With travel advisories across the globe, four cruise ships were put in some form of lockdown over growing concerns of the novel coronavirus.
Here's what you need to know about each ship:
- Diamond Princess: Quarantined in Japan since February 4, at least 24 Americans are among the 175 people infected with the Wuhan coronavirus aboard the cruise ship. The ship is the site of the single largest outbreak of the virus outside of China.
- Westerdam: More than 2,000 passengers and crew are stuck on the Westerdam cruise ship after it was denied entry to its intended final destination in Japan, despite having no confirmed cases aboard. It has since been denied entry to Taiwan, the Phillippines and most recently Thailand.
- World Dream: More than 3,600 people were quarantined for five days on this boat in Hong Kong as a precautionary measure after three former passengers tested positive for the coronavirus. No confirmed cases were found. Passengers and crew were cleared to leave over the weekend.
- The Anthem of the Seas: The vessel was docked in New Jersey for two extra days after four returning passengers were sent to the hospital to be tested for the coronavirus. The four family members, and another 23 passengers, were all cleared of the virus and the ship set sail on Monday.
