Thousands of passengers aboard a cruise ship, Costa Deliziosa finally had the opportunity to disembark from the ship after over two months on water due to the Coronavirus pandemic which caused major cities to go into lockdown globally.
But on Wednesday (April 22) thousands of passengers on board the luxury cruise ship, Costa finally disembarked in Genoa, Italy. They were stuck at sea for 15 weeks.
They had set off from Venice on a four-month around the world trip in January, before much of the world went into lockdown…leaving them stranded at sea with no ports willing to let them dock.
While other cruise ships suffered major outbreaks, such as the Diamond Princess, which had more than 700 cases among passengers and crew.
The Costa Deliziosa is understood to have remained a ”virus-free bubble.”
Costa Crociere, who runs the vessel, said they expected some 1600 passengers and over 900 crew to disembark in Genoa…
Some passengers already disembarked in Barcelona on Tuesday (April 21).
