Third cruise ship returns Mexican workers at Cozumel

Cozumel, Q.R. — Another 45 Mexican nationals were returned to their homes Sunday after arriving via a Norwegian Cruise Line ship at Cozumel.

The ship MSC Marina arrived with 45 Mexican crew members, including 11 from Quintana Roo and four from Cozumel. Cozumel mayor Pedro Joaquín Delbouis announced the arrival of the vessel, returning countrymen to Mexico after they remained stranded on board due to the virus.

The arrival of the MSC Marina was the third humanitarian dock implemented by the government to support Mexican crew members in their return home.

During the arrival of the cruise ship MSC Marina, the National Defense Secretariat (SEDENA) was present with elements from the Cozumel military and navy along with officers from the National Institute of Migration and International Health.

After the 45 crew members disembarked, a total of 41 were transferred to the mainland massif aboard a vessel belonging to Winjet for further transport to their homes.
