 how would you get them home? 

You have to want to get them home, like calling Royal Caribbean to get an issue taken care of; you have to be persistent. Like a James Van Fleet weather forecast, you have to be honest and frank. Like James Van Fleet, daily briefings and frequent updates will go a long way. Van Fleet uses a bunch of social media to get his word out. In short, honest communication will go a long way with the stranded crew if Royal is in fact trying. Today, Royal Caribbean is not trying.

CDC mandates??? How about turning your negatives around into positives??? How about leadership and guidance??? This whole maritime platform is based on leadership, seniority, and wisdom; well.....I'm expecting brilliance out of highly paid people with stripes on their shoulders and corner offices in Miami and so far I'm not getting any.

If I was the zookeeper I would clean the floating petri dish to the point it was a germ free environment. I would test everyone aboard twice a day. I would implement platforms and activities so that those onboard do things. I would start with the easy stuff, how can we do the dances that are done during the sail away? How can these people go to the main theater and watch a movie or a performance? How can we let them on the pool deck and occupy a lounge chair for an hour? How can we feed them all together? It means changing behaviors, it means changing norms. 

Instead of saying we'll just let our boat and the staff linger on some ocean; I would create a space and protocols that make a cruise ship better and safer than being on land. Someone disembarking from one of my cruise ships would be welcome in any country, in any airplane, or at any hotel. The relative few staff that are onboard would be my guinea pig, a nice small sample size to work with to establish how life and activities on future sailings might be preformed for when we pack the boat with 5,000 passengers.

Imagine....people wanting to get on a cruise ship because it is a better, safer place than where they are at??? Whoa...

Doing so requires leadership. It means changing things and implementing practices that other companies and institutions will look at see are a successful path going forward. It means being a pinnacle.

I've noticed that all your posts have been doom and gloom articles against RCL, Do you not like RCL?  Or are you a plant for another cruise line trying to sway us that direction, if so, you're no

I disagree that RC isn't trying or isn't communicating it. The issue is the main stream media rarely, if ever, reports on it. They are quick to post a "disgruntled" cook's FB post as evidence of

Another negative, one sided, useless post from R Yeo. By my calculation this now account for 100% of their posts.

Firstly havent a clue who james van fleet is

 

Secondly you went way off subject, no one was talking about cleaning or social Distancing etc it was about getting crew home, and my question was how would YOU get them home? The answer to This one simple question we still await 

 

Hopefully you can figure out how to get filipino and Indian crew home to their respective countries both of  which have closed their doors to all flights domestic and international because ALL cruiselines not just RC are struggling to work out a way to do it until lockdown measures are lifted in these countries.

 

My friend who works for Aida may be lucky in that they are still being paid despite contract being up 7 weeks ago, they have a nice cabin, plenty food and activities to keep them amused but the one thing they dont have is a date to go home, Aida cannot tell them that! That answer lies with the Philippine government and when they decide it save to lift restrictions even for OFW

I think you pretty much hit it on the head, and I'll add that many if not most of the authorities around the globe have become drunk on the power of control.  If anyone thinks any of this has anything to do with health, safety, cleanliness, social distancing anymore, I've got some oceanfront property in Indiana to sell you.

The issue is the main stream media rarely, if ever, reports on it. They are quick to post a "disgruntled" cook's FB post as evidence of a vast conspriracy against the crew, but when the CEO of the cruise line says they repatriated 10k and working on the 20k remaining, zero mention by the media.

The result is the public (you/I) don't see the concerted effort going on. Nevermind the massive hurdles they face by insanely difficult government restrictions to get people home that has created a legal quagmire.

Unfortunately we live in a word of headlines, with few bothering to read the article.

I would test everyone aboard twice a day. I would implement platforms and activities so that those onboard do things.

How can you do that?  Look at some of these repatriation schedules.  I believe it is Anthem that is going to India.  It is what @2 week sailing to get to Goa after leaving their last port.  Assume 500 crew members.  That means they would need 14,000 tests on board prior to the sailing.  Assume the test takes 5 mins.  How do you process 1000 tests a day?  That is 5,000 minutes.  They would need more than 4 medical personnel operating 24/7 to get through this on a daily basis. 

