"The same ship docked in San Francisco on Thursday after a 10-day New Years party voyage—to Mexico and back—ended in a dozen passengers testing positive on board. According to the San Francisco Chronicle, the city’s port confirmed that a total of 724 passengers have left the ship, including the 12 passengers who returned positive test results."

"The news came as the omicron variant drives extremely high infection levels in the cruise industry, prompting the CDC to either investigate or observe nearly 100 vessels as of Thursday. Cruise ships are required to notify the CDC of suspected or confirmed positive cases on board, and any vessel with 0.10% of passenger cases meet the criteria for investigation."

Outbreak without widespread announcements

"A couple on board said there had been an outbreak among the performers on the cruise, NBC reported, leading to shows being cancelled and the couple isolating as a result.

“It was kind of disturbing that there wasn’t more widespread announcements about that … I think the only reason they announced that is because the shows were cancelled,” Diane Castillo told NBC."
