The leaders of the Princess Cruises fleet must come up with a curse. Nearly two years after the Diamond Princess’ memorable quarantine in Japan, another Majestic Princess cruise ship has docked in Sydney Harbor after being hit by a wave of Covid-19 infections, CNN reports.

Of the 3,300 passengers, about 800 have tested positive, as have a small number of crew members, Marguerite Fitzgerald, president of Carnival Australia cruise line, said Saturday.

“All of the positive cases were mild or asymptomatic, and these passengers self-isolated in their cabins and were then separated from the negative passengers,” Briana Latter, a spokesperson for Princess Cruises’ parent company, told CNN. Upon their arrival in Sydney, they were able to leave the ship freely. The ship’s personnel separately escorted the patients ashore and advised them to observe a five-day isolation.

The Majestic Princess has since left Sydney and is expected to take her next trip to Melbourne and Tasmania.

In February 2020, another ship from the same company, the Diamond Princess, also hit the headlines with the Covid epidemic on board in the midst of the pandemic. The liner was forced to quarantine in Japan for several weeks.