Theoretically, your example is a no go from every way you turn.

How do you know they are not doing exactly that?  Do you actually think RCL or any cruise line doesn't have a team of people working on this already?  Just because they are not announcing it, or the news is not covering it, doesn't mean they are not diligently investigating how to do it.  Let's be honest, they read the news too and they have personnel that do market research.  You would be a fool to think that there is not an RCL employee or intern lurking on here, cruise critic or FB reading posters opinions.  

  •  My daughter was an intern for a famous non-profit.  One of her jobs as an intern was exactly that.  Social media.  She was not allowed to respond to any post.  She gathered info, opinions and made a daily report to her supervisor and what was being talked about on the multiple sites.
  •  I work retail.  Management also gets a weekly report on what people are saying, be it their website, Yelp, FB, etc.

Yes, our world is now a global economy, but the last time I checked  there is no global government.  The only closest thing you would come to that, would be the UN.  Nor can you force a company (airline, hotel, car rental, etc) to do that, public or privately owned, unless of course it is mandated by law.  Tieing it back to unless you have the world all agreeing and setting standards than it is not feasible.   

Add on top of that a company like NCL that made headlines a few weeks  about their ability to survive past Sept without a huge cash infusion.  The type of things you are talking about cost money and lots of it.  Where will they find the funds if they follow all of your suggestions?  How much do you think thousands of medical tests done  twice a day on a daily basis for repatriation would cost the cruise lines?  If they use their funds for your 1st suggestion,  than how can they create a space, assuming you mean more social distancing/less density on a ship?  That would mean pulling their ships and doing a complete re-design with fewer bookings.  IE, will they now no longer offer an interior room with Pullman beds, equating to every cabin can only hold 2 people?  If that is the case can you not see cruise companies suing the govt if they don't say to resorts like Disney or Sandals or Atlantis that they do the exact same?  A hotel room with 2 double beds is how much bigger than a cabin?  It is a slippery slope you are going down.  

JMPO, and with $2.07 you can get a small coffee from Starbucks (wearing your mask of course!)

So let me get this correct

 

They are proresting about being locked on a ship with 100s of fellow crew for company, with food and drink available at no cost, still getting paid their wage, lots of things to do such as games, pool, ice skating etc YET they want home to their countries where they will be in lockdown in their home only talking with those in their household, food and drink will be whats available at local shop they have to que to get into and they wont have wages.....makes a lot of sense

To me this photo is a small group organising a protest and as everyone knows when something is happening others come out to watch, those watching are probably the laundry staff wondering how the hell they are going to get the pen marks off the bed sheets for new guests arriving 

 

BTW anyone notice its only the Miami newspaper that poster links? Probably works for them and is trying to further their career by looking for negative posts on here 

Ray, they were in lockdown in their rooms for 21 days to ensure that every single crew member went fever free for 14 days.  
 

They haven’t had pay since April 1st.  They are basically being held as prisoners.  They are being fed, but have to pay for alcohol if they choose to drink.  As far as pools etc, they have been only allowed in them a few hours a day and are required to social distance.  

 

How do I know all of this??? 
 

A very dear friend and his wife are crew members on board one of the ships and we talk almost every other day on FB messenger.  
 

It is a nightmare for them and there is no end in sight.  They want to get home so they can work whatever job they can to feed their families.  Have a little compassion.

That want home i get that totally but its not going to happen until their governments allow it, its not RC or any other cruiselines fault airports and cruiseports are closed. 

Lockdown until everyone was clear same rules as onboard to onshore, if any of my family or yours got symptoms we would have to self isolate for 14 days also so thats not an issue

As for getting home and finding work, how does that happen when most places are closed? Shops, restaurants,  offices etc etc

Self isolating in your home is completely different than self isolating in a 10’ x 15’ room with no windows.  
 

