Odyssey of the Seas denied entry to ports after COVID cases



Miami, Florida – After confirmed COVID-19 cases on board, a second Royal Caribbean ship has been denied entry to ports.
Odyssey of the Seas was not allowed to enter Curacao and Aruba after 55 fully-vaccinated crew members and passengers contracted COVID, according to the cruise line.

The ship remains at sea until Sunday when it planned to return to Port Everglades.

According to Royal Caribbean, everyone who tested positive is fully vaccinated and experiencing mild symptoms or is asymptomatic.

If you plan on going on a cruise, keep a few things in mind.

To board a ship, you must provide a negative COVID-19 test. And most of the cruise lines require adult and teenage passengers to show proof of full vaccination.

Masks indoors may be also required, depending on which cruise line you are sailing.

As always, check with your specific cruise line for all of their COVID-19 policies before you board a ship.
