Since April, she has been volunteering as a front-liner in the healthcare sector and was converted into full-time staff several months later.

She added: “I was so chill about being turned away because I believe things happen for a reason, and the most we do is try to see the good in everything. Praying for everyone’s safety tho”.

She wrote on Instagram: “Tq for the love guys but I’m a big girl… I can handle not being able to cruise”.

She also shared a letter she received from Royal Caribbean International where the cruise line extended their sincerest apologies after they weren’t able to welcome her on board the ship as a result of not meeting one or more of the cruise’s health protocols or policies.

They also offered Jade a refund on any taxes and fees as well as prepaid items purchased via Royal Caribbean International.
