Passengers of U.S. cruise ship leave vessel in Cambodia
Passengers aboard a U.S. cruise ship that was not allowed to dock at a number of ports around Asia amid fears over the spread of the new coronavirus have disembarked in Cambodia.
The 14-day cruise on the Westerdam was supposed to come to an end tomorrow in Japan.
But the vessel was turned away by Japan, Guam, the Philippines, Taiwan and Thailand despite the cruise line repeatedly saying that no cases of the illness had been confirmed on board.
Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen welcomed the first 100 passengers to get off the ship earlier Friday, handing them flowers.■
