As of June 17, 42,000 cruise ship workers were still trapped at sea with no pay. I wonder how many are still there. This article has no mention of that problem.

I have no doubt that Carnival or whatever buys its ashes will come roaring back.  Thinks of Social Security as a vehicle where young people transfer their income to old people who use it to buy cruises.

Who would disallow it? The ships are parked in international waters. There's nobody in charge out there.

And that makes it okay? Cool.

These companies have corporate headquarters, or offices in arguably civilised countries. That's be a place to start.

For one example, Carnival Cruise Line is a subsidiary of a multibilion-dollar multinational corporation that has weathered not only worse scandals than this but is apparently surviving this global pandemic despite having all of its 100+ cruise ships non-operational for months at a time.

Difficult target.
