Face mask information

Do I need to wear a face mask on the ferry?


In accordance with public health guidelines, it is mandatory to wear face coverings at our ports and onboard our ships where social distancing isn’t possible. This applies to all routes on the Irish Sea and North Sea, including our Rosslare to Cherbourg route.


The following people are exempt from wearing a mask: children under the age of 11 years; if you have a physical or mental illness or impairment, or a disability that means you cannot put on, wear or remove a face covering; anyone for whom wearing or removing a face covering would cause severe distress; people travelling with, or providing assistance to, someone who relies on lip reading to communicate.
