I google translated this article. In the article there's also an audio interview with passengers "Martine and Theodore" who are currently onboard - see "Martine Interview"- maybe a French speaker here can listen and post what they are saying?  

 

Martine states that everyone on the ship is being tested and they are awaiting the results.

The American woman had documentation she was negative when leaving LAX.  It’s possible she contracted it while in Tahiti.

 

From LAX. Yikes! One of the worst areas in this country. She might have contracted traveling but she also might have had it and not tested positive yet when she took the test in the US.

 

Eventually folk will realize that just because you have a negative test that doesn't mean you definitely don't have it... you can test positive the next day.

Now that these small ships have tested the situation it is clear that cruising isn't any safer now than it was 6 months ago.

This is probably the reason that Hawaii has had a 2 week quarantine period upon arrival.

Better work on those protocols, evidently it's not working!

 

Wait until the CDC sees this.........tack on another 4 to 6 months from the Spring 2021 start up

Yep.  But there are people on cruise critic booking December cruises.

True she also could have contracted it on the ship --- who knows?  They are all being tested.

French Polynesia has had 62 cases in total and zero deaths.  
Their last new case was reported on June 28. I doubt very much  that she caught it in Tahiti.

Now that they’ve opened up to flights and tourists from all over the world, they will probably have more cases.  All the passengers on the ship are being tested.

And asking to provide documentation or a link from the person who tells them it won't sail. We should be happy that these people who are living in a utopia are willing to finance the cruise line. It means anyone who is waiting for a cash refund will be able to receive it somewhere down the line.

Crystal Cruises just announced no sailings for rest of 2020.  I’m sure other cruise lines will follow.

Anything is possible.  There are also false positives and false negatives.  While LA has been hit hard, it certainly did not originate there.  Large urban areas with major airports have had it pretty bad with the influx of people from all over the world.
