As of June 18, 34,716 crew members have been repatriated and we will not stop until we get everyone home safely.

Our teams have been working around the clock to get each and every one our crew members home as safely and quickly as possible. This is an ever-changing situation as we work with U.S. authorities and more than 60 countries around the world. Our repatriation plans must abide by the travel restrictions in place by each nation, so we have been working with all local and international government entities to stay compliant within these guidelines. 

Our crew continue to be strong, positive, and work together to keep each other safe. Each day brings us closer to being through with this unfortunate chapter in our history, and one day closer to better times. We are a family, and we are in this together!
