Dawn Princess Delayed at Sydney

Dawn Princess arrived at Sydney Saturday (May 23, 2009) for its turnaround. It arrived at noon, delayed first by storms, and then passengers experienced another six hour delay while authorities screened for H1N1/Swine Flu. Several passengers aboard had tested positive for Influenza A, but they had recovered some ten days ago.

There were some 2,000 passengers waiting to disembark and the same number waiting to board for their cruise. The story was covered in the Melbourne Herald Sun.
