    The Costa Fortuna cruise ship docked in Singapore has had its next two trips cancelled following “restrictive measures” by ports in the ship’s itineraries.

    Cruise operator Costa Crociere had said on Tuesday that the ship was set to depart that same day for a weeklong cruise from Singapore to Thailand and Malaysia; and on March 17 for a 21-day, one-way trip from Singapore to Savona in Italy.

    “The decision was deemed necessary [on] the basis of the restrictive measures currently applied by ports included in the ship’s itineraries,” the operator said.

    “The situation would not have responded to guests’ expectations and to the standards of Costa Crociere.”

    The Costa Fortuna docked in Singapore’s Marina Bay Cruise Centre on Tuesday after it was turned away at ports in Malaysia and Thailand amid fears of a coronavirus outbreak despite having no suspected cases among its passengers and crew.
