A friend currently onboard Symphony called me this morning to tell me that so far 5 guests have tested positive and are being taken off the ship. Going cabin to cabin to test everyone again to make sure no additional cases are onboard. All pax had to show proof of vax to get onboard and proof of negative covid test prior to boarding and were all tested onboard as well. This cabin to cabin testing will be their third test in a matter of days. Looks like the onboard protocols are working well. Anyone else on board?
Also, saw that NCL Breakaway was 6 hours late leaving NYC yesterday (headed to Bermuda) as many pax didn't know about the Bermuda Gov't requirement to submit proof of vax and negative covid test and pay $75 to get a certificate to enter the country; had to provide the cert at time of boarding and many pax didn't have this certificate.
