Cruise Ships With Sick People Dock In Florida

When cruises first resumed in Europe over the summer there were problems, including an outbreak on a Norwegian Hurtigruten line ship in which 71 passengers and crew tested positive for the coronavirus. The outbreak sparked a government investigation and forced the cruise line to cancel sailings until next year.

Since then, other lines have resumed limited cruises in Europe, using health and safety protocols that require all passengers and crew to be tested before embarking. The industry says similar protocols will be in place when sailings resume in the U.S. In a statement, the Cruise Lines International Association says it is confident it can resume sailing safely from U.S. ports, building on what it hails as its «success» in Europe.
