NHK on Friday night aired an interview with Jan Swartz, the president of Princess Cruises, the operator of the Diamond Princess, who is reportedly visiting Japan to deal with the quarantine situation. While acknowledging that it is very difficult for many passengers to have to stay in their cabins for such an extended period, she expressed appreciation for their “patience.” Swartz promised that the company would make additional efforts to alleviate passengers’ hardships and concerns by, for example, providing them with information on the virus in multiple languages. Swartz reportedly stressed that Princess Cruises supports the GOJ’s policy of keeping the passengers aboard the ship for two weeks to contain the outbreak.
