24 July 2020Other Incidents
On July 24, 2020, TUI's Schiff 2 departed from homeport Hamburg on a weekend roundtrip (cruise-to-nowhere) in the North Sea / Baltic Sea. On this 3-night special voyage, passengers spent the weekend at sea (without visiting any ports) prior to returning to Hamburg on July 27.
The liner's max occupancy was limited to 60% (to allow passengers to keep their distance from one another) but that level was not reached anyway as the ship carried ~1200 tourists. Crew and passengers were required to stay 1,5 m (5 ft) away from one another or wear face masks. The Lido buffet was waiter-served. Prior to boarding/embarkation, all passengers were required to fill out health questionnaires and also had their temperatures taken.
