Two passengers on Royal Caribbean’s Celebrity Millenium boat tested positive for COVID-19. Everyone on the ship was fully vaccinated.
The ship departed from St. Maarten on June 5.
“Today two guests sharing a stateroom onboard Celebrity Millennium tested positive for COVID-19 while conducting the required end of cruise testing,” the cruise line said. “The individuals are asymptomatic and currently in isolation and being monitored by our medical team.”
“We are conducting contact tracing, expediting testing for all close contacts and closely monitoring the situation.”
The cruise line’s COVID-19 health and safety policy required that all passengers 16 years and older be fully vaccinated at least 14 days prior to sailing.
“All guests on Celebrity Millennium were required to show proof of vaccination as well as a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours before sailing from St. Maarten this past Saturday,” the cruise line said.
“Celebrity Millennium is sailing with fully vaccinated crew and guests and following comprehensive protocols that align with our destination partners and exceed CDC guidelines to protect the health and safety of our guests.”
