Norwegian Cruise Line, which requires all guests and crew members to prove they have received the experimental COVID shots prior to embarkation, has just reported an outbreak on one of its so-called “fully vaccinated” ships.

The international cruise line also runs ships to Alaska throughout the cruising season, but only for those who submit to COVID shots. It turns out that the jab does not guarantee against an outbreak on board.

According to a new report from NPR at least 17 COVID cases were reported in a late November Norwegian cruise in New Orleans in which all crew and passengers were vaxxed.

The Louisiana Department of Health also confirmed the outbreak to the Epoch Times.

“Governor John Bel Edwards, the Louisiana Department of Health, the City of New Orleans, and the Port of New Orleans are aware and working closely with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to initiate existing COVID-19 agreements and protocols with the cruise line,” the Louisiana Department of Health said in a statement.

The breakthrough brought an end to the trip for more than 3,200 people on board, the Times reported. This comes at a time when vaccine efficacy is diminishing across the nation and around the world with increased cases among those once deemed “fully vaccinated.”

Norwegian Cruise Line offers seven-day trips from Seattle to Southeast Alaska during the summer cruising season. Last summer it was the first major cruise line to implement a vaxxed-only policy.

According to Norwegian’s website, the company instituted its COVID injection mandates for all passengers and crew members in order to let passengers “do what you’ve always wanted to do on a cruise — EVERYTHING. No masks. No social distancing.”

While the CDC is still pushing COVID shots, the agency admits that the effectiveness of the jabs wane over time, and it claims that booster shots are now needed. According to the Mayo Clinic, those deemed “fully vaccinated” can still contract the virus and spread it to others.
