(Reuters)-American Cruise Line Royal Caribbean (New York Stock Exchange:) The group said on Friday that six guests on its Ocean Adventure cruise ship tested positive for COVID-19 in routine tests.
Royal Caribbean stated that four of the guests who did not travel together were vaccinated, and the other two were minors who were not vaccinated. Among the passengers who tested positive, only one passenger had mild symptoms.
The company said that the guests were immediately quarantined, their tour group and all close contacts were traced and tested negative. The guests and their tour group will disembark and return home later today.
The Ocean Adventure cruise ship set sail from Nassau, Bahamas on July 24, requiring all passengers 16 years of age or older to be vaccinated and tested negative before boarding. Those who are not eligible for the vaccine must show a negative test result before they can travel.
Cruise operators are one of the industries hardest hit by the pandemic. After calling at the port for more than a year, it has been slowly restarting operations.
