Sea Dream I - 7 passengers test positive

Ben Hewitt and David McDonald are quarantining on board SeaDream Yacht Club's SeaDream I, acruise ship that has had at least seven COVID-19 cases on board, according to an announcement from the ship's captain, and is currently docked in Barbados.

"We were surprised when we heard the news that the virus was on board," Hewitt told USA TODAY Friday, noting that passengers were required to have two negative COVID-19 tests prior to boarding and had their temperatures checked daily. The ship, they said, was also cleaned daily.

The ship was one of the first cruise ships to sail in Caribbean waters since the pandemic began and ended its trip early after multiple passengers tested positive for COVID-19, officials said Thursday.
