Caribbean Cruise Cut Short Due To Covid-19

November 13, 2020

The SeaDream Yacht Club vessel SeaDream I has cut short its first Caribbean cruise since the beginning of the pandemic due to a passenger aboard testing positive for Covid-19.

A USA Today story said, “SeaDream Yacht Club is heading back to Barbados after a passenger tested positive for COVID-19.

“The ship, SeaDream I, was on its first Caribbean cruise since the pandemic caused sailing to cease in March. The line had already had a successful transatlantic sailing, picking up passengers from Oslo, Rotterdam, the U.K., and Madeira, Portugal.

“Passengers on the current cruise had boarded the ship on Saturday. The ship had already called at St Vincent, Canouan, the Tobago Cays and Union Island, with trips ashore to empty beaches and for snorkeling in a carefully orchestrated bubble, with no contact allowed with local people.

“Passengers were required to take a COVID-19 test at home before flying to the island and test negative within 72 hours of travel. They then were given another PCR test by the cruise line’s ship doctor at the dock before boarding.”
