Mysteries of Silhouette 3/6-15

Recommended Posts

After an arduous day of travel we are finally back in our home state. As journalists, we cannot stop asking ourselves questions about this recent sailing we were on. Don’t @ us, but maybe we can put our minds to rest through discourse here. Speculation has been rampant. 
 

1.  We understand why we had to go back to Miami the first time; to drop off a body 😞 Not sure if it was murder or suicide. Tragic. 
2.  We believe there was an at sea med evac the first night. We saw someone who appeared to be having a seizure night 1 in the dining room. We never saw anyone at that table thereafter so perhaps it was this poor gentleman and we hope he’s faring well. 
3. The Captain addressed the above two incidents and stated they were not related to the C-virus. 
4. When we returned the second time to Miami after having made headway south, as discussed on prior threads, two seemingly fit people got off on their own and chatted with police etc. then got into a taxi after taking Pics with the ship behind them. 
5. This time, the Captains communique did not stress it was unrelated to the virus, but said it was medical and needed “further evaluation.” (or observation) 

6. So what was it? If they were able to walk off themselves, why couldn’t we drop them at the first port? They left in a cab, not an ambulance or police car. 
 

We thought the crew was incredible and the ship immaculate. But we feel like a big piece of information we should be privy to. We are not at ease right now.

Welcome Home... although it's not the same as when you left!  We were booked on the cruise immediately after yours, so were following your sailing closely.

 

It was reported that there were 3 incidents:   1) was a death,  2) was a medical emergency,  and, 3) was a suicide.

 

The main topic of discussion once the news was released, was the fact that a man in his 40's who had been on the Silhouette cruise before your cruise tested CoronaVirus positive in Canada and reported that he had symptoms while he was on the ship. 

 

As journalists, this is a story that could actually affect you and your health.  I am trying to find out if, and when, Canadian Authorities notified X since no one on these forums has reported that Celebrity notified them of the potential risk.

 

Details are below:

The mystery for me is that the Silhouette was allowed to disembark passengers without any additional screening given the fact that B2B passengers and the crew were exposed to some one with the Coronavirus on the last cruise.

We just received a notice from Celebrity that a passenger on our sailing has tested positive.

We received one too.  We have Self quarantined since we got back. So far no symptoms.

Yes we got ours too. But - isn't there a chance that, considering the majority traveled to and from the port, even staying in hotels the night before - and the incubation period is 2-14 days, that they contracted during their travels home? I've stated several times here how we felt so good on the ship and felt it was immaculate, and our air travel home felt very unclean.

Inquiring minds want to know!  Other than a health issue there is no reason for a ship share info on medical emergencies, deaths, suicides, murders or domestic violence situations.  These are personal issues that are no ones business other than those involved.

Also received email notification about Covid on our ship and received a phone call from Provincial Public Health today informing us of the fact.  We were sent for testing this afternoon.

Do you have any symptoms or are you being tested just because you were on this sailing?
