The cruise left the port of Sydney on March 7 and has so far visited Noumea New Caledonia and Mystery Island Vanuatu. However, Voyager of The Seas was denied entry to Luganville and Port Vila.

A spokesperson for Royal Caribbean said that as the ship had been on an international itinerary, passengers would be "required to self-isolate under measures announced by the Australian Government."
