Quarantine Ends for Diamond Princess Cruise Ship in Japan

The 14-day quarantine for the Coronavirus hit Diamond Princess cruise ship in Japan has now come to an end.

The Carnival Dream is returning to her homeport and canceled a call to Cozumel due to a medical emergency on board.

Carnival Dream Cruise Altered

The Carnival cruise ship has needed to urgently return to her homeport of the Port of Galveston in Texas today due to a medical emergency on the current 5-day western Caribbean voyage which departed on January 6.

A passenger onboard the current voyage told Cruise Hive “We left yesterday on time. About 2 am they had a medical response team call to a Cabin. And then today at about 10 am it was announced we are heading back to Galveston today for medical embarkation. The captain said it was too windy for a helicopter.”

As the ship will return to U.S. waters there is also a possibility that the Casino and Shops will close. At the moment the ship is scheduled to arrive in Galveston at around 7:00 PM today local time and currently heading back at 22 knots.

The ship would usually be sailing towards the first port of call of Cozumel, Mexico but is now instead sailing the opposite direction which is essential so that the guest can have urgent medical care on land. A special debarkation will take place for the guest. We do hope the person makes a full recovery.

Carnival Dream Letter

This does now mean that the scheduled call to Cozumel on January 8 has been canceled and instead the Carnival Dream will have a full day at sea. Progreso on January 9 will still go ahead as normal and the ship will return to Galveston on January 11 ready for the next 5-day western Caribbean cruise.
