British cruise ship crew members "desperate to get home"

The couple are on a cruise ship in the Bahamas

A dancer stranded on a cruise ship in the Bahamas for more than a month has described each day as a rollercoaster of emotions, and said she is desperate to get home.

Lauren Carrick, 29, from Norwich, is a crew member on the Celebrity Infinity ship alongside her dancer fiance Joseph Harrison, 27, from Hull - and the pair are joined by around 900 other crew members.

Guests left the ship in mid-March due to the unfolding coronavirus crisis, and since then the couple have had to endure 21 days in which they were not allowed to even leave their cabin.

They have had their hopes of getting home repeatedly dashed, with plans for flights falling through four times due to US authorities not allowing the crew members to disembark.
