Default Another Cruise Outbreak

I would say cruising is toast until there is a vaccine.

One of the first ships to resume cruising is having a COVID outbreak

Quote:
All four of the hospitalized crew members had been sick for several days while on board the vessel, and all four had been placed in isolation. But the line said their symptoms weren’t consistent with COVID-19. They only tested positive for the illness after the ship docked in Tromsø early Friday.

It’s unclear if the crew members are seriously ill or only are being hospitalized as a way to keep them isolated.

The entire ship has now been placed in isolation, and all remaining crew — around 160 people — are being tested for COVID-19. The line also is tracking down 177 passengers who left the ship early Friday to alert them to the outbreak.
This is a shame because Hurtigruten only booked passengers from select countries and took many precautions.

Quote:
Hurtigruten had implemented a wide range of new health and safety measures on Roald Amundsen and the other ships it brought back into operation, including enhanced cleaning, added medical screenings for passengers and crew and an end to buffets. All the vessels were operating at a sharply reduced capacity, below 50% of normal, to ensure social distancing.
If they can't do it, I don't see anybody being able to cruise.
