The first major cruise in the Caribbean set sail this week. SeaDream Yacht Club's SeaDream 1 set sail despite many warnings against doing so. They used strict pre-departure coronavirus testing guidelines. Even still, five passengers aboard the ship have now tested positive for coronavirus. Since the first passenger tested positive, the ship has docked in Barbados and is on lockdown. This is the first major cruise to embark in the Caribbean since March, says Business Insider.

  • Sinking Ship? How Trump's COVID-19 Might Hurt The Cruise Industry

    The stock market took a dive on Friday on news that US President Donald Trump has tested positive for COVID-19. According to Business Insider, industry experts think the cruise industry could take a hit from the news. Macquarie analyst Paul Golding says an event raising the visibility of the virus could 'potentially alter the timeline for full resumption for the cruise lines.' Golding added that anything that increases the likelihood of a new administration in January could negatively impact cruise supply and demand. He explained that a new administration would likely be less sympathetic toward cruise lines reopening without a vaccine. Furthermore, a Biden administration would likely be 'more keen to follow doctor, scientist, and expert recommendations.'
