The Regal Princess was cleared by the CDC and docked last night at Port Everglades after two crew members tested negative.
Officials say the cruise ship was initially scheduled to dock Sunday morning but was delayed due to two crew members that may have been exposed to COVID-19.
The crew members, who have since tested negative, were previously onboard the Grand Princess, which has around 20 infected crew members.
That ship will dock in Oakland, California today.
