Travelling with us when pregnant

Here is all you need to know if you are planning to travel with us pregnant.

Can I travel when I am pregnant?

Yes, depending on how far into your pregnancy you are. Please advise us at time of booking or as soon as you are aware that you are expecting a baby.

Pregnant guests can travel with us up to the 24th week of pregnancy . If you will enter the 24th week of your pregnancy at any point during the cruise (i.e. you are 23 weeks + 1 day or more at any point in the cruise), unfortunately you won’t be permitted to travel with us.

All pregnant women are required to produce prior to travel a doctor’s or midwife’s letter on headed notepaper stating that mother and baby are in good health, fit to travel and the pregnancy is not high-risk. The letter must also include the estimated date of delivery (EDD) calculated from both Last Menstrual Period (LMP) and ultrasound (if performed).

Please send your letter to the Health Services Department via email to

Please note: For guests travelling to United Arab Emirates please be advised if you are pregnant we recommend you visit the Foreign and Commonwealth Office website for guidance on what to know if you need medical treatment ashore in the UAE.

Can I cancel my booking free of charge if I am pregnant?

Yes, providing you were not aware that you were pregnant prior to booking and that you will be entering your 24th week (or more) by the final date of your cruise. This would only apply to guests booked under the pregnant guest’s booking reference and does not apply to any linked bookings, or other parties who may be travelling with you.

You will be required to supply written confirmation from your doctor or midwife of your estimated due date. This must be supplied on practice headed paper with a practice stamp.

This should be sent to our medical team who will place a note on the booking. If you made your booking through a travel agent, please contact them after sending the above to the following address.
