Officials say three cruise ships that have not carried passengers or crew members with the coronavirus will dock at the Port of Oakland for several months.

The Port of Oakland said Friday the Oakland-bound Norwegian Cruise Line vessels will arrive in the San Francisco Bay Area this weekend. Two will tie up Saturday at the Outer Harbor Terminal, which is not in use for shipping.  

The third will dock Sunday at Howard Terminal on the Oakland Estuary, officials said. Officials say the ships could remain at the port for two to three months
