MS Westerdam passengers test negative for coronavirus; hundreds allowed to depart Cambodia

Passengers from the Holland America’s MS Westerdam – the ship that finally docked in Cambodia last week after being turned away from multiple ports and later had one passenger diagnosed with coronavirus, prompting a new round of testing – can officially get on with their lives.

On Wednesday, the cruise line reported that the 781 passengers still in Cambodia tested negative for the virus.

“The Cambodian Ministry of Health has issued a press release confirming that 781 Westerdam guests have tested negative for COVID-19. This completes the guests’ testing,” Holland America said in a release shared with USA TODAY by spokesperson Erik Elvejord on Wednesday.
