NYC woman booted from Royal Caribbean cruise after testing positive for COVID

A New York City traveler flipped out when she was kicked off a Royal Caribbean cruise for having COVID-19 — fuming that the company “falsified” her test results, according to wild footage.

Laura Angelo, 57, of the Bronx, live-streamed her own meltdown as she screamed at staffers who booted her from a Freedom of the Seas in Nassau, Bahamas, on July 7,  according to her now-viral social media posts.

“I’m gonna be in charge of my own f—cking life,” Angelo rages at ship staffers in a series of Tiktok and Instagram videos. “I’m tired of Royal Caribbean telling me what to do as you’re f-cking lying to us.”

She adds angrily, “Royal Caribbean illegally falsified my Covid test to make it positive. Little did they know I already had Covid and high antibodies when they did that.”

Angelo said the cruise company at first accidentally gave her and a travel partner, Valerie Murphy, 62, purple “vaccinated” bracelets, which serve as entry passes to the ship, according to the Miami Herald.

When the firm realized its mistake, workers made them take COVID-19 tests — and one of them came back positive, the paper reported.

But after she returned home to the Big Apple, Angelo said she tested negative for the illness twice, proving she didn’t have the virus as she boarded the ship.

During the rant, Angelo can be heard shouting, “This is bulls-t!” as workers appear to roll her in a wheelchair toward an ambulance outside the ship.

She later gripes that she’s going to have “heart attack live on f–cking Instagram!” — adding “won’t this be a story for the freakin’ press.” 

A ship staffer can be heard saying plane is waiting to fly her to LaGuardia Airport, and the ship later continued its four-night voyage to Miami on Friday.

A Royal Caribbean Group spokesman didn’t to a request for comment about the allegation that the firm misidentified vaccinated passengers, according to the Herald.

Angelo’s angry Tiktok rant raked in more than 3 million views in less than a week.
