Sorry, not trying to be negative, it’s just that there is Navy hospital ships in Los Angeles and New York, and this virus is a long way from being over!

A bigger question!!! Which cruise lines will still be solvent by September 1st??. Bet there will be some incredible deals on Mega cruise ships for sale this summer! Unless of course, the cruise lines decide to keep all of our payments and reorganize under bankruptcy protection laws of whichever country they are registered within! Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines could reorganize as "Regal Cruises the Caribbean Lines"!  😉 Just throwing it out there! Something to think about. Experts are predicting doom and gloom. A cruise could be the furthest thing on our minds come August! I sure Hope Not!

They've secured lines of credit in the billions.  Based on past results those won't take long to pay off once things get back to normal.

Life will get back to normal.  Maybe not in 2020 but by 2025 this will all be a distant memory.    RCCL will be fine.  Carnival will be fine.  Beyond that is anyone's guess.

Got to say, I'm not remotely confident that cruise lines will "get back to normal" and return to "past results" any time soon.  By 2025?  Maybe.  But how does RCI fill its *growing* capacity in 2020?  2021?  First-time cruisers aren't going to be giving cruising a try any time soon, and even diehards can only afford so many cruises a year.  I could see them selling off ships (assuming anyone would buy them).

They won't sell ships.  Load factors will be down.  

There was a time when ships didn't sail full.  You could request an upgrade on board and there were upgrades to be had.  We will return to those days for a while.  Ships won't sail full for some time.

Wasn't there a time when the gave complimentary upgrades based on your C&A status.....seems even when I started back in 2013, this was the case and you could always ask for a cabin change at Guest services....

Current CAS policy is D+ and P can be upgraded.  That was before RoyalUP but technically CAS policy hasn't changed.  I've never benefited from such an upgrade, maybe now I'll have a chance, assuming RoyalUp doesn't scoop up all upgrades.  Low bidding RoyalUp may be sound practice going forward.

It still makes me laugh when I hear Disney cruise reviews and they talk about still having an upgrade desk at the port.
