January 10. After new health regulations have come into play for Puerto Rico, Royal Caribbean has been forced to implement strict entry, testing, and quarantine requirements for cruises sailing out of San Juan. The new regulations include entry guidelines, a stricter testing regime before cruises, and testing before the vessel returns to Puerto Rico.
Those impacted the most by the new guidelines will be families with unvaccinated children and unvaccinated residents. The country is implementing a 7-day quarantine period for those remaining in Puerto Rico post-cruise.
Guests booked on cruises aboard Explorer of the Seas from San Juan will need to pay attention to many entry, testing, and quarantine regulations that the Puerto Rico government has required Royal Caribbean to comply with. There have been some notable changes since the last update from Puerto Rico.
