After 13 days at sea and refusal by 5 ports, passengers aboard the Westerdam cruise ship are slated to disembark in Cambodia

Passengers aboard the Westerdam luxury liner received good news on Wednesday: they will be able to disembark in Cambodia.

The Westerdam on Wednesday set sail for Cambodia, where its passengers will be able to disembark, after panic about the coronavirus prompted five ports to turn away the luxury line.

The current cruise began in Hong Kong on February 1 and will end on Thursday morning in Sihanoukville, the ship’s operator Holland America Line said in a statement to Insider.

“All approvals have been received and we are extremely grateful to the Cambodian authorities for their support,” the statement said.
