Two cruise ships from Malaysia and Singapore, carrying about 2,400 mostly European passengers and crew, docked in Phuket deep-seaport this morning for a brief visit.

 

Provincial health officials boarded the vessels, the Seabourn Ovation and the Quantum of the Seas, to screen passengers with thermal scanners and thermometers for signs of fever prior to being allowed to disembark.

 

Deputy Transport Minister Athirath Rattanaseth said this morning that the Thai Harbour Department had received reports from the two cruise ships, about the health of their passengers and crew, 24 hours before they docked.

This might be a niave question, but how is this liner different to the liner that has been refused permission to dock.

Its a bit like Elite visa vs Tourist visa, i.e., Seabourn is regarded upper deck all around and you probably know how quick the red carpet are out here then.

The Westerdams passengers were mainly " Farang " from Germany, Canada, and Holland.

Yes but it also had 19 Thai passengers who had to go into quarantaine when they came from the ship.
