Mauritius has denied a Norwegian cruise ship permission to dock at the capital Port Louis over fears of a potential cholera outbreak on board.
At least 15 people on the Norwegian Dawn have been in isolation over suspected illness.
Mauritian authorities said the decision to block the ship was “taken in order to avoid any health risks”.
Samples were taken for testing on Sunday, with results expected to be known on Tuesday.
The passengers developed mild symptoms of a stomach illness during a trip to South Africa, a representative of Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings said.
Mary Francovilla Dees, 69, a passenger on the Norwegian Dawn told the BBC that despite the delay the atmosphere on the ship has been “fairly calm”.
