How To Do Inspire Diagnostics At Home Health Test for #Cruise Travel

I recently took a 3-day cruise aboard Carnival Radiance from Long Beach, CA, to relax and recharge before I start my new career journey. My last cruise vacation was before the Covid-19 outbreak. First, I had to get tested for Covid-19 before my embarkation date in order to board the ship. On Carnival's website, here, they provide Vaccinated Voyages information and great details on how they are providing assistance to all guests. As of this blog post, you can get tested on your departure date at the port or at home within 24-48 hours before your embarkation date. The rules are constantly changing, with the cruise lines following CDC guidance, so make sure to look over their website for new options for vaccinated and unvaccinated guests. After reviewing their website, I decided to take the

Inspire Diagnostics At-Home Health Test, which can be purchased online, then I scheduled my testing date and time. This test is approved by the CDC for emergency use and is approved by Carnival because it is a proctored test. Zoom was used to connect with an authorized individual from the Inspire team. The process can be completed in 20 mins or less. This option is available to fully vaccinated guests. Now, Carnival is providing Covid-19 testing at port for a minimal fee to vaccinated guests, sailing for shorter cruise dates, and testing to all other customers at another price point. In the video below, I will walk you through the entire process of purchasing your at-home test for your cruise and taking the Covid-19 test LIVE with an Inspire Diagnostics representative.
