There was a moment of what seemed like sweet relief when passengers were able to disembark from Holland America’s MS Westerdam after being turned away from multiple ports, but things took a turn when a passenger from the ship was diagnosed with coronavirus on her journey home.
As a result, hundreds of passengers and crew members are finding themselves in limbo once again.
“Everything is a mess right now,” Steve Muth, a passenger from Michigan who was traveling on the Westerdam with his family, told USA TODAY Sunday morning. Muth and other guests were advised to stay in their rooms at Sokha Hotel and wait for updates.
