Report from Norwegian Escape crew member: We are tired of extended contracts

Jun 15, 2022

I’m a crew member currently here onboard Norwegian Escape. 

We have a situation here that most of the crew members are being extended without our consent. 

I supposed to go home on May 11 then extend to May 17 and another extension on May 26 and another extension again June 6 now another extension june 16. 

The management is making an excuse that the flights are fully booked, and that they can’t send us home. Many crew from the housekeeping department (cabin steward) are really tired exhausted and stressed because we are all 9 months here. 

Some of us are getting positive on antigen tests and we are tired already. We need and deserve vacation this is not right they need to send us home. 

We cannot function well on our work can u please help us address this situation. They can’t even send us from our home port Civitavecchia because of visa issues.
