Because toilet paper is the cure for Covid-19. No, wait, it prevents coughing.  No, wait.....

I'm not overly sentimental but, remember the good old days, before Covid-19 when we would just debate whether or not shorts were acceptable in the MDR? I miss those days.

Boarded Liberty today. 400 empty cabins due to cancellations this week. However, the ship doesn’t feel less empty. There’s enough hand sanitizer everywhere that you could bath it in. People must have

Advising someone against cruising isn't the same as banning someone from cruising. If the government comes out and actively says "look, we don't think you should do it", that doesn't mean you can't. Heck, in my mind, that's great...cuts down on the crowds 😉

Nothing I see in that article says they're considering an outright ban, just an advisory against.

for the industry, yes...however...selfishly, think of the half full ships to sail on and the deals the cruise lines will offer to get them back on board. Sign me up!

 

Regardless...not to minimize what's going on...everyone in my area seems to be losing their minds...you can't get toilet paper anywhere right now...I'm glad we buy bulk at Sams.

That Reuter article suggest, the U.S. State Dept. "ARE" encouraging people not to take cruises in the Asian area, no such thing in the U.S. or American areas. The U.S. & American areas are under review....I suspect a clear decision on the wording/recommendation, won't be made, at least at a minimum, until after VP Pence meets with the Cruise Industry CEO's.

Apparently MSNBC was reporting the possibility of all cruises cancelled for next month. That the government would bail them 

I by no means want to see people sick, but I have waited almost 2 years for our cruise in April. All my kids are grown, so it is awsome to get together with all of them. I hope we still get to cruise.

I’m not a fan of MSNBC so we shall see after Pence meets with the heads of the cruise lines this weekend in Ft Lauderdale 

Whose government? LOL

Ok. What's next stop all flights. This is ridiculous in my opinion. As if all cruises are at risk. So am I supposed to think that cruising from Puerto Rico is at risk?  Paranoia is winning and facts are not. Hey let's shut down also disney world because there is been cases in Florida... Like come on 

The way crowds are at Disney right now, I would loveeee for all this to steer some people away! LOL. Well, the fear of it, not the actual virus obviously. We (regrettably) bought WDW annual passes for Christmas and can't deal, I mean can.not.DEEEAL. with the crowds! It would be amazing to not have to wait 20 mins in line for a beer or 2.5 hours for a ride. But hey, "happiest place on earth", right? -_-   Thank goodness for cruises, RC is our true happy place 🙂

Yes but it could allow the government to refuse any help if you get tied up in any virus related issues and delays.

Can they do anything about people buying up all the daggum toilet paper? Good grief.....but nobody is overreacting ....nooooooo. 🙄

With all the panic going on and shortages,  we will probably have to dig into the US government's strategic tp reserves!

I agree.  Cruises aren't the problem.  I don't think the Washington and New York experiences were cruise-related.  Cruises, however, are an example of a group meeting that can spread any disease.  In that sense, there is an increased level of risk.  But what about transit systems in a major city?  We do need to think about our lifestyle, but knocking out cruises, in my opinion, won't inhibit the spread of the disease because there will always be random cases in high-density places exacerbated by a long incubation period.  I vote for living life as you see fit, but being smart about it.  Easy for me to say, as I am getting older...I wish everyone safe and healthy travels.

I am on the Disney World message boards and believe me, there are people on the boards over there saying any day now Disney World will shut down.  

I mean come on. I simply DO NOT see that happening.  no way they close down 30,000 hotel rooms.  Can you imagine the chaos. 

I think for the time being the cruise indistry will continue taking peoples temps, and giving them the option of changing.  I dont see much more than that for now.

Hmmmm.....says anonymous source! I’m crying foul! It is an election year and there are unfortunately people who want to hurt the economy to hurt the President. #JMHO

Or ... what individuals or entities or other interests will make an obscene amount of money selling the vaccine and benefiting from the temporary bear market 🤔
