The Truth Behind Those 'Covid Cruise' Headlines When Ships Began Sailing Again | Shipmonk UK
As the lockdown began easing, a few cruise ships started sailing again – only to be met with a flood of headlines about passengers testing positive for coronavirus.
There was one serious outbreak, on a Hurtigruten ship, but the rest?
US small ship line UnCruise sailed off on its first Alaskan voyage, only to have to turn back when a positive result came through from a passenger who had been tested on arrival in the state. Fellow guests were put in quarantine on board and ten other cruises were cancelled. What happened next? The passenger subsequently tested negative. ‘There was zero virus transmission on board,’ an UnCruise spokeswoman said.
