MSC Grandiosa Crew Member Tests Positive for Covid-19
"..But it remains unclear how risky it might be for people to climb back onboard and restart an activity that, at the beginning of the pandemic, helped seed the virus around the world and was connected to several dozen deaths. “We are talking about minimizing the risk, not getting to zero,” said Stefano Vella, a Catholic University of Rome infectious-disease specialist who consulted with the Costa, one major liner that is poised to restart. “Getting to zero is impossible.”.."

Built together, died together. RIP Monarch & Sovereign. 😭
Live From Ponant: Sailing on An Expedition Ship In France -- Masks And All "My conclusion is that Ponant is doing a great job. They make you feel that they have done all what is possible to keep the cruise safe, and ask passengers to help by doing their part of the job. They don't talk about chemicals and ozonisers and UV light. They rather make you feel that they have the right protocols. After a few days I understood through a lot of small details that they take it very seriously."
Hope everyone are safe and healthy!
Are these procedures being followed by SeaDream, whose Norwegian coast voyages are open to residents of other Scandinavian countries suffering differing caseloads of COVID-19 (or has SeaDream gone rogue)?
