Bali-bound cruise ship Queen Elizabeth diverted to Fremantle due to coronavirus outbreak

A cruise ship initially scheduled to dock in Bali has been diverted and is set to arrive in Fremantle in the coming days as it grapples with a COVID-19 outbreak.

According to an online ship-tracking service, the Queen Elizabeth left Sydney on November 15 before berthing in Darwin on Friday.

It was set to arrive in Bali on Monday, and then head to Perth as part of a 17-day voyage.

However, the COVID cases derailed plans to dock in Indonesia.

“Unfortunately, due to the ongoing rise in community transmission across Australia and this being reflected on various cruise lines, we’re unable to visit Indonesia at this time,” a spokesperson for ship owner Cunard said.
