FARMINGTON – A Farmington family is uncertain when they will see their son and new daughter-in-law again after the Grand Princess cruise ship was quarantined off the coast of California. Twenty-one passengers and crew members on board the ship have tested positive for the coronavirus.
Sean Boyles is a Farmington High School graduate who now lives in Albuquerque, where he works as a flight paramedic. He and his wife, Heather Boyles, left for their honeymoon on the Grand Princess in February. Grand Princess Capt. John Smith on Sunday told passengers the ship is headed to the port of Oakland, California, though they were destined to stay aboard the ship for at least another day.
Princess Cruises says it’s expected to arrive Monday. The ship is carrying more than 3,500 people from 54 countries.
