Despite sharing a border with Mexico, Belize remains Swine Flu free, and they'd really prefer to keep it that way. 

Royal Caribbean Cruise Line's "Enchantment of the Sea" left port in Miami on June 8th, but by the time the ship reached Belize yesterday an H1N1 scare had broken out causing Belize's Health Ministry to temporarily quarantine passengers on the ship, including actor John Travolta. 

Six of the ship's crew began showing flu-like symptoms, so passengers were kept on the ship for four hours. Finally passengers were allowed on to land around Noon. 

As for Travolta, he was previously scheduled to leave the Cruise at the stop and fly home on his private jet. Plans that weren't affected by the flu scare.
