Some sixty cruise ships are the subject of investigations by the American health authorities because of the risk of the spread of Covid-19.
L’Odyssey of seas said last week that 55 of its passengers had tested positive.
All passengers have been cleared to disembark at Port Everglades, Florida. A few hours later, the ship welcomed new tourists, not completely reassured.
“I’m a little nervous, I was a little hesitant to come, but I have already paid“, breaths a lady before boarding.
“We try to be optimistic, and if we get stuck“, defends a man about to board the ship.”All our friends are there, and a priori, we will not miss anything. And then as long as the shows go on and the bars and bars stay open, I think we’re going to have a good time.“
“It’s very exciting“, smiles a young woman.”I have been waiting for two years now, I have been vaccinated and I will wear my masks, even in places where it is not compulsory, out of caution.“
The Covid had caused the suspension of cruises for more than a year and the sector is now threatened by the Omicron variant.
According to the American press, several cruise ships have been refused a stopover in different Caribbean ports.
