Canadian cruise ship crew workers who had been left stranded by the novel coronavirus pandemic have returned to Canada, the country’s foreign affairs minister says.

He said officials are “continuing to work with cruise lines and local authorities to ensure the safe return of remaining Canadian crew.”
