These are the  numbers I have seen post cruise positive in my facebook groups(since March)  and that's of those who belong to the group and bother to share their positive status.  Just takes one positive to take down so many, as we know on a ship, airplane, restaurant....

 

Ya to me and how full the boat was i was really surprised there wasnt more. Also my son was the only child in there so people with kids either arent testing and reporting or they arent getting it. Seems weird as we suspected he got it from adventure ocean.

Sorry for everything you went through onboard but this part is great news based on your earlier comment!

We literally were so well taken care of on board that we dont even mind now that we can still work tomorrow. That was the only part of the experience that made my stomach sink and regret cruising. We knew the risks on board but didnt know about the quarantining. Well of course not, because silly RC sent us a printout that expired last summer.

Glad you handled it so well (and were so well taken care of, not everyone's quarantine experience was like yours).

Unfortunately, as you now know first hand, giving out accurate info about anything is not RC's strong suit.

It's entirely possible he got it before he boarded the ship.

Its totally not possible as We fully did not go anywhere for 10 days before and he had to get a pcr test 3 days before the cruise and an antigen test on embarkation. Also he started getting symptoms on wednesday night which would put the incubation period monday when he spent the entire day at adventure ocean.

Sure, but all of the kids in adventure ocean had the exact same testing requirements in order to board 90%+ vaccinated ship...

Would you mind sharing where your cabin was? We were in 8572.. I totally believe it’s being spread through ventilation as well as in person. Just curious if  you were close to us. My husband tested positive Tuesday when we got home.

Covid has been sneaking through the testing since the restart. It will continue to do so. 

Unfortunately covid will always sneak in to any gathering of people. Having high vaccination rates help but they were never meant to prevent all disease. They were only developed to prevent severe illness and death. The best thing for cruisers to do when traveling is to minimize the risks as much as possible. I know masks are no longer required for vaccinated cruisers but I will still be wearing one especially when there are a lot of people around. Also wear a real mask not a cloth mask. Ideally a N95, KF95 or KN 94 mask. Also ensure to wear the mask properly. I do not think we will ever get to a point where COVID is non existent when cruising. But we can take steps to minimize its impact and spread. Its just like norovirus outbreaks on cruise ships; they will happen but if everyone takes steps they will not be common place. I hope your son recovers quickly.

We were in the other wing 86--

i did see others from deck 8 in the covid disembarkment area after you all left the ship. We all had to leave last.

@leesam82 agreed which is why I find it odd with all the pearl clutching when it inevitably does happen. People should know by now what they are signing up for when they cruise now. 

We totally knew what we were signing up for, and that covid was a poissibility. Were fine with getting it. The quarantining in the room part is hard though.

Really sorry to hear about your experience! We boarded the day you got off, and I almost considered cancelling based on your description, but we went through with it. It makes sense now why it took so long to board the ship. We stayed in 8138. Not sure how many were sick on our ship as they never discussed it. Staff members were all double-masked, but many passengers were not. People did use the hand sanitizer a lot. We basically felt great all week and tested negative Sunday night to fly home to the US Monday. We had already had omicron in January, after being vaccinated, so we weren't too worried about getting sick. Praise God we did not have to quarantine and made it home to our children.

Im so happy you guys have been ok! If the boat had 2000 passengers and there were 50 in the "covid room" the chances of getting it are still low ish. 
this hasnt deterred us from cruising and will hopefully be doing the 7 night pacific coastal in sept if all goes well.

He had a high fever and started coughing. I brought tests from home. Tested him and self reported it to the cruise line. Wanted to do the right thing by reporting it and trying to make sure no one else got it from us. 

I'm sorry this happened to you, but you absolutely did the right thing! Think I will pack some of our home tests on our next cruise just in case.
