1,035 passengers aboard Holland America Line's MS Koningsdam were turned away from Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, on Thursday. 21 crew members registered positive COVID-19 tests on board the ship. 'Mexican authorities won't let anyone off our cruise ship,' said passenger Paulette Laussane York.

All of the passengers were required to submit a negative coronavirus last Saturday, when one of the travelers returned a positive test for the virus. Beverly Carver-Percival was among the passengers on the MS Koningsdam who took to social media to express their displeasure of not being allowed off the ship. It's not clear how many passengers have been infected.
