Testing will take place as part of the cruise onboarding process.  You will be directed to the Inspire Diagnostics testing area by a Norwegian Cruise Line representative. The guest will register online through their phone and then provide the registration information in the form of a QR code to the Inspire representative.  The QR code is scanned to confirm your personal information and email address. Guests will then proceed to be tested. Once tested you will be directed to the waiting area where you will wait to receive your results via text/email. Once you have received your results and it’s negative you can proceed to Norwegian Cruise Line check in.

Guests will be tested with an FDA-approved rapid antigen test.  The test is self-administered under observation. The test uses a nasal swab, inserted about 1” into each nostril for 7-10 seconds.
