Coronavirus: Holland America cruise ship with no illness turned away
新型冠状病毒:无确诊病例的荷美邮轮无法靠岸

A Pacific cruise that a Michigan family had planned as a celebration of improved health and graduation from college is turning out to be more stressful than expected as the ship looks for a port that will take it amid global coronavirus concerns.

密歇根州的一个家庭原本计划乘坐邮轮进行一次太平洋旅行来庆祝健康状况的改善和大学毕业,但结果发现,在全球对新型冠状病毒担忧的情况下,这艘邮轮寻找港口停靠比预期的更有压力。

"We are floating around the ocean," said Steve Muth, from Onsted, Michigan, who boarded Holland America’s MS Westerdam with his wife, Jane, and daughter Kate, and Kate's boyfriend, Erik Deneau, Feb. 1. "We've been denied, essentially, every port, every country since leaving Hong Kong."

2月1日,来自密歇根州昂斯特德的史蒂夫?穆特与妻子简、女儿凯特以及凯特的男友埃里克?德诺登上荷美邮轮“威士特丹号”,他表示:“我们正在海洋中漂流。自从离开香港以来,我们基本上被拒绝进入每一个港口、每一个国家。”

There are no known cases of coronavirus on board, the cruise line said, and the Westerdam is not in quarantine.

荷美邮轮指出,该邮轮上没有新型冠状病毒确诊病例,而且“威士特丹号”也没有被隔离。

They had one stop in Kaohsiung, Taiwan, but otherwise, Steve Muth said, they've been floating at sea.

他们在台湾高雄停留了一站,但史蒂夫·穆特表示,除此之外,他们一直在海上漂流。

"I think we're headed toward Vietnam, maybe Malaysia, Cambodia, not sure — they won't tell us just yet," he told the Detroit Free Press, which is part of the USA TODAY Network, in a phone interview Sunday from the ship. "We have no known cases onboard, but there's just a lot of fear that someone may have it and bring it to their country."

他周日在邮轮上接受《今日美国》旗下的《底特律自由新闻报》的电话采访时说道:“我认为我们正在前往越南,也许马来西亚,柬埔寨,我不确定——他们现在还不会告诉我们,我们这艘邮轮上没有确诊病例,但人们非常担心邮轮上有人可能携带这种病毒,然后把它带到自己的国家。”

Holland America told USA TODAY Saturday that there are plans in the works for disembarkation soon.

荷兰驻美国大使馆上周六告诉《今日美国》,他们正在计划迅速寻找停靠点。

"We can confirm that we have received preliminary approval for a port of disembarkation next week," the cruise line confirmed in a statement provided by Erik Elvejord, its director of public relations, though it did not name the location.

该邮轮公司的公关总监埃里克·埃尔韦约德在一份声明中证实,“我们可以确认,我们已获得初步批准,将于下周下船”。不过,该公司没有透露停靠地点。

"However, before we receive final confirmation, we are required to do a complete passport review of all guests and crew in order to ensure that no one has traveled in mainland China in the past 14 days," the statement continued. "We know that our guests are anxious for a port confirmation, as are we."

“然而,在我们收到最终确认之前,我们需要对所有的客人和船员进行全面的护照检查,以确保在过去14天内没有人前往中国大陆旅行”,他在声明里继续说道:“我们知道,我们的客人和我们一样,都渴望得到港口确认。”

Earlier in the cruise, the ship was forced to skip a port call in Manila after the Philippines wouldn't allow any foreigners aboard the Westerdam to disembark there. It was subsequently was denied entry to ports in Japan and Guam.

早些时候,这艘邮轮被迫放弃了在马尼拉的一个港口停靠,因为菲律宾不允许“威士特丹号”上的任何外国人在那里下船。它后来又被拒绝进入日本和关岛的港口。

Unlike the Diamond Princess, a Princess Cruises' cruise ship which is off the coast of Japan after dozens of passengers tested positive for coronavirus, the Westerdam is not under quarantine, according to Muth and Holland America.

