3,711 passengers and crew. 14-day quarantine. 1 deadly infectious disease. Coronavirus aboard the Diamond Princess cruise ship.

TORONTO – A new documentary aired yesterday on CBC in Canada that explores the COVID-19 crisis on board the Diamond Princess. ‘The Covid Cruise’ is from The Nature of Things, CBC’s long-running documentary program.

In a preview trailer for the ‘The Covid Cruise’, host David Suzuki notes that in 2020 the coronavirus struck 73 cruise ships, leading to more than 3,000 infections and nearly 100 deaths.

One interviewee notes that in the wake of the Diamond Princess outbreak, Princess Cruises offered everyone onboard a free cruise for the future. “And despite what you might think, every passenger I talked to said they were going to take them up on it in the future.”
