Tony's family, not good enough?
8 January 2020 | by mastonthrust-1See all my reviews

Am okay episode, but what I found disgusting and disturbing is the fact that Tony's family had to hide from the captain.

In what way could the captain decipher actual paying travelers, or a crew members family? Was it based on their nationality?

They couldn't be served food on deck? They had to eat leftovers in a small cabin?
