    Wow a $550 annual fee would almost pay for a 3-day cruise in full. Why have a card that charges so much of a fee?

    I am in the same spot as you. First cruise for my son April 24th cancelled, now fathers day weekend cancelled. I know these are first world problems but it is disappointing to the kids.

    "Dear Guest,

    We hope that amidst this situation, you have remained healthy, safe, and optimistic that each day that passes, is another day closer to a more regular day-to-day. While this is like nothing any of us have ever experienced, we continue to evaluate how it impacts our upcoming sailings and our return to service.

    The most recent plan was to resume operation on June 12th, 2020. However, after consulting with our partners at Cruise Lines International Association and in conjunction with the CDC, our global suspension has been extended through July 31st, 2020, and with a plan to resume operation on August 1st, 2020. As a result, your sailing will unfortunately be cancelled.

    While we all wish we were cruising, health and safety are our top priorities as we focus on our comeback. In the meantime, below are some options for you, including one that has been very well received by our guests, as it provides a little something extra to use when we all start cruising again!

    I should think once churches, restaurants, colleges, child care centers and schools have been cleared to open then cruising can also resume.  
    Those environments are vastly more risky and likely to lead to virus transmission compared to a cruise ship as determined by the CDC.  
    Using noro modeling as an example of an easily transmissible disease we can draw parallels to COVID-19 transmission.  
    https://www.cdc.gov/norovirus/trends-outbreaks/outbreaks.html

    The CDC has determined that healthcare facilities are the leading source for noro outbreaks, followed by restaurants then schools, child care centers and universities.  By their own determination the CDC has determined that cruise ships "account for a small percentage (1%) of reported norovirus outbreaks overall".    Health care facilities, restaurants and schools account for a combined 90.9% of noro outbreaks. Contrast that with cruise ships at 1%.  
    Much like noro we have observed that healthcare facilities are a leading source of transmission of COVID-19.  The fact that restaurants and schools were closed around the world indicates that they are recognized as environments that can facilitate the spread of disease.  Unlike restaurants and schools they couldn't close healthcare facilities so unfortunately thousands of COVID-19 victims have died in healthcare facilities and the COVID-19 outbreaks and deaths we have observed are consistent with this model, the difference being death vs. mostly discomfort.  All of this supports the modeling we see for noro outbreaks can be followed in general terms for COVID-19. 
    Restaurants are beginning to re-open.  First in a scaled back fashion designed to counter just how risky they are (22.1 % of all outbreaks).    
    So it stands to reason that if schools and day care can open (6.1% of all outbreaks) and the risk of COVID-19 has been determined to be low enough for schools and day care to open, then cruise ships can also resume operation safely (1% of all outbreaks).  In fact if restaurants can open close to the former operating standards and that is determined to be low or acceptable risk then it stands to reason that cruise ships can open before schools.
    While cruise ships have been singled out and receive a lot of press during both noro and COVID-19 outbreaks, the CDC's own statistics prove how much safer cruise ships are in general terms with much lower risk associated with them.
