Crew members complained of missing safety measures
Crew members on board the 'Norwegian Escape' have claimed they were being forced to share rooms amid the coronavirus pandemic despite the availability of single-crew cabins. Workers on the ship were in quarantine with people who have come from other vessels in the Norwegian Cruise Line fleet. They said that despite a ship doctor dying on board the 'Norwegian Gem', the company has not stepped up measures to ensure those on board were safe. This week European workers were consolidated onto the 'Norwegian Breakaway' and non-Europeans were placed on the 'Norwegian Escape' before they left Great Stirrup Cay in the Bahamas and headed for Miami, Florida. The CDC was now evaluating the issue. Security will now be increased around the ship to make sure crew members abide by these rules. If the rules were not being adhered to then the next step will be crew are to remain in their rooms and eat only at the allotted time only.
