Coral Princess arrived in Miami Port: Two dead
Guest disembarkation is expected to take several days due to limited flight availability, Princess announced, also stating that first disembarkation will be prioritized for guests requiring shoreside medical attention.
Disembarkation is scheduled to begin on Sunday April 5 for guests who are fit to travel. Those guests can move home flights directly from the ship to Miami International Airport.
Anyone with any respiratory problems, or who are still recovering from a previous illness, must stay on board until the ship's doctors have medically cleared them, the company said.
Onboard are 1,898 people including 1,020 guests and 878 crew members.
According to NBC Miami, a separate statement made aboard said two guests had died.
Coral Princess departed San Antonio (Santiago) on March 5 for a trip to South America scheduled to end on March 19 in Buenos Aires. In response to COVID-19's global expansion, Princess Cruises declared on March 12th a voluntary 60-day pause in operations, becoming one of the first companies in the leisure travel sector to take this constructive step.
