A New Jersey man who was aboard the Rotterdam cruise ship with his wife told “Fox & Friends Weekend” on Sunday that the day they got off the ship “turned out to be the most difficult of all.”

Two Holland America ships operated by Holland America Line, the Rotterdam and the Zaandam, were granted permission to dock at Port Everglades in Florida this past Thursday, after awaiting clearance earlier in the week. Since March 22, the ships had reported at least 233 passengers and crew having exhibited “influenza-like” symptoms and several confirmed cases of COVID-19. Four older guests also died aboard the Zaandam last week.

The article goes on to state the following:

Passengers aboard the two ships continued to disembark throughout the day on Friday. A spokeswoman for Broward Health in Broward County, Fla., said Friday morning that some remained in critical condition, while others were described as being in fair condition.

Rick De Pinho told “Fox & Friends Weekend” that, “We went from people surrounding us with hazmat suits to mixing with the general population.”

He went on to describe transportation difficulties in getting home.

“We are very sorry for the frustrating air travel experience on top of everything this guest already endured and apologize for any confusion,” Holland America executives said in a statement. “We endeavored to fully communicate to each guest what their flight itinerary home would be. However, given the last-minute approval for docking in Fort Lauderdale, the disembarkation process was more challenging than normal.”
