Royal Caribbean has canceled eight cruises out of China through early March and is taking more precautionary steps because of the novel coronavirus that began in China.

The Miami-based company said Tuesday that it is now turning away from its boats anyone who has traveled from, to or through mainland China or Hong Kong in the past 15 days.

The number of cancellations at the cruise line is up from just three last week, as is the duration of those cancellations, which had been through early February.
