Passengers and crew denied disembarkation because of coronavirus fear
The 'MSC Meraviglia' with over 4,500 passengers and over 1,600 crew members on board was denied disembarkation of either passengers or crew at Ocho Rios, Jamaica, after she docked in port on Feb 25, 2020. Port Health Officials discovered that a crew member was placed in isolation on board with a cough, fever and associated muscle pains, and with a travel history to a country related to coronavirus. After waiting in port for nearly four hours for formal clearance, the captain decided to leave Ocho Rios for the next port of call as the long wait had compromised the passengers’ proposed time at the destination. The ship proceeded to Cozumel, ETA Feb 27, 3 p.m.

On July 5, 2019, at 12.45 p.m. a female German passenger in the 40s jumped over board the "MSC Meraviglia" which was enroute from Flåm to Kiel during a one week cruise. The captain immediately turned the ship around after the alarm was raised near Kristiansand. The SAR operation was joined by a helicopter of the Norwegian Coastguard, a nearby container ship and the Merlin 510 helicopter of the Royal Danish Airforce.
