Norwegian Jewel arrived in Hawaii
Norwegian Cruise Line's Norwegian Jewel, which arrived in Honolulu on Sunday, March 22, 2020, is scheduled to disembark passengers, according to a press release, starting on March 23, 2020, when they board chartered flights south.
While there are no confirmed or reported ship-related cases of COVID-19, all guests must receive enhanced medical screening prior to departure.
Around 1,000 crew members remain on board.
“We are so very thankful to our Hawaiian partners and friends, especially Governor David Ige, Attorney General Clare Connors and Hawaii Department of Transportation Director Jade Butay and Deputy Director Derek Chow for their assistance in developing a coordinated disembarkation plan which keeps both guests and Hawaii residents safe and secure,” said Harry Sommer, president and chief executive officer of Norwegian Cruise Line.
The Norwegian Jewel was the last vessel with guests onboard at sea in the Norwegian Cruise Line fleet. Shortly afterward both ships will be berthed in ports around the world before the temporary suspension is lifted.
