Keeping thousands of passengers safe in floating cities

How do you ensure passenger safety on an enclosed ship? Especially when they number in the thousands. The industry has changed since the pandemic, but this may not be a bad thing, since with new safety protocols and testing abilities on board - for a variety of pathogens - travel may be safer than ever before.
The goal is to have guests come back to our ships and sail again. Travel again. And to guarantee enhanced safety no matter where we are sailing.
In an enclosed space, like a ship, contact tracing actually works. So we have the chance, when we detect a positive case, to immediately start isolating and testing passengers.
