Repatriated Filipino Royal Caribbean crew member says buffets returned


It appears that life onboard the cruise ships with no COVID-19 cases started to feel a little more familiar around the third-month mark for some crew.


Despite some crew members stranded at sea around the world reportedly becoming depressed as promised chartered flights home kept being rescheduled or cancelled and little to no communication as it related to timely updates, some crewmates started to feel as though they were turning a corner towards good in the last month.


One ship worker who worked on Royal Caribbean Liberty of the Seas spoke to Loop anonymously as he waited to board his repatriation flight to The Philippines from Barbados.


Though saying that life was not bad on board while being stranded for months, as he prepared to head into the Departure Lounge with his ticket in hand, with a huge smile he said: "I am happy to be flying home."


He gathered his tacklings, tossed his water bottle and along with five other crewmen, three of whom had just finishing checking, the group chatted loudly and happily as they enjoyed knowing they would be waking up in the East soon, back at home with friends and family.


So the crew members being repatriated will have a longer break on shore and at home if they are still contracted with Royal Caribbean.
