As the news highlights stories of cruise ships working to offload passengers, there is growing concern for the tens of thousands of crew members, mostly foreign nationals, who remain stuck on board these ships in or near US territorial waters. Over the past several weeks, the Coast Guard says it has processed more than 120 vessels, collectively disembarking 250,000 passengers onto US soil. However, the US Coast Guard has indicated that there are still 114 cruise ships carrying 93,000 crew members either in or near U.S. ports and waters.
