Yeah, keeping them healthy was not forcing them to get the vax.
Royal Caribbean International is moving crew members who have tested positive for COVID to two of its out-of-service ships, Vision of the Seas and Rhapsody of the Seas, to quarantine as the pandemic continues to surge.
The cruise line confirmed the transfer of crew in a statement shared with USA TODAY by spokesperson Lyan Sierra-Caro and noted that the logic behind the move is to “keep our crew and ships as healthy as possible.”
The transferred crew members, who are all fully vaccinated, are in isolation and are being monitored by an onboard medical team. After each crew member completes their 10-day quarantine, they return to their assigned ships, Royal Caribbean said.
