  • The prime minister of Cambodia, Hun Sen, greeted passengers of the MS Westerdam cruise ship as they disembarked in Sihanoukville on Friday, Feb. 14 after two weeks at sea.

    It anchored offshore early on Thursday, Feb. 13 to allow officials to collect samples from passengers with any signs of ill health or flu-like symptoms. After the tests, it was determined no one on board was carrying the virus.

    Passengers were granted permission to disembark on Friday, with the prime minister greeting many with handshakes and bouquets of flowers as they stepped off the ship and boarded an awaiting bus.
