    According to the vessel owner, Holland America, all guests will be screened and cleared for entry by US Customs and Border Protection upon arrival.

    Passengers of the Zaandam cruise ship are ready to disembark at the Port Everglades Cruiseport in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

    The vessel finally docked at the port on 2 April, after being stranded at sea for over two weeks as several Latin American countries denied it entry because of a coronavirus outbreak on board.

    Four passengers have died and more than 200 guests and crew members on the ship have flu-like symptoms; eight of them have tested positive for COVID-19. 

    The vessel owner, Holland America, said all guests will be screened and cleared for entry by US Customs and Border Protection upon arrival.
