The passengers had already left the ship and then tested positive for COVID notwithstanding that all guests were required to undergo “swab testing” before boarding and then once the voyage was over according to the regulations.
After the crew reportedly tested negative, Costa Diadema set sail on a Mediterranean voyage. However, on Thursday Costa Cruises announced that it had decided to terminate the current cruise of Diadema “in consideration of the epidemiological situation in France.”
No mention was made of the former guests who previously tested positive.
Costa Diadema is currently at Genoa, the port of arrival of her itinerary, from where she is expected to leave for a Mediterranean cruise on Friday, October 16.
