  1. I found this article extremely interesting, especially the 44% by end of 2021. Seems low and still extremely tough for cruise lines financially. I wonder how accurate the research is?
  2. Well the Leafs won’t lose to Boston first round, but you’re right....the won’t make it past first round. GO CANUCKS!!! PS never thought I’d be having a hockey discussion on this board lol
  3. I am not surprised by this but you won’t hear this part of the story reported in the news. most people who test positive go into isolation and end of story but where the money is (professional sports etc how many times have we seen ‘positive’ cases reported only to have retests show the person is actually negative. Same with the MSC ship earlier this year that had 6 crew test ‘positive’ only to have retests come back negative. A positive test is often false. (And yes I know negative tests could be wrong as well)
  4. Just curious if anyone has heard any rumours or rumblings on which ships will be the first back in service? When the NSO was replaced by the CSO I was originally excited as my next booked cruise is February on Symphony. I figured things would be running by then and with stops in both Labadee and Coco Cay odds were pretty good the sailing could happen. My excitement is dwindling as it now appears test cruises aren’t happening till January........
  5. I watched a YouTube video of this cruise last weekend and also noticed that crew were not wearing masks
  6. As one of the conditions of the conditional sail order is no cruises longer than 7 days I would assume that back to back cruises would not be allowed during the initial return to cruise phase.
  7. What the vaccine will hopefully do is eliminate the public health emergency which will hopefully remove restrictions that have been put in place.
  8. I wonder if having a negative test result from the cruise lines mandatory rapid test could be used to waive the 14 day quarantine when re entering Canada. We are booked in February, I can easily work from home if required to quarantine but not so easy for my wife.
  9. 91 days since I got off Allure Supposed to be embarking Celebrity Eclipse on Sunday 166 days till Norwegian Bliss
  10. Does anyone have any insight into wether it would be feasible for the cruise lines to run their ships at less than full capacity? I've heard a lot about how Royal posted 5 billion in profits in 2019. If this is accurate it would seem to this peon that there would be room in the budget to have ships running at less than capacity and still making money. It would seem to me that this would be the only option to having cruises resume before a vaccination is in place as social distancing (I hate this term, it makes no sense. Its physical distancing!) is pretty much impossible on a cruise ship
  11. Preach on! I am a loyal disciple of your new cruise ship church! Take my money and I'll see you on Sunday. (or whatever day is deemed worship day)
  12. I already posed this question to my employer as they know I am an avid cruiser. the response I received is that whatever guidelines are in place by the government and health officials are what they will follow. So if no 14 day quarantine imposed by health officials my employer would not impose one on me for cruising.
  13. WOW! While the headline is great news for us cruise lovers, the article itself is scathing of the cruise industry......including blaming cruising for the virus entering US cities. SMH
  14. Sorry......you would be second, right behind me
