Carnival Conducts Cross-Country Crew Transfer In Panama As Repatriation Continues
Carnival Cruise Line is in the final stages of its repatriation efforts, and recently worked closely with the country of Panama to conduct a cross-country crew transfer.
With Carnival Miracle positioned on Panama’s Pacific coast, nearly 100 team members boarded buses for a 90-minute chartered transfer to join Carnival Glory, which was docked on the country’s Atlantic side. Team members from other ships will also join Glory, which will sail to Curacao for charter and commercial flights to their home countries.
As of this week, Carnival Cruise Line says it has repatriated nearly 20,000 team members from its 27 ships. Carnival expects to repatriate 26,000 crew members home to more than 100 nations over the coming weeks.
