Health Minister Senator Mary Isaac was quoted in local media saying that while there was no suspected case on coronavirus, there were “some people suffering from upper respiratory track infections,” and for that reason, the ship was not allowed to dock.

It is unknown how many passengers are suffering from the infection.

It is also unknown what is the cause of the infections.

The ship is departed from Barbados on Jan . 30 for a two-week roundtrip sailing, with scheduled calls in St. Vincent, Dominica, Guadeloupe, St. Johns, La Romana, Aruba, Curacao, Bonaire and Grenada.
