Cruise staff stranded: Thousands still await repatriation

As many countries continue to open up, it is a different story out at sea, where thousands are still stuck on cruise ships.

    Tens of thousands of cruise ship staff remain trapped at sea, two months after the pandemic crippled the industry.

    Some say they have been abandoned.

    Many are not being paid, while some have gone on hunger strike.

    Passengers were repatriated through March and April, but getting staff home has been a logistical nightmare for the industry.

    Al Jazeera's Andy Gallacher reports from Miami, United States.
