‘Hygiene is the new luxury’: How cruise ship design could evolve to ward against outbreaks

The world is acutely aware of the risks of boarding a cruise ship after coronavirus ran rampant on ships for the first few months of 2020, infecting hundreds and forcing passengers into quarantine – sometimes for weeks at a time, both while on board and after disembarkation, reports USA Today.
