In North America, for the first time since the pandemic, the ship went on a cruise
In North America, a large ship has embarked on a cruise for the first time since the outbreak of the pandemic. The journey will last a week from June 5th.
The Celebrity Millennium departed from the port on the island of Sint Maarten on the evening of 5 June. This is the first cruise in North America since March 2020, when the world faced the coronavirus pandemic. Then one of the first cases of the disease was recorded in travelers on cruise ships.
There are about 500 passengers on board, more than 95% of whom have been fully vaccinated against the coronavirus. For children who had not yet been allowed to get vaccinated, it was necessary to get a negative coronavirus test result. All crew members are fully vaccinated.
During the week's sailing, the vessel will make stops in Barbados, Aruba and Curacao.
Celebrity Millennium ships usually sail from the United States. However, in order to resume cruises in the United States, certain requirements must be met. In particular, to carry out test voyages that will repeat the actual cruise requirements.
The first cruise ship is expected to sail to the United States in June from Florida. Before departure, all crew members and passengers over 16 years old must have a vaccination certificate.
