NCL-Norwegian Cruise Line announced it will return all crew who joined recently and were not part of the skeleton crew back home.
In an audio that CRUISES-INFO.COM had access where the Captain informed the crew the sad news that all those crew members who had recently joined, and who are not essential, will be repatriated as soon as possible, this too made official through a letter where all the details of the process were mentioned.
NCL boarded thousands of crew members in November and December 2020, with the hope that they would resume operations in early 2021 in compliance with CDC regulations. However with the latest announcement and further suspension of operations issued by Norwegian Cruise Line on January 19, that they will delay the start of cruising through April 30, 2021, the company realized they are not going to be starting anytime soon.
The repatriation process will take place on two appointed ships. The Norwegian Joy which is in Aruba will gather non-essential crew from the ships stationed in the Caribbean and will proceed to the Philippines.

The Norwegian Encore which is in Southampton will make a few different stops along her journey back to Asia. The repatriation process will be similar to the one that took place last year with crew transfers to the appropriate vessel, before the crew finally sails to their homes in India, Indonesia and the Philippines, with anticipated arrival to the final destinations in late March or early April 2021.
