SeaDream I Has COVID-19 Scare; Passengers Isolating in Cabins | TravelAgentCentral
SeaDream Yacht Club, which recently developed new health and safety protocols and a comprehensive, multiple-testing process, apparently has at least one COVID-19 (coronavirus) case onboard SeaDream I, which is sailing in the southern Caribbean this week. Gene Sloan, a senior reporter for cruise and travel at The Points Guy, was aboard the ship.
Guests onboard the 112-passenger ship have publicly reported that the captain took to the ship's public address system on Wednesday to advise that one passenger was feeling unwell and suspected of having COVID-19. Guests and non-essential crew were asked to isolate in their accommodations for at least 24 hours. The ship, sailing on an itinerary that included St. Vincent and the Grenadines and Barbados, began sailing back to Barbados after the situation developed.
