MSC Ship not being allowed to dock in Ocho Rios due to sick crew member?

Recommended Posts

from MSC boards.....

 

We just got notice that we were denied because one of the staff has regular influenza A. They're in quarantine but the officials at Jamaica won't clear us for this reason. The captain has decided that we will leave now. I hope this doesn't prevent us from getting clearance at our next three stops 😕

is this true??? is the ship or the port??

 

n answer to the customs clearance question , RCI’s Radiance of the seas is currently doing an Australasia circumnavigation and was denied docking in Bali due to the Coronavirus. Bali was their  foreign port for tax and customs purposes so officials were allowed onboard while they were anchored off shore to clear the ship so they could still have their duty free etc onboard . How many and how long does it take for customs officers to clear a ship? I am sure MSC would facilitate that.

I agree but at the same time it does suck to miss a port...and what if other ports do it? that is a concern as well. for me at least.

I think it’s going to get much worse then better.....rock bottom is still coming. 

 

It's going to get MUCH MUCH WORSE and no one knows what the rock bottom will be still. I'm guessing lots of empty ships.

Not the complete story.

 

From a link on another forum, the crew member does have the flu, but the problem is that the crew member just came on board from one of the restricted countries that requires a 14 day quarantine and it has been less than 14 days.

yes I am sorry I didn't include that. it just shows that we don't know if that could happen on our upcoming cruises either.

I found it interesting and especially so since it could happen to any ship including an RCI ship. I never would have seen this if someone was not thoughtful enough to post it to the RCI board.

In 25 years of cruising the Caribbean Ocho Rios is the only port where we did not feel safe.  Machine gun carrying paramilitary troops lining the streets does not convey a welcoming atmosphere.

I believe it was RC's decision about Bali, not that they were turned away by Indonesia.

 

I'm actually happy about that, as we sail on Radiance 27 March. Between now and then, she is only visiting ports in Australia and New Zealand, so hopefully won't have any quarantine issues.

Sounds like Time Square in New York City. I feel very safe there.
