Passenger of SeaDream tests positive for coronavirus
A SeaDream I passenger on the previous cruise the vessel sailed tested positive for COVID-19 upon his return to Denmark, which meant that all passengers on the current sailing were told to stay in their staterooms.
SeaDream I is scheduled to arrive in Bodø on Wednesday morning.
Local health officials are expected to start monitoring passengers and crew, and no one will be allowed to land, according to local media reports.
In a letter to passengers, SeaDream confirmed that it did not yet know of any other passengers or crew being infected or displaying symptoms.
SeaDream I began the trip from Tromsø on August 2 and sailed back to Oslo, where the previous cruise started on July 21.
The Norwegian authorities are also seeking to meet the passengers on the cruise of 21 July.
SeaDream I has a capacity of up to 110 passengers and a crew of 85.
As a result of recent COVID-19 infections on board Hurtigruten's Roald Amundsen, Norway has recently banned any cruise ship with more than 100 people on board, including passengers and crew, from making calls for the next 14 days.
