The US Coast Guard says it's working with Holland America to plan for the docking of the cruise ships MS Zandaam and the MS Rotterdam.

The ships have reached Miami after two weeks at sea.

Two of the four deaths on board the Zaandam have been blamed on COVID-19 and the cruise company says nine others have tested positive for the novel coronavirus.

About 250 Canadians are aboard the two vessels.

Holland America says the Rotterdam took on nearly 1,400 people who appear to be healthy from its sister ship.