As far as getting home?  Carnival has already figured out a way to get all their crews home minus the bare minimum to keep the ships running at sea.  That was over a month ago too.
 

The country’s are closed to foreigners, but if you are a citizen of that country you are allowed in as long as you self-quarantine for 14 days upon arrival.  
 

As far as work, I get it.  Most of their home country’s don’t have much work, but at least they have the opportunity to do something to feed their families and pay their rent.  Being stuck on a prison ship with zero pay is far worse than making $3 a day doing whatever job they can find.  
 

We all know the pay is significantly better on a cruise ship than most jobs they can get at home, but with zero pay and the “go home” plans being pushed further and further back daily, don’t you think you would at least like the freedom to work any job for any pay??? 
 

They are stuck at Sea because RCCL won’t pony up the money to get them home.  We are living in a fantasy world if any of us think that cruising will resume before Aug 1st.  They want to keep them on board so they can start bringing in money again as soon as the CDC allows.  That being said how pleasant do you think your on board experience is going to be with crew that have been held prisoner for 4.5 months with zero pay?

I agree Carnival found a way they shipped crew from one ship to another then sailed that ship to a number of destinations, they chartered aircraft and flew them home....JUST as RC did at the start as the crew member who posts on here informed us when he headed home..and as they had planned again with sailings to the UK..are carnival doing this now with those who have went out of contract since then? Since countries went into lockdown? 

 

No they are not! They are in the same boat as every other cruiseline, and as i mentioned on another post  OFW ( oversees filipino workers ) are NOT being allowed in, Aida which is part of Carnival charterered 2 aircraft to fly to Manila, they arrived safely, my friend was due to be on next flight home however the government shut the door even to nationals and they are still in hamburg waiting to find out when they will get home. 

A Norwegian government official stated yesterday it was impossible to repatriate crew whilst their countries had no flying and lockdown! 

Maybe other governments should stand up and state the facts instead of allowing garbage press to print complete rubbish which anyone with half a brain would know is impossible due to the restrictions not because a company isnt seen to be trying.

 

With regards wages, yeah they should be paid but that isnt going to get them home any sooner unless they club their wages together and bribe their governments to open its borders 

 

 

Finally

These posts by the OG poster are for 1 aim only! To cause more disruption and issues! 

Click the link for Jim Walker who writes these newspaper artices, he just happens to be a maritime laywer dealing in crew disputes etc

These posts are aimed at any RC crew who read this site, to cause unrest etc and to get him work $$$

Its not RC causing the issue its this rag and its writer and they are the ones who should have blood on their hands.

Btw always thought jim walker was another name for a treadmill 😂😂😂😂

It is an unfortunate dilemma when there is no one government that can clear the red tape and allow crew to return home.  How do you force a country to open its borders for it's own nationals?  Even the UN doesn't have that power.  

As far as keeping crew on contract, that is violation of maritime regulations that are in place to keep seafarers from being forced to work indefinitely.  These regulations are in place to cover all seafarers on anything from the smallest fishing vessels to cargo, container, tanker and yes even cruise ships.  Shipping interests have no choice but to allow contracts to end else there are ambulance chasing lawyers waiting to litigate for violating maritime regulations.  This does impact all ships including crews on tanker, cargo, fishing and container vessels - they can't get home either.  There are thousands as many other ships compared to a few hundred cruise ships sailing around the world.

With no way to get crew off ships they have little choice but turn them into guests when contracts end.    Are maritime regulations being suspended?  No.   Damned if they and damned if they don't.  How do you force airlines to fly to destinations where they can't land?  How do you force a country like Spain to allow a ship into port?

They are receiving the “Statutory Minimum Pay” from the end of their contract date until the date they are released; in accordance with international maritime law.

Everything I can find on repatriation pits the amount of crew sent home to be relatively equal amongst the different lines. Carnival isn’t doing a significant deal better than RCI. 

