The transatlantic cruise ship MS Braemar docked at the Cuban port of Mariel, west of Havana, this morning.

Later today, Cuban health officials are expected to examine passengers, who will then be transported to charter flights to return to the United Kingdom.

The British company Fred Olsen Cruise Lines, which operates the Braemar, confirmed on Twitter that the cruise ship docked in Mariel. Four planes have also landed in Cuba.

By the numbers: The Braemar is carrying more than 600 passengers with at least five confirmed coronavirus cases on board. It had spent days searchingfor somewhere to dock after it was refused entry at multiple Caribbean ports.
