Cruise ships are stripped for scrap as market collapses in coronavirus pandemic

The coronavirus cruise liner graveyard at the port in Aliaga, a town 30 miles north of Izmir on Turkey’s west coast, bustled with work again on Friday as workers stripped walls, windows and railings from five vessels. Cruise ships were home to the some of the earliest clusters of COVID-19 as the pandemic spread globally early this year. In March, U.S. authorities issued a no-sail order for all cruise ships that remains in place, and many other countries, including the United Kingdom, have issued specific advice against traveling on the vessels.

    Some of those ships look already very old. I highly doubt they were recently placed there. I’d say a few years old at least