根据穆特和荷美邮轮的说法,与数十名乘客被检测出新型冠状病毒呈阳性反应后停留在日本近海进行隔离检疫的“钻石公主号”邮轮不同,“威士特丹号”没有被隔离。

The Diamond Princess — which has a crew of 1,045 and 2,666 guests — quarantined passengers in their cabins until Feb 19, after a traveler who got off the ship on Jan. 25 tested positive for coronavirus.

“钻石公主号”上共有1045名船员和2666名乘客。1月25日,一名乘客在下船时被检测出新型冠状病毒呈阳性反应,此后,“钻石公主号”对客舱的乘客进行了隔离检疫,直到2月19日。

Holland America, however, said that its passengers and crew are safe and free to move about the ship.

然而,荷美邮轮表示,它们这艘邮轮上的乘客和船员是安全的,可以在船上自由活动。

"We have no reason to believe there are any cases of coronavirus on board despite media reports," the cruise line said. "The ship has sufficient fuel and food provisions to last until the end of the voyage. We are providing free internet and phone access for guests and crew to stay in contact with their loved ones."

该邮轮公司表示:“尽管有媒体报道我们邮轮上有疑似病例,但我们没理由相信我们邮轮上确实有感染者。这艘邮轮有足够的燃料和食物,可以维持到航程结束。我们为客人和船员提供免费的互联网和电话接入,以便他们与亲人保持联系。”

In addition, the cruise line said, the 1,455 guests have been provided a full refund and a future cruise credit. There are also 802 crew members onboard.

此外,该邮轮公司表示,1,455名游客已获得全额退款和未来的邮轮积分。该邮轮上还有802名船员。

Holland America has canceled the next cruise scheduled to embark in Yokohama, Japan, Feb. 15.

荷美邮轮已经取消了原定于2月15日在日本横滨的下一趟邮轮之旅。

Muth said that initially, the cruise was supposed to end in Shanghai, but that was changed to Tokyo. However Thursday, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said passengers would not be allowed to disembark and the cruise line has been seeking an alternate plan.

穆特表示,按照最初的行程,这趟邮轮本应在上海结束旅程,但后来改为了东京。然而,日本首相安倍晋三周四表示,不允许该邮轮乘客下船,因此荷美邮轮一直在寻求其他停靠点。

Muth, 57, who lives about an hour's drive from Detroit, said that his family took an 18-hour flight to Hong Kong to get on the ship, and the cruise line screened passengers for risks for the coronavirus before they boarded.

现年57岁的穆斯住在离底特律约一小时车程的地方。他说,他的家人坐了18个小时的飞机到香港上船,邮轮公司在乘客上船前对他们进行了新型冠状病毒风险筛查。

"Everybody seemed good," he said. "It would seem like all the precautions were taken."

“每个人看起来身体状况都不错”,他说:“似乎所有的预防措施都已经采取了。”

A human resources consultant, Muth said their family decided to take the cruise after health concerns. He said he broke his leg, he had had a cancer scare, he just had an operation on his neck. The trip, he said, was a celebration of survival.

穆特是一名人力资源顾问,他表示,考虑到健康问题,他们全家决定乘坐邮轮。他说他摔断了腿,患了癌症,并且不久前在脖子上做了手术。他说,这趟旅行本是来庆祝他疾病灾难后的幸存的。

On top of that, he added, his daughter recently graduated from Eastern Michigan University.

他补充说,除此之外,他女儿最近刚从东密歇根大学毕业。

"We have good meals, good entertainment, the company has been outstanding," Muth said, adding he has no bad things to say about the cruise line. "It's just a bit unnerving not knowing whether we'll have to go through quarantine when we get back. We don't know."

穆斯对该邮轮的评价很高,他表示:“我们吃得很好,也有很丰富的娱乐活动,该邮轮为我们提供了很好的服务”,他还补充道:“当我们抵岸后,我们不知道是否会被隔离,这让人有点不安。”
