Am I reading this correctly? Babies and people who are ill with diabetes are not allowed on the evacuation ship? People have to get a Covid test before getting on board? Where/how would people get such a test on an island in crisis?

As far as the requirements, I assume those were required by the cruise line, to give FREE transportation. I figure there are probably places to get a test on St. Vincent., considering they would have had to have them there before. And you think that SXM is going to accept people from anywhere who haven't been tested??

Hi five to the cruise line for providing this.

I can certainly see Celebrity's position as a good deed could end up turning into a nightmare for them and they have to be sensitive to St. Martin requirements. I pray that the US Embassy will make arrangements for the children, pregnant women, sick, etc.
