A 26-year-old Indonesian female crew of TUI's cruise ship Mein Schiff 4 has tested COVID-positive.

9 crew were quarantined during the last days of the voyage.

The Indonesian woman had symptoms of the virus and tested positive on a swab test. She disembarked the ship in Salerno Italy, and was admitted to “Mauro Scarlato” hospital (Scafati) in good health.

The accident was reported to Salerno's health authorities. Health measures were taken and 9 direct contacts had been identified with all parts of the crew placed in isolation onboard. The first tests of the contacts were negative. More testing will follow in order to monitor the situation.

Due to the incident, Schiff 4's visit to Salerno had to be modified. On Wednesday, July 21, Mein Schiff 4 set sail from Civitavecchia-Rome, where all the crew-staff are tested again.

TUI Cruises' ship Schiff 4 has been sailing to the Italian and French Riviera since July 8, 2021, departing from homeport Genoa. The liner offers two 7-night itineraries that are combinable into a 14-day B2B.
