After Four Days on the Water, Cruise Will Return to Juneau with COVID-Positive Passenger - KTUU
UnCruise Adventures has canceled all future departures in Alaska after a passenger on the Wilderness Adventurer was notified by the State of Alaska that they had tested positive for COVID-19.
Wilderness Adventurer left Juneau on Aug. 1 in its first sailing of the year for a 7-night excursion in remote areas of Southeast Alaska. The cruise had 36 guests and 30 crew onboard, City and Borough of Juneau said Tuesday.
The cruise will return to Juneau on Wednesday morning so that passengers and crew can quarantine. Passengers will stay at a local hotel and crew will stay on Wilderness Adventurer at port.
The company said the COVID-positive guest had previously received a negative test result before boarding Wilderness Adventurer and was not showing symptoms of the virus. On Tuesday, the passenger was on the boat when they received a call from the State of Alaska notifying them that they had tested positive for the virus.
