The captain had disembarked from the cruise ship two passengers who did not comply with the measures
It is worth noting that a few days ago the captain of the German cruise ship Mein Schiff 6 of the company TUI had disembarked from the ship two passengers who did not comply with the measures for the coronavirus and got off for a walk.
According to the newspaper Merkur, the two passengers “left the rest of the group as soon as the ship docked in Piraeus. According to a TUI representative in the Berliner Kurier newspaper, the cruise was organized from 13 to 20 September with a starting point and destination, Heraklion, Crete. The behavior of the two passengers in the port of Piraeus violated the rules because “anyone who leaves the group risks being infected with the coronavirus and then transports it to the ship”.
It is recalled that the specific ship “cut the ribbon” of the resumption of the cruise on September 13. The ship was claimed by Malta and Italy for launch, however TUI chose Heraklion.
