There was a moment of what seemed like sweet relief when passengers were able to disembark from Holland America’s MS Westerdam after being turned away from multiple ports. But things took a turn when a passenger from the ship was diagnosed with coronavirus on her journey home.

As a result, hundreds of passengers and crew members, now docked in Cambodia, are finding themselves in limbo once again. 

Elly Echybowski, who was traveling aboard the Westerdam with her husband, Timothy, shared positive, if anxious updates from the Sokha Hotel in Phnom Penh, the capitol of Cambodia. 

As of Tuesday morning in Cambodia, guests were updated twice a day by Holland America staff, at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., Echybowski wrote in an email to USA TODAY. She said US Embassy staff were also in the hotel lobby posting updates and assisting with procuring medicine. 

“Today they had posted that several more countries will not let us fly through,” Echybowski said. When passengers gain flight arrangements, she said, they will be provided with a letter bearing their test results.
