Does anyone know what the P & O covid testing costs is for guests getting on and off the ship in France and Spain please? 
 

Thanks in advance. 

As I understand it, you don't need any tests to enter France or Spain at present.

I do not know about Portugal, but it appears there is for Spain.  However, we have been told that our Pre-Cruise LFT will be accepted by Spain for entry on our cruise next week.  Our first port will be Cadiz (the same as for Princess) and we will not be calling anywhere else prior to that.  Cruise requirements may well differ from fly holidays though.

Aurora will not be sailing this October - if you are thinking about October 2022, everything will likely be totally different as things are changing week by week.  If you have made a mistake about your ship, I have made a comment about Spain in my comment above, but could easily change, even by October this year.

You do not need a test to enter Spain, as long as you are fully vaccinated.

You do for Spain according to FCO Travel advice unless double vaccinated

I believe wowzz, just like me, is assuming that all UK adults will have been double jabbed if they are going abroad.

There may well be a difference if arriving by cruise ship.  Also Spain is reviewing it's decision every Thursday about whether cruise passengers can go ashore independently, or be restricted to ships excursions, so a test may be considered relevant in that decision.

 

Two weeks ago passengers would have been able to go ashore independently in some Spanish ports, then last week it was allowed in all Spanish ports which were on our cruise itinerary, as well as ports for another ship which is currently sailing to Spain from the UK.  This Thursday onwards, or any week after that, well who knows........
