Statement on Influenza A (H1N1)


The health and well being of our passengers and crew is our foremost priority, and therefore we are monitoring the international Influenza A (H1N1) situation closely.

Our ships and medical staff are already well equipped to prevent and contain the spread of contagious diseases, including Influenza A (H1N1). Even though the risk of contracting this illness is low, we are taking extra precautions, and will continue to be guided by advice from the CDC and other health authorities.

In an abundance of caution, some of the measures we are taking onboard all our ships worldwide include:

  • We have enhanced our screening practices for passengers and crew embarking our ships.
  • We are adhering to CDC guidelines for reporting and treatment of persons with suspect Influenza A (H1N1).
  • We will isolate and treat passengers and crew with suspect Influenza A (H1N1). Anti-viral medications that effectively treat Influenza A (H1N1) are currently available onboard all Princess ships.
  • We will continue our rigorous cleaning and sanitization of our ships to minimize the spread of any contagious disease. Our ships are routinely cleaned with a disinfectant proven to be highly effective against the flu.
  • We are communicating to our passengers and crew that they should take extra care to practice healthy habits such as washing their hands often.
  • We are asking passengers and crew to report to the medical center immediately if they exhibit any symptoms of flu.

    As always, we will continue to do everything possible to protect the health of our passengers and crew.
