MD Governor Orders the Port of Baltimore Closed

Sad to hear that it's coming to this. Luckily they are allowing current returning passengers to disembark after screening.

But if he's going to close the port to passenger ships shouldn't he should also ban all international arrival of aircraft and keep passengers on the tarmac for international layovers/plane changes for the airports in Maryland ? To me without those restrictions it sounds bias against cruise ships travel.

Sounds like a bias to me as well!

Still it is sign of things to come. Hopefully we are given more sound advice than simply wash your hands. We will need a lot of guidance from our health experts.

Grandeur of the Seas ports in Baltimore and I see this am that it was denied port at 2 Caribbean islands on it's current cruise because of suspected corona cases. At least they have agreed to let them disembark.
