The Holland America cruise ship, Westerdam, has been allowed to dock in Cambodia after it was turned away from several other disembarkation ports over coronavirus fears. The 82,862 GT passenger ship Westerdam departed Hong Kong on February 1, carrying 1,455 passengers and 802 crew members. It spent two weeks offshore as ports in Taiwan, the Philippines, Japan, Thailand and Guam banned the cruise ship from docking due to the increasing threat of the coronavirus outbreak. The prohibitions came despite the fact that none of the ship’s passengers tested positive with coronavirus. On February 12, authorities in Cambodia granted docking permission to Westerdam and on February 13, the cruise vessel reached the Cambodian port of Sihanoukville. Passengers will undergo required health checks and afterward be sent home.
