Cruise Ship Crews Trapped at Sea Stage Hunger Strikes

You might not love being stuck at home, but it could DEFINITELY be worse. Imagine being trapped on a cruise ship for months on end, with no idea when you'll be allowed to go back home.

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 on ships all 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.
