The Covid Cruise

About the Show

The Covid Cruise is the story of how a luxury cruise ship was swept up in the drama of the unfolding coronavirus pandemic. Everything the world experiences now, as we grapple with this deadly new disease, happened early and quickly on the Diamond Princess: rapid infection, asymptomatic transmission, a heavy toll on the elderly, questions of how to test and trace, and dilemmas over whether to quarantine.Told through the eyes of passengers, crew and infectious disease doctors who were aboard the ship, The Covid Cruise takes viewers inside a coronavirus outbreak in gripping, terrifying and intimate detail. Travel along with a compelling cast of characters as their life-and-death journey takes them from a dream cruise to a quarantine nightmare and a dangerous evacuation home.
