CEO Liberty says "This positivity rate is still a small fraction of what it is in society at large, and nearly all cases onboard were asymptomatic or had mild symptoms."
During an earnings call onn Friday RCL Group CEO revealed theit Covid positivity rate. He said, "Since restarting operations in 2020, Royal Caribbean Group has carried approximately 1.3 million guests, with about 2,500 guests testing positive for COVID-19, for a positivity rate of 0.19 percent. This positivity rate is still a small fraction of what it is in society at large, and nearly all cases onboard were asymptomatic or had mild symptoms."
Liberty added, "Our rigorous health and safety protocols with 100% percent vaccination rate among our crew and close to 100 percent vaccination rate among our guests provide a safe environment where we can fulfill our mission of delivering amazing vacations. And our guests are responding by providing record Net Promoter Scores for us, exceeding their expectations."
Michael Bayley, president, and CEO of the Royal Caribbean International brand, added that "99 percent of the crew positivity was asymptomatic and the 1 percent was extremely mild symptoms. I mean, it really was remarkable in many ways. But the impact on the crew was effectively 0, except to take them out of operation for the period of their quarantine."
