Let's hope they're not allowing the crew to go onshore then ... just saying as a Dorset person

Probably not unexpected if the crew have recently rejoined the ship and also not a problem if she is not sailing for another 10 days.

Sounds to me more like a bit of sensationalist journalism - who is to say that some of P&O, or any other cruise line's, crew have not tested positive, just not been leaked to the press.

I am sure that is the last thing anyone in the cruise industry wants to hear - especially as they (the companies) are obviously trying to be careful.

I'm sure it will be contained, and like David said, in ten days time hopefully all will be well. A wake up call never the less.

Stick them all in the QG cabins to relax and recover comfortably....

Though seriously, wasn't that the point of testing crew? They were never going to be 100% clear of the virus, any more than the thousands of people we test daily ashore or the [passengers who are tested before they are allowed to board. The idea is to identify those who are positive and deal with them. Of the thousands retuning to duty these won't have been the first and they won't be the last.

Good luck to them. I hope it goes well for them and they have an enjoyable cruise.
