Celebrity Issues Coronavirus Travel Alert

Recommended Posts

Here is the link: Celebrity Travel Alert

 

Here is the main text:

 

We are closely monitoring global developments regarding the coronavirus, and we are fully focused on protecting the health and safety of our guests and crew.  After consultation with CDC, WHO and other public health authorities, we are implementing several measures to protect guests and crew. These steps are intentionally conservative, and we apologize that they will inconvenience some of our guests.  Until further notice, all ships in the Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. fleet will adopt these health screening protocols: 

 

1. Regardless of nationality, we will deny boarding to any individual who has travelled from, to or through mainland China or Hong Kong in the past 15 days. These guests will receive full refunds.

 

2. There will be mandatory specialized health screenings performed on:

Guests who have been in contact with individuals who have traveled from, to or through mainland China or Hong Kong in the past 15 days;

All holders of China or Hong Kong passports – regardless of when they were last in China or Hong Kong;

Guests who report feeling unwell or demonstrate any flu-like symptoms;

Any guest presenting with fever or low blood oximetry in the specialized health screening will be denied boarding.

 

3. These standards also apply to all employees, crew members and contractors of RCL.

 

4. We have cancelled all China and Hong Kong sailings through mid-February. Guests on cancelled cruises will also receive full refunds.

We have rigorous medical protocols in place to help passengers and crew members who feel unwell while sailing. Our protocols include professional medical treatment; quarantine of unwell individuals from the general ship population; and intensified ship cleaning, air filtration, and sanitization procedures.  We are assessing developments constantly and will update these measures, as needed.  Guests with questions may contact the customer care department of our individual cruise lines.

We are on Millie sailing of April 10th.   I've posted the travel alert on our roll call for info.  Itinerary is strictly Japan with one port in South Korea.   The sailing before ours has some ports in China.  Too soon to know if any impact. At this point just taking a wait and see approach and hoping for the best.  I feel for all those impacted and I think Celebrity is doing what they can given the ever changing nature of this outbreak.

"Any guest presenting with fever or low blood oximetry in the specialized health screening will be denied boarding."

 

Whoa. Good luck if you have COPD or asthma. Maybe that should read fever AND low blood oximetry.
