7 cruise passengers "assumptive positive" for Coronavirus on superyacht SeaDream I

   November 13, 2020 ,   Accidents

The top-luxury superyacht SeaDream 1 cancelled its current Caribbean cruise and returned to homeport Bridgetown Barbados after passengers’ tests for Coronavirus/COVID returned assumptive positive results. 

Right after performing the preliminary onboard rapid testing and receiving assumptive positive results, the shipowner SeaDream Yachts advised local health authorities and set in motion its Coronavirus response protocols to protect the crew and guests.

SeaDream I's med staff tested all crew and all tests came back negative. SeaDream is now re-testing all passengers.

Every crew is certified for WHO’s Infection Prevention and Control for novel coronavirus course and COVID-19 Contact tracing course from Johns Hopkins University. SeaDream operated successfully earlier in 2020 in Norway, completing a total of 21 sailings during the summer season as the first luxury cruise line to resume sailing.
