(NOTE: When we posted this story at 2 pm Eastern, we strongly suspected but couldn't confirm that the measles ship was the Freewinds. Now, NBC is reporting that St. Lucia's Coast Guard has confirmed that the Freewinds is the ship that is quarantined.)

Newsweek and other publications are carrying news that the latest anti-vaxx nightmare is an entire cruise ship that has been quarantined in the Caribbean because one of its passengers has the measles.

St. Lucia's Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Merlene Fredericks-James, confirmed that a cruise ship has been locked down and none of its passengers or crew is allowed to leave the vessel. But she didn't identify the ship or the company operating it.
