More than two months after the cruise ship industry was brought to a halt over the coronavirus pandemic, 100,000 crew members are still stranded on board across the world. It’s an increasingly desperate situation for many of the workers worried they won’t be able to make it home for a long time. On one Royal Caribbean ship, 15 workers staged a hunger strike. At least two crew members on other cruise ships have tragically leaped overboard in apparent suicides.
