Nearly 20,000 Indian crew working onboard cruise vessels were left stranded all over the globe after the Coronavirus crisis forced cruise companies to suspend operations.

Cruise liners have sailed thousands of nautical miles to Mumbai India to drop off the stranded crew. Hundreds of crew members have also been repatriated on chartered flights arranged by the cruise operators to Goa-Mormugao and Mumbai over the past days.

More crew are still stranded overseas. 650 are stuck on Marella Explorer in the UK for 90 days.
