Chinese passengers on board a detained cruise ship in South Korea began leaving the craft on Sunday amid a legal dispute that prevented the boat from departing late last week, The Wall Street Journal reported. Over 2,300 passengers and crew members have been stranded on the ship docked at the Korean island of Jeju. HNA Group, the company that owns the cruise ship, will send four planes to return 1,000 passengers while the remaining passengers will return by plane or ship. The vessel itself is expected to leave the island as early as Monday.
