SeaDream cancels all 2020 cruises after Covid outbreak onboard


Luxury cruise line SeaDream has cancelled all cruises for the rest of 2020 after multiple cases of Covid-19 on its recent cruise to Barbados.

SeaDream said multiple negative PCR tests were required before the guests boarded the ship SeaDream 1, but this was not sufficient to prevent Covid-19 onboard.

Seven guests and two crew members tested positive for Covid-19 by Barbados health authorities during the cruise, which had to be curtailed as a result.

"SeaDream successfully operated more than 20 sailings during the pandemic without any cases and further improvements were made to protocols before the Barbados season. The company will now spend time to evaluate and see if it is possible to operate and have a high degree of certainty of not getting Covid," it said.
