Out of the sky and onto the water, I am on a cruise ship that left the Seychelles 16 days ago, stopped in Columbo for bunkering and resupply where no one came on board or hopped off as Sri Lanka had closed it borders to cruise passengers.
We were heading to Asia previously but with current situation this was changed to direct to Broome where we were supposed to arrive thismorning and then around Aus.
Yesterday with the new govt policy of no cruise ships we changed course and headed for Fremantle, arriving in a few days.
Any suggestions on what will happen to A, Australian residents B Other nationals.
The ship is on a world cruise that departed MIA on Jan 3 and was not due back to SFO untill end of May.
Two days ago the company announced that the cruise would be ending in Fremantle and all pax disembarked and flown home at company expense,
What will happen now? your thoughts

If they announced 2 days ago that you would terminate in Fremantle they would have got permission to land after the closure of the ports.
We have American friends on the Silver Whisper which was on a world cruise but now terminating in SYD.Of course AA has cancelled their flight but now on QF to DFW on Friday.They may have to stay on board until Friday but Aussie pax will be allowed to disembark but must fly back home ASAP if not Sydney residents.

Just been updated on board, we Aussies and ALL OTHER pax will be allowed to disembark in Freemantle on 18th, Australians are being directed to self isolate for 2 days, being 14 less credit allowed for time travelled since last stop in Columbo, even though nobody came aboard or left the ship as it was a "tech stop" only to resupply and buker.
Non residents are allowed to travel to airport and leave Aus.
All sorted
