All crew members and adult passengers aboard the Celebrity Millennium had to prove that they were fully vaccinated before or at the time of boarding and had a negative COVID-19 test.
Passengers noticed that they were positive while taking the test before disembarking on St. Martin. According to celebrities, all their close contact was negative.
“Individuals are asymptomatic, currently isolated and monitored by our medical team,” Cruiseline said in a statement to ABC News. “We perform contact tracing, facilitate testing of all close contacts, and closely monitor the situation.”
A celebrity spokesperson explained that the two positive passengers would stay in Sint Maarten until the test was negative, after which the cruise line would help arrange the trip home.
The Millennium is the largest COVID-19 vaccination cruise in the world so far.
Celebrities called the vaccine a “game changer” so that it could resume surgery.
Vessels, which typically accommodate more than 2,000 people, operate at approximately 30% capacity.
“We don’t need masks or social distance because of our low occupancy,” Celebrity CEO and President Lisa Lutov Perlo told ABC News before the cruise began. “Guests will have plenty of space with plenty of dining options and activities.”
Celebrities have made some tweaks to their work-they have replaced their normally crowded master drills with an online version, and self-service buffets are no longer an option. Their clinic currently has two doctors and 11 nurses, with additional ventilators on board and in isolation rooms.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention still does not recommend cruise trips, but recently gave celebrities a green light at the end of the month to sail their first cruise from Fort to the United States. Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
