Here is the explanation of the colors shown below the chart on the CDC chart web site....  

  • Orange status means the ship has reported cases of COVID-19 but is below the threshold for CDC investigation....

Could well be a current case, but the CDC page also says this under Criteria for Ship Color Status, "Ship color status is determined using surveillance data from the previous 7 days—regardless of voyage dates— and CDC investigation findings." 

A good number of cruise lines are alerting their passengers when there is a case onboard, at least in these early days, but not all (I've read reports where passengers learned about cases during their sailing from the news and they were never notified). Since this is HAL's first official voyage, time will tell which approach for information they will take.


Best Wishes for All Involved!

The major cruise line responses to the few cases that are showing up is to remove the passenger(s) at ports. Currently X's Edge is being delayed in Cozumel while a Covid pax is being removed by ambulance according to posts on their forum, which includes announcements from Captain Kate.

Nieuw Amsterdam is coded Orange in today's update, based on data submitted yesterday....

This has been mentioned elsewhere on CC, but today's update now has Nieuw Amsterdam coded Yellow, based on data submitted on Friday, 7/30. https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/travelers/crew-disembarkations-commercial-travel.html To date, there's been no official word of the reason for the color coding, whether it's from the Test Cruise or the 7/24 Sailing.
