Holland America Line crew members must purchase internet packages in order to access the web as they await repatriation during the coronavirus pandemic.

Two Holland America employees confirmed to Business Insider that the Carnival Corporation-owned line is charging crew for internet access. Holland America confirmed to Business Insider that it offers a monthly package of 607 mb for $40. Many Holland America crew members left onboard are enduring pay cuts.

One crew member told Business Insider that they purchased such a WiFi package for the months of April and May. They said that the cost "wouldn't sting as much if the internet worked half of the time."
