Norwegian cancels Getaway cruise ship’s voyage after Pearl returns to PortMiami

The Miami-based Norwegian Cruise Line canceled the Getaway cruise ship’s Caribbean voyage on Wednesday.

MIAMI – The Miami-based Norwegian Cruise Line canceled the Getaway cruise ship’s Caribbean voyage on Wednesday.

The cruise line made the announcement after the Pearl returned to PortMiami after canceling its voyage to the Panama Canal.

The Getaway was supposed to depart out of PortMiami. The company announced both cancelations were related to COVID-19 cases.

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the agency started investigations at the Pearl, the Getaway, and 24 other cruise ships as of Wednesday afternoon.

There were also 66 more ships that completed CDC investigations and remained under observation. The CDC was also monitoring three other cruise ships.

On Thursday, amid the spread of the highly-contagious omicron variant, the CDC asked Americans to avoid cruises — regardless of their vaccination status.

The CDC recommends that cruise ship passengers get tested and go on quarantine for five days after docking.
