"The cruise industry could be in rocky waters again: Difficulties with hiring crew members has hindered several cruise lines' operations, leaving some would-be cruise-goers with fewer onboard dining options or canceled trips.

Like on-land hospitality companies, cruise lines haven't been immune to worker shortages" amid the Great Resignation. And now, a lack of available cruise workers has begun affecting itineraries and onboard amenities."

I suppose you can't blame the old crew members for not wanting to wait around 2 years for a job.
Even if they all did return to work, who's to say that the cruise line wouldn't be shut down again in the near future.
