The pandemic has definitely affected the travel industry that we all know. Despite the increased number of deaths and effects on the travel industry. Vaccines becoming available will turn around the fortunes of this industry. The pressure of travel starved customers has led to a cruise ship company. To offer a trip to no particular destination. The airline’s industry has also recently tested this concept. Unfortunately no sooner had the ship left port. When an elderly gentleman was tested positive. After complaining he did not feel well. The ship immediately returned to port and the man taken to hospital. However, that was not the case for the 2000+ crew and passengers.
The cruise ship state that there are agreements on safety measures with the relevant government authorities. A strict trace and test procedure. Means all the remaining passengers and crew have to be tested. Perhaps it is too early for attempts at trips such as these.
