After months of trying to return home, twenty-nine Trinidad and Tobago nationals aboard the Carnival Fantasy Cruise ship should touch local soil soon.

The vessel with the cruise workers arrived in the waters just outside of Port-of-Spain on Thursday morning.

Smaller vessels will transport the workers from the cruise line to the cruise ship complex, transported via bus to the state’s quarantine facility at the National Racquet Centre, Tacarigua.

The workers will be tested and quarantined for a minimum period of 14 days before they can be reunited with their families.
