where can i find the raw data on the how many  covid cases on the recent cruise sailing?   Not just royal, thanks

Why not start with an Access to Information request from the CDC?

i have found the CDC Cruise flag conditions, but there is no information on the amount of cases per sailings

i know that for the most part each sailings will have covid cases on board, I just want to now HOW many?

thanks

With the info we've seen, I'd say hardly any, but why do you need the info?

I would love to see this data too. There were two unvaccinated children who tested positive mid-cruise on my 6/19 Adventure of the Seas sailing. It would be great if people would report what they've been told on their sailings.

it should be public knowledge and easily accessible.  I personally know that three families were affected on a recent cruise.  One family escorted off and the two others under quarantine   

but there was no reporting of the covid cases. Also, CDC has the color status yellow for the freedom of the seas  which means it is being monitored and could trun red. If it turns red that it returns to port

thanks

I don't believe this statement is anywhere near accurate.

As far as I know, majority of Royal and Celebrity sailings have been successful in keeping covid off their ships.

Of course, every cruise line will have a case or two pop up every so often, especially with the fast spreading the delta variant.

 

What is important is how the cruise lines handle a positive case of covid. 

 

They all seem to have same or similar protocols in place which seem to be working just fine in preventing any type of spread on board.

yes, you are absolutely  How the cruise handles it is very important. 

I think Royal has done an excellent job handling the covid cases, but i personally know of cases not being reported

which is where my concern is  

thanks

RCI, or any other cruise line, is very unlikely to help you with that. Now that sleaze ball lawyer OTOH......

If i remember the language in the CSO correctly, there is a threshold percentage that would trigger the type of reporting you are requesting.

Any/all cases are supposed to be reported to the CDC for US based sailings, which would put the ship under something other than Green condition on CDC web site. Serenade is the only currently sailing ship which is Green.

Biker19,

 

yes the CDC is showing many of the sailings with covid cases-  is it that hard to know the hard data?

and when he cdc says threshold ?  how many is the threshold for Red that would mean return to port?

The criteria for the colors are listed on the CDC web site. As mentioned earlier, go petition the CDC to give you what you are looking for.
