By Dhirendra Tripathi – Royal Caribbean (NYSE:) stock fell by 2% in Friday’s premarket after two guests on board its Celebrity Millennium cruise tested positive for Covid-19.

The guests are asymptomatic and in isolation, and the cruise operator said it was conducting contact tracing and expediting testing for all those in close contact with the individuals.

Celebrity Millennium was one of the first cruises in North America to restart sailing last week.

Cruise operators are among the last companies to return to operations as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention laid out strict guidelines for their resumption after some ships were discovered to be hotbeds for the virus last year.

CDC’s guidelines included a fully vaccinated crew and everyone over 16 presenting proof of being vaccinated against the virus.