The statement on countries being closed only to foreigners just isn’t true, plenty of reports of countries turning away their countrymen. 
 

the accusation that they are being kept onboard to allow for a rapid restart of hosting customers is just nonsense. If the crew members contract had concluded they couldn’t be used for customer facing activities even if RCI wanted them to.

Everyone calm down a little bit... I am just conveying what my friend on board has told me.  His home country’s border is open and yet RCCL won’t get him or anyone else that is allowed in to their respective country home.  
 

As far as pay, I apologize, I was wrong.  They are still receiving $13/day.
 

I know everyone on this forum wants to get back on the ships just as bad as I do, all I was trying to say is it’s not like the crew is having the same experience that we do when we go cruising.  I feel bad for them and hope they can get home to their loved ones as soon as possible.  
 

Crack a cold one and enjoy your day!

You have to want to get them home,

The situation is untenable on all sides, and IMO, the cruise lines are doing what they can do with ever changing rules and multiple sources for them. Assuming they don't want to get crew home when all of the traditional tools have been taken away isn't fair in my view.

There is one very informative YouTube channel that popped up recently on my feed that gives a really good picture of what is going on. It  is run by an officer on the Coral Princess. This was the first video that caught my eye among the several that are really enjoyable and informative. If you recall, his ship was denied entry at their debarkation port of Buenos Aires and had to make its way to Miami for refueling and re-provisioning. There is one other video on his channel where they are transferring crew between the Regal Princess as part of repatriation. 

I think the solution the cruise lines are following is the only effective way to get crew home given that governments are almost zero help with some exceptions that are few and far between.

Let's make sure we are talking about Facts here: This was post on May 18. 2020

According to numbers reported by The Miami Herald, the proportion of crews actually repatriated varies by cruise line, ranging from an estimated 23% of Royal Caribbean and 37% of Carnival crew members to 76% of MSC shipboard personnel.

Lets just say, barring the issue of closed borders at some of the workers homes, they did charter planes, trains and automobiles. To do that is going to eat into ten or hundreds of millions, effectively eliminating all extra updates some ships need/people want, to only provide the bare minimum service work. All of these cost would be added to the consumer...bye, bye cheap 7N cruise on Oasis. Bye, bye all the perks many loyalty members get but also complain that they should get more of ...I could go on. Another point is perspective....this is a blog devoted to RCCI and lovers of RCCI so it is 100% bias. Anyone who thinks it will be more negative or err on a neutral path, must be a newbie or troll....that is why places like CC exist.

@LeonCA Bad news doesn't help move a company forward. Business is not show business. Negative press in today's age of click bait creates problems....floating petri-dish anyone? Transparency helps a business to move forward. I personally don't want to come here to read negative, unsubstantiated rumors touted as facts.

https://crew-center.com/crew-open-letter-united-nations-regarding-border-closures-and-cdc-restrictions

  • There are approximately 80,000 cruise ship employees and 150,000 cargo ship employees.

CALL TO ACTION:

Firstly, we need the CDC and international port and health authorities to review its cruise line onboard restrictions, to consider how long they have been at sea with little to no exposure, and to loosen up on their requirements of the cruise lines. If they do not do this and they do not bring all cruise ships to at least a level 2, more lives will be lost as crew members lose their ability to cope with the isolation, loneliness, and depression until they can be repatriated. CDC is not treating each ship as an individual, nor recognizing the efforts of some ships that have not had cases and have submitted reasonable action plans for Covid-19.

Secondly, and URGENTLY, we need an international ruling that mandates all countries to accept their own citizens back into their countries regardless of current border restrictions. The blatant refusal of a country to repatriate its own citizens is appalling, it is tearing apart families and causing severe mental health issues (that will eventually become their country and their health systems problem).

Lastly, we need for CDC to lift some of the travel restrictions in place and to enable cruise lines to send crew homes on commercial flights via. The crew have been better isolated, better monitored with their multiple temperature checks per day, and they are living in much more sterile environments than anyone on land. The USA is already allowing commercial flights and international flights are resuming again. Yet, CDC is treating cruise line crew members like an entirely different species.
