With a cruise line running out of money and passengers, some cruise ships have started turning to their fans as their last resort.
The problem is that these fans don’t know what to do when a ship comes to a halt.
In the case of a cruise, the passengers may not even know how to navigate their way out of the mess, but their friends, who were onboard the ship at the time, do.
In this episode, MTV News’ Mike D’Antonio and The Huffington Post’s David M. Ryan discuss how they got the idea to do a series of interviews with fans who are stranded on cruise ships.
The two-part series, called “Rescue the People Who Are Hiding,” will air on MTV News and MTV News Online on March 20.
In addition to this, we’ll be talking with the crew of the ship, how the cruise line’s rescue workers are coping with the crisis, and what the next steps are.
In part one, the two-hour special, “Rise, Rise, Rise,” we talked with the captain and crew of Carnival Cruise Line.
In Part Two, we interviewed the crew from the ship where the rescue crew is working.
In these two episodes, we discussed how this rescue effort will work and what you can expect from the rescue effort in the coming days.
You can check out the full episode on MTV and MTVNews.com, and subscribe to the podcast on iTunes, Google Play, or Stitcher.
We’ll be back in a couple of weeks to answer some more listener questions, and we’re also planning to talk about how to help people who are trying to get home from cruise lines.
