Siem Cicero - what is up

The question is what is the autocarrier Siem Cicero doing off Halifax. Originally scheduled to arrive March 22, the ship has been drifting around offshore since that date. The ship sailed from Emden, Germany March 9.

Built by the Uljanik Shipyard in Pula, Croatia in 2017 it is a pure car and truck carrier of 56,677 gt, 17,416 dwt, with a capacity of 7,000 cars. Halifax was its first North American call on its maiden voyage in 2017 [see photo above] and the ship was last here in January.

If the ship is waiting out a two week self-isolation since leaving its last port that would have expired by now. So far no new ETA has been given. One has to wonder what is keeping it away from Halifax.
