Well, fast forward two years, and another ocean liner—Royal Caribbean’s Spectrum of the Seas—is stuck in a similarly hellish limbo with 2,500 passengers and crew at the mercy of swab-wielding medics after nine people are suspected of being infected with the Omicron variant of the coronavirus.

The ship, which disembarked last Sunday on a “cruise to nowhere”— meaning it wouldn’t make any port calls to avoid contracting COVID-19—had to return to Hong Kong a day early because of fears that the highly contagious variant would spread.

The cruise-ship cluster is said to be tied to a group of Cathay Pacific flight attendants who bucked isolation regulations and went out partying on a stopover after flying into Hong Kong from America."
