The vessel carrying 3,500 people from 54 countries, has docked in Oakland.
The US has reported more than 607 coronavirus cases and 24 deaths. President Donald Trump said it had "blindsided" the world.
Cases of the virus have been recorded in 34 states plus Washington DC.
Some US politicians - including Mr. Trump's newly appointed chief of staff Mark Meadows - are self-isolating after coming into contact with an individual who has tested positive.
The number of infections worldwide is more than 109,000, with about 3,800 deaths.
