On Monday, Jezebel reported that Norwegian Cruise Lines had quietly removed its employees’ access to emergency contraception. It is a decision that remains unexplained and unjustified, and one that has the potential to seriously affect the lives of its female employees.

While researching the piece, it became clear that for all the coverage about what a blissful/hellish experience it is to be a guest on a cruise, there is a serious lack of reporting done on the working conditions of cruise employees, particularly for women.
