corona virus on ships likely to sends crew members home
There is more and more talk that Carnival will send home all of us.
I’m on Horizon right now and tomorrow there are about 200-300 people leaving: gift shop, spa, entertainment, where airports are open. There are plenty of people from the UK, South Africa and of course America leaving tomorrow.
Others say Carnival will try anything they can to slow down sending us home. If the airport is closed, they will try to find another airport nearby. Crew member will be compensated for his travel money. There was a Macedonian, the airport was closed in Macedonia but HR told him that if he wanted to fly to Tirana or Pristina, the airport was open there.
And after that, there will again be a large number of crew members who cannot get home at all. The company plans to leave those crew memebers on board but to put them on to a guest list. They will not work and the company will cover the cost of their food and medical expenses. The same applies to one who might go home but is not willing to go because of the situation in his country. He may stay on board but company won’t pay him any money.
I do not know how true this is, but everyone is speculating. When you look at it, all of this is realistic; corona virus is not going to stop. As I see it in America, it still hasn’t started intensively. In the next few weeks there will be even more chaos.
