Most of the passengers from the Zaandam and its sister ship the Rotterdam will begin disembarking today.
They will be taken by bus to a nearby airport and flown home on charter flights.
After being refused access to various ports and left stranded at sea, the Zaandam and its sister ship finally docked last night in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
Critically ill passengers were taken off first and transferred by ambulance to local hospitals.
Passengers with symptoms will remain on board the ship for treatment.
