How to avoid queuing for your pre-boarding FIT-TO-CRUISE COVID test certificate
If you're embarking on a cruise ship from Barcelona, you will require a "FIT-TO-CRUISE" / "FIT-TO-SAIL" COVID test before starting your cruise. The problem is that the queues for testing cruise passengers can be several hours long because thousands of passengers all need tests. The cruise appointed testing clinics typically work without an appointment. However, there is a solution. You can get a pre-boarding COVID test from an Express COVID testing centre geared up to test cruise ship passengers. With this service, you can avoid the long queues and get tested fast. The cruise specialist testing centre only works by appointment, which is how they can offer such a fast service. The Express COVID test centre set time slot quotas to ensure you get tested rapidly and will not accept further bookings once a time slot quota is reached. It is, therefore, important to book your COVID test well in advance. This testing centre issues COVID certificates that meet the specifications of any cruise ship entering Barcelona. You can feel confident you will have the right paperwork for boarding your cruise.The Express COVID testing service can issue cruise pre-boarding COVID certificates for the following cruises and many more:
AIDA, Azamara, Celebrity Cruises, Costa, CroisiEurope, Cunard, Disney, M/V Clio, MSC, Norwegian, Oceania Cruise, Ponant Cruise, Princess, Regent Seven Seas, Royal Caribbean, Sea Cloud, Seabourn, Silversea, Viking Cruise, Virgin, Windstar
