be at least 12 months old. For the purposes of this policy, any cruise that has 3 or more days consecutive at sea will require infants to be 12 months old on the first day of the cruise/CruiseTour.

Hurtigruten Cruises

Pregnant Women: Women who are more than 28 weeks pregnant are required to notify Hurtigruten at least 14 days before departure and produce a medical certificate confirming fitness to travel. Each case is considered individually. It is recommended that the passenger consult her doctor.

Infants: The minimum age for Antarctica sailings is 5 years old. There is no age restriction for all other destinations.

Silversea Cruise Line

Pregnant Women: Permitted to board if pregnant for 24 weeks or less on day of embarkation. A medical certificate establishing fitness is required.

Infants: Minimum age is 6-12 months depending on cruise ship. Parents must notify Silversea of any children 6-12 months and sign a waiver. Silversea does not provide for the care or entertainment of children, and reserves the right to limit all children under 3 years old.
