Passenger died on board
After the death of a passenger on board, the 'Oasis of the Seas' returned to Port Miami on Jan 23, 2022. The death was the result of a medical episode. The ship had set sail with just under 5,000 passengers and was in port to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Atlantis Cruises, an annual charter cruise event.
Cruise line Royal Caribbean wrongly fined, Dutch Court rules
The Dutch court in The Hague has ruled on April 24 that the 'Oasis of the Seas' was wrongly fined €992,000 for an assumed violation of rules and regulation related to working conditions. In 2014 the Inspectorate for working conditions levied the fine on the basis of the Labour Act for aliens. Inspectors of the department of the Dutch ministry of social affairs and employment visited the vessel while it was docked at Keppel Verolme in Botlek Rotterdam (now Damen). It found that foreign workers on board the cruise ship did not have the proper Dutch work permits. However, it transpired that the foreign workers within the Royal Caribbean riding crew were legally allowed to refurbish the inside of the cruise ship without having a Dutch work permi and it was not necessary to apply for a work permit. The exception to the rule is laid down in the Article 1e(1)(c) of the Decree implementing the Law on the Employment of Foreign Nationals. The Dutch trade Union FNV has suggested going to a higher court for reconsideration of the ruling.
Second crew member died in hospital
Two crew members of the 'Oasis of the Seas' have died in a Broward County, Florida hospital after being evacuated from the ship due to health problems. The first death was that of the Philippine Dexter Joyosa, who served as a waiter on the djip. His death was confirmed by the ship's captain through a loudspeaker. On April 20, Iputu Sugiartha, an Indonesian national, died too in the hospital. The company was in contact with his family to provide support. These deaths were in addition to that of a 'Symphony of the Seas' crew member, also from Royal Caribbean, who died on April 12, after being evacuated from the ship.News schreiben
