Port Everglades-based Caribbean Princess was issued a 'no-sail' order while two crew members who transferred from Grand Princess are tested for coronavirus.
This according to The Miami Herald, citing a letter to passengers Sunday night.
Underway from Grand Cayman
The ship is on a 10-night southern Caribbean cruise. AIS data Tuesday morning showed it underway from George Town, Grand Cayman, to Port Everglades, with Wednesday arrival expected.
Monday night a Princess Cruises spokesperson told Seatrade Cruise News information would be coming.
According to the Herald, the two crew transferred from Grand Princess 10 and 16 days ago and were not showing signs of illness but were being isolated. The ship was to stop at Grand Cayman to collect test kits without allowing passengers ashore.
Follows Regal Princess testing, clearance
On Sunday, US health officials held Port Everglades-based Regal Princess offshore pending testing of crew who had come from Grand Princess. They were negative and the ship arrived into the port Sunday night to disembark passengers. However, Sunday's cruise was canceled.
Saturday, Royal Princess disenbarked passengers at the Port of Los Angeles before embarkation was held, pending the check of a crewman who'd joined from Grand Princess 15 days prior and showed no signs of illness, according to Princess. The March 7 cruise was canceled.
