Royal Caribbean reverses ban on Chinese cruisers, Norwegian adds green card exception After banning Chinese passport holders from its cruise ships Friday, Miami-based cruise companies Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. and Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd. have rethought their policies.

Royal Caribbean completely reversed its ban on Chinese cruisers Monday. Norwegian Cruise Line added an exception for U.S. green card holders sailing from the U.S.

The policies were put in place to curb the spread of the coronavirus, which has infected more than 43,000 as of Tuesday and killed more than 1,000, mostly in mainland China.

Competitor Carnival Corporation has not banned citizens of any country. The company will instead deny boarding to people who have visited China, Hong Kong or Macau in the last 14 days.
