Since Covid-19 was first reported as a world health issue, cruise ships have been the worst to suffer after airlines.
The experiences of those who were initially trapped on the Covid-19-stricken Diamond Princess are unimaginable. The cruise ship was rejected from docking at one port, territory and country after another.
The MS Westerdam, an American ship with over 2,200 passengers and crew suffered the same fate. It too was denied docking rights in no less than five countries – Japan, Taiwan, the Philippines, Thailand and the US territory of Guam.
