The first round of crew left the vessel to be repatriated via charter flights. The day Carnival Breeze docked in Southampton (May 16) were disembarked ~70 crew (citizens of the UK, Ireland, Italy, Australia, Zambia, Romania). On May 17 were disembarked ~170 crew (citizens of Spain, Portugal, Hungary, Serbia, Macedonia). The ship left Sthe UK on May 17 and is now en-route to Cadiz Spain, to be followed by stops in Civitavecchia Italy and Dubrovnik Croatia.
In April, all CCL-Carnival Cruise Line ships met off the coast of The Bahamas to start massive crew repatriation. All the crew on Carnival Breeze were in the middle of a contract on March 13, 2020, when CCL suspended its passenger shipping services. Since then, global travel restrictions have prohibited a lot of crew to reach their home countries from the USA.
