   June 1, 2020 ,   Cruise Industry

An Azamara Cruises ship that made headlines during the early days of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic docked at King George V docks in Greenock (Glasgow, Scotland).

The 748-passenger Azamara Pursuit, with a small number of crew members onboard, was moving along the Clyde Monday morning, June 1, after arriving from Miami Florida.

In March, she spent weeks trying to find somewhere to anchor after being rejected by Chile, which was afraid passengers had COVID-19. After departing from Argentina in early March, Azamara Pursuit eventually reached Miami FL at the end of the month.

No passengers onboard ever tested positive for Coronavirus, the cruise company said.

Another two cruise ships are expected to arrive at the dock.
