Complex and expensive
'It's a complex and expensive way to do it, but it's the most reliable way to get these men and women home to their families as quickly as possible,' RCL Chairman and CEO Richard Fain said Wednesday.
He noted Royal Caribbean crew come from more than 100 countries around the world that have widely different safety protocols and travel restrictions.
'This has turned what should be a simple task into a monumental one,' Fain said. He added that the company's teams are working 'around the clock with a multitude of governing bodies' to expedite crew repatriation.
