MEXICO CITY (AP) — Operators of a British cruise ship that was turned away from its destination due to fears of the new coronavirus say they’ve chartered planes to ferry passengers home.
But they don’t yet have permission to dock anywhere.
The Braemar had been scheduled to disembark its hundreds of passengers in the Dominican Republic on Friday.
But it was still cruising through the Caribbean more than a day later, with no immediate word on where it might wind up. Fred Olsen Cruise Lines said Saturday that nobody aboard had symptoms consistent with the COVID-19 illness.
Dominican officials were concerned by some influenza-like cases on board.
