    True or False?? Borealis and Covid

    Hi All

    A passenger is running a thread on Twitter stating he has been offloaded at Funchal because he was a close contact (shared a dinner table) of a passenger who tested positive for Covid 19.

    He reports the hotel could be better.

    Prior to arrival in Funchal he was quarantined in his cabin.

    Motto would appear to be don't share tables. I am naive - I thought was the default unless the bookings are linked.

    Is there any evidence they did not link bookings either before or on board as a volunteer bubble?

      From the twitter thread, it was stated it was a volunteer bubble??

      10 day enforced quarantine is a high price to pay JMO.

              We were on an MSC cruise in September and had a table for two.

              It was right next to another table for two. There can't have been more than three inches between them.

              So it was a table for four.

              Dining arrangements for the cruise company's convenience rather than passenger safety.

                So very true Garf.

                Interestingly Funchall was the 1st POC after Liverpool.

                Question is : Did someone embark at Liverpool with Covid 19 or was it crew?

                  On Britannia a few weeks ago they were asking in the MDR "Happy to share?" as in the past. Every time we said "No, a table for 2 please" and they gave us a table for 2. Others didn't mind and were placed on tables with "strangers". No enforced separation in the theatre either. Most kept a seat space between others but some didn't, notably those arriving very close to curtain up. My wife kept her handbag on the seat next to her and we had no problems.

                  Difficult to know how far to take this. All passengers had been double jabbed and tested negative before boarding

                    Until the UK positive case numbers come down (today's number is 45,000 v Italy 2700, may I suggest social distancing and mask wearing needs to re-introduced and implemented or use a covid passport app??

                    I can hear it already, what about large crowds etc etc. Well if the US Open can implement it with less than 48 hours notice, I don't see the issue.

                    Do we want to control this virus ?
