Royal Caribbean Cruises shares fell about 4% on Friday after six passengers on board its Adventure of the Seas ship tested positive for Covid-19.
The four of those guests were fully vaccinated and not traveling together.

Couldn’t ask for more proof than this.
“Four of the guests, who are not traveling together, are vaccinated, three are asymptomatic and one has mild symptoms,” Royal Caribbean said in a statement provided by Sierra-Caro. “Two of the guests, who are in the same traveling party, are unvaccinated minors and asymptomatic.”
What does “highly vaccinated” mean? Three jabs, four, ten?
Show of hands of those that think this is gonna be like the flu and be a pain in the butt from now on. It ain’t goin’ away. The wonder vax obviously ain’t and wasn’t intended to stop the bug anyway, just reduce the complications of the symptoms. If you’re lucky.
They got the shot farther up their arm maybe?
Since demonrats hate cruise ships, I think the odds are better than even that demonrats do things like purposely infecting a ship to cancel it
There is a dark humor about all of this—at the exact moment that all sorts of institutions are demanding proof of vaccination, the proof we are getting is that the vaccinated are spreading the virus like rabbits.
I believe ...
At departure the ship just keeps off anybody who tests positive. So they sail with no negatives.
The tests are so poor that falses are inevitable.
Any tests during the sailing will result in spinning the roulette wheel. There will always false positives if you test enough.
Industry under the odds and toss of the dice will lose.
The benchmark MUST change. Tests cannot be absolute.
I for one will not board any ship that can leave me at any port of call and force me to make my costly way home, based on testing.
“What does “highly vaccinated” mean? “
Good question. The amount of magnets they can stick to their body?
Agreed like the flu in that it ain't goin' away and the "vaxx" won't make it.
But the disease is nothing like the flu genetically or in how it affects the infected. Flu season doesn't kill 70 vets in a single nursing home, my Army buddy and a cousin - admittedly all with pre-existings.
I guess the point is we need to stop calling intentional or unintentional bio-warfare "the flu," because it's not.
Are all pax onboard now locked down in their cabins?
Well since the so called COVID test can’t tell SAR 19 apart from any other flu, yeah.
Seems to be a trend with the vaxed getting and spreading…
Give it 6 months and stock up on your popcorn, with a few other things.
I can't imagine anybody going on a cruise in these conditions.
“More food that gets wasted on a cruise ship that could feed poor families for an entire year”. John Kerry(who served in Viet Nam).
“Food wasted on a cruise ship could feed thousands of families” The Kenyan.
Sounds like the left is applying the theory.
“Three of the four fully-vaccinated passengers had no symptoms and the fourth passenger had mild symptoms, Royal Caribbean said in a statement. The two unvaccinated guests are minors traveling in the same party and are asymptomatic.”
Here the laughable part...they test those in close contact with them immediately, ignoring the 5 day waiting rule after the contact. Of course everyone else is going to be negative. And this is why as much as I love cruising, I will not be on a ship. Not going to get locked into my room when the use a test the CDC says can not tell the difference between covid and the flu.
Yup—the .gov and FR spinners will stay in denial, but average folks out there are going to realize they were tricked into taking the vaccines, and they are gonna start having a serious _attitude_.....
This is gonna get ugly.
