疫情感染嚴重的豪華郵輪 – 鑽石公主號 ,1日已經完成全員下船,而其中最後一名離開的人,就是義大利籍的船長阿爾馬(Gennaro Arma)。面對來自在船上隔離將近一個月,3711名乘員的恐慌與不安,身為郵輪上最高總指揮的Captain Arma究竟是如何撫平眾人的情緒,雖然疲憊仍帶著笑容堅守崗位直到最後一刻呢?就讓我們跟著CNN Focused Figure焦點人物報導,一起來認識這位最後一個下船的男人、永不放棄的英雄—Gennaro Arma。


His ship may have been to hell and back, becoming a floating coronavirus-infected prison for passengers quarantined at port in Japan, but when the captain of the Diamond Princess cruise ship became the last person aboard to finally step onto dry land, he looked entirely unruffled by the experience.

對於被隔離在日本港口的鑽石公主號乘客而言,這艘變成新冠肺炎監獄的郵輪如同剛從地獄歸來,但身為最後一個下船踏上陸地的船長,Gennaro Arma看起來完全不為此經驗所影響。

Arma apparently proved himself a tireless rock for his passengers and crew during their ordeal and he’s been widely praised for helping lift spirits and for setting a noble example of how a captain should deal with adversity.

很顯然,在這段痛苦的時期,Arma船長向他的乘客與工作人員證明了自己如同堅韌的磐石,他協助眾人提振士氣以及身為船長,面對困境的崇高榜樣也被廣為頌讚。

His employer, Princess Cruises, has already expressed its gratitude for its captain’s efforts.

“From his regular daily shipboard updates to his tireless coordination with public health authorities and his on-board team, Captain Arma’s contributions have been hailed worldwide as a case study in outstanding leadership best practices,” Princess Cruises president Jan Swartz said in a statement to CNN.

他的雇主,公主郵輪公司,早已表達對於船長的努力的感激之情。

公主郵輪公司總裁Jan Swartz向CNN表示:「他固定且毫不懈怠的配合將每日船務資訊匯報給公共衛生機關和他在船上的組員們,Arma船長的貢獻得到來自全球的讚揚,是個在傑出領導方面的最佳研究個案。」

Passengers too have praised Arma’s steady leadership and the comfort he showed them through regular messages, updates and even gifts. Passengers were thankful for the Valentine gifts and food, posting photos online of what Arma’s crew provided them with.

乘客們同樣十分讚賞Arma船長的穩定領導以及他向乘客們傳遞的定期資訊、近況更新,甚至是禮物。乘客們紛紛上網PO出照片,表示非常感謝Arma船長的團隊所提供給他們的情人節禮物及點心。

It’s not just those who endured the drama on board who have praised the captain. His actions have resonated worldwide, especially in Italy where many people have seen him as embodying Italian endurance and the spirit of sacrifice.

不僅僅只有在船上的乘客們如此推崇船長,他的舉動已流傳全世界,特別是在義大利,許多人視他為義大利人堅忍與捨己精神的體現。

Matching heroism with humility, Arma’s final message to his crew stressed that it was teamwork that pulled them all through. “We are all on the final leg of our journey,” he wrote. “Stay strong, look after yourselves. We will finish as we started: together. Thank you, my gladiators, and buon appetito.”
與他的英勇相稱的還有他的謙遜,Arma船長最後給組員們的訊息中強調了是因為團隊的合作才得以度過難關。「我們都在這趟旅程的尾聲了,保持堅定,照顧好你們自己,我們會一起結束這一切,如同我們起初一起開始一般。謝謝你們,我的勇士們,以及好好開動吧!」
