Covid 19 coronavirus: ‘Captive’ cruise ship staff beg to be arrested

Cruise ship staff being “held captive” on a quarantined vessel off the US coast are starting to beg to be arrested after almost 50 days locked down at sea.

About 750 crew members from 100 countries have been trapped on the MS Oosterdam in international waters since passengers were taken off the ship on March 14.

Staff remained on-board at the time because operations were expected to resume following a 30-day halt imposed on the cruise industry to combat the coronavirus pandemic.
