Caribbean cruise cut short as passenger tests positive

Seadream’s first Caribbean cruise since March has to be cut short as passenger tests positive for coronavirus

SeaDream I was on its first Caribbean cruise when it had to turn around and head back to Barbados after a passenger tested positive for Covid-19. Passengers were required to show proof of a negative test before boarding the ship on Saturday, November 7, and took another test on Wednesday. One passenger requested a retest as he was feeling unwell, and it came back positive for coronavirus.

All passengers have been asked to self-isolate in their cabins. There is a mix of nationalities on board, including ten people from the UK. Prior to the positive test, the cruise ship had already stopped in St Vincent, Canouan, the Tobago Cays and Union Island, where passengers were required to socially distance and were not permitted to come into contact with locals.

Freelance writer Sue Bryant is aboard the ship.

“The ship’s doctor is testing everybody as we sail. We are all hoping the test was a false positive but what will happen when we reach Barbados, of whether we will all have to isolate there, nobody knows.”She added: “Until now, we have felt completely safe.”
