Disney Dream Returns to Barbados to Repatriate 268 Crew Members
A Disney Cruise Line ship, the Disney Dream, has docked in Barbados with a special mission: to repatriate 268 crew members.
Loop News Barbados‘ Kerri Gooding reported the news that crew members boarded a British Airways flight for home on Saturday evening. This is the second time this week that crew members were repatriated, as roughly 400 crew members from the Disney Dream and Disney Wonder were sent home via British Airways and charter flights last Sunday. The repatriation process has been happening for several weeks, with crew members flying to London, New York, and Canada, according to Gooding.
Disney Cruise Line suspended departures on all its ships back in March as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Currently, sailings aboard the Wonder are suspended until at least mid-September, with sailings on the Magic currently scheduled to resume October 3rd.
