UnCruise: No Transmission of COVID-19; Guests Returning Home; Updated Timeline | Cruise Industry News
UnCruise Adventures confirmed today that the majority of last week’s quarantined guests were cleared and released over the weekend following a COVID-19 scare aboard.
The original COVID positive guest returned home just a few days later.
The company implemented a swift contingency plan and strict quarantine last week upon the news of a positive test onboard, the company said, and immediately canceled its four subsequent sailings in Alaska for the summer.
Revised news now shows all tests received back for guests and crew are negative and there was no transmission onboard. However, the season will not be restarted.
“Strict planning paid off,” said Captain Dan Blanchard, UnCruise Adventures Owner, and CEO. “We were able to act quickly, but that doesn’t mean this event has not been painful to our company and guests. Our policies held up and may be a footprint for future sailings and the industry.”
