This is an interesting article on the process to return the Diamond Princess to service. Pretty intense work.

Yeah, gonna be an expensive cleanse for sure.

Thanks for sharing! It’s amazing what needs to be done. Still not sure I would want to be the first passengers after the cleaning. Then again, that might be the best time!

There was an update. Princess did award a contract. Went to a company that fixes hospital sanitations issues. They expect to be up sailing the end of April.
