Four coronavirus cases have been found on board the cruise ship “Mein Schiff 2” operated by the Hamburg shipping company TUI Cruises. The passengers affected and their 20 contact persons are now on land and in quarantine in the Canary Islands.
The Hamburg shipping company TUI Cruises is slowly trying to get the cruise fleet back on track with strict requirements. Passengers must present a negative corona test before departing for the Canary Islands. Only 60 percent of the beds on board are occupied so that more distance can be maintained.
