December 23. As omicron continues to spread across the country, COVID-19 cases are continuing to emerge on cruise ships.
Carnival Cruise Line, Royal Caribbean International and MSC Cruises are among the cruise lines currently dealing with clusters of cases on board resulting in a myriad of scenarios including protocols kicking in to mitigate spread, itinerary changes and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention investigations.
The CDC has been working with global public health experts and industry partners to learn about omicron, spokesperson Dave Daigle told. “We are still learning how easily it spreads, the severity of illness it causes, and how well available vaccines and medications work against it.”
