    I suppose they could revert to the old menu that didn't have the good stuff the new fee based menu does.
    On the other hand, if guests are fearful to the point that in room dining is how they desire to isolate in their cabin then I'm wondering a little bit if these guests should consider shifting their cruise into the future.  I'm not trying to be aggressive or argumentative, just... why go on a cruise during the restart phase if the desire is to stay in the cabin most of the time?
    I get it.  These are strange times.  The restart of cruising is going to be a strange time.  It won't be for everyone.  Time spent in a dining venue is minor relative to the time in all other aspects of the overall experience. 
    If eating all meals in your cabin is the only way to be confident during the restart phase, you might want to consider delaying cruising until the future when the experience will be closer to normal.

    In reference to the "Safety Guarantee" reading the article it's not clear what "guarantee" she was referring to.  She was in the middle of reviewing an excursion from the ship.  
    In the past if did your own thing at a port of call and missed the ship's departure you were responsible for any and all costs to continue your vacation from there, the ship won't wait for you.  When you book an excursion through the cruise line and the excursion returns late the ship will wait or they will pay the costs to reunite you with the ship.  They don't guarantee you'll enjoy the excursion, just your return to the ship.  Perhaps this is the "safety" she was referring to that comes with being required to take a ship excursion.
    Given that the writer is Italian writing about a cruise in Italy it's possible the "guarantee" reference doesn't mean what it would to someone here in America.  She uses the word in another sentence in reference to the buffet:
    "The waiters, in addition to face masks, wear gloves while preparing the dishes. An additional guarantee."
    As we know wearing gloves doesn't eliminate any or all risk.  Gloves are a step towards mitigation but stop well short of eliminating all risk.  I don't think the cruise line is guaranteeing a guest has zero chance of becoming infecting, the writer chose a word that carries a different meaning in this part of the world.

    Update -
    Since the listing on our VA house went “live” yesterday (Thursday), we decided it would be best just to skeedaddle and run away to western MD to visit my daughter and see her new house.  For @coneyraven, they live in Garrett County in Oakland. I don’t know much more about the area except that it is beautiful out here in the sticks (meant lovingly).  We watched a big (probably 8 point) buck with his deer-ladies grazing in their yard (5 acres).  Simply beautiful. Of course, all Dan could talk about was shootIng them with a bow, but I avoided a philosophical confrontation on the subject.  
     
    Back to the house.  I am overwhelmed by the attraction the house has generated !  We have over 30 confirmed viewing appointments between Thursday and Saturday plus an open house on Sunday. Getting out of town was the RIGHT move.  We did have 1 negative review (objection to the yard slope, which is legitimate) but everything else has been ragingly positive.  I think we’re going to be very happy with the decision to sell now. Our Agent is very pleased. We told him to hold all offers until we get back.  Don’t want to deal with that right now.
    I change my mind daily (even more often some days) about whether to accept the job offer I have and remain in VA until the FL house is ready or move straight away to FL.  He keeps sweetening the job offer so it’s getting harder to decline so I outsmarted him (I hope).  I sent him a list of all my cruise dates for the next year !  That should discourage him !  Lol
    Off to breakfast with the fam.

    If this is how people are learning they carry a viral infection it's probably a good thing they booked a cruise.  Otherwise they would be in their community spreading the disease without ever knowing.  
    Once they know they are infected they can stop putting other people at risk, address their health condition in isolation and hopefully recover.
    Otherwise it's sort of like saying we should just stop testing people because no one wants to find out they have it.
