Pullmantur could not be reached to provide information on the ship's next sailing, which was scheduled to depart today. Jonathan Boekhoudt, public relations officer for Aruba Cruise Tourism, tells us that Pullmantur has said passengers scheduled to sail on Ocean Dream's next cruise will be put up at a nearby resort until further notice.
No passengers have or are suspected to have swine flu, officially known as the H1N1 virus, and those whose cruise ended earlier today in Aruba have been cleared to disembark. The three crewmembers with confirmed cases remain in quarantine.
