TESTING POSITIVE ONBOARD?


Recommended Posts

Quarantine, contact tracing, when placing positive person and contacts afloat on a so called tender boat to fend for themselves. 🙂

 

likely the Cruise line will have "deals" with countries for medical care. But, the truth is no one knows what it would bring, because the future of cruising has yet to begin in the good ole USA. (For US based cruising)

I've also noticed most lines have this statement, but don't know what a "certain threshold" is:

 

"If a certain threshold level of COVID-19 is detected onboard the ship during your voyage, the voyage will end immediately, the ship will return to the port of embarkation, and your subsequent travel, including your return home, may be restricted or delayed".

In all seriousness though I believe all resumed ships has a certain number of rooms are converted to negative pressure rooms to isolate those COVID positive passengers.

We'll all learn the protocols at the same time and when they are ready to communicate them.  For now, just think pleasant and positive thoughts. For us it's just 96 days and a wake up until we board the CB.

It has been reported in the news that some Caribbean ports are still not listed as ports-of-call until the port agrees to take any COVID-19 pax when the ship is in port.  That tends to me to say that all ports-of-call (most?) have to agree to accept pax that test positive for the virus.  Stay tuned for more information.

I can't believe we are approaching the one year mark of being on the Coral Princess when all cruising was "paused"!  During the "pause" there were still closed to 2000 souls on the ship between passengers and crew.  
First they started social distancing and enhanced cleaning above and beyond what they were already doing when the news media  was talking of the spread of the virus. As far as we knew there were no active cases onboard at that time. They tried to get folks off the ship in Buenos Aires and in fact many were able to get off and fly home.  But there were also many who missed flights and came back to the ship. About 12 days later we had our first cases onboard. Then we were all confined to our cabins.
One of the ill persons was taken off in Barbados. Several were in the Medical Center. And we were trying to get into port.  No country would accept us.
So after 3 weeks of our "cruise to nowhere" we finally docked in Miami.  We know so much more now about symptoms.   So who knows how it will be handled now?
