This would mean Liberty and Anthem aren't sailing at all this year; I know the NJ and NYC ports said no cruises for a while but..... That Adventure will be the only sailing out  of Galveston, which doesn't open until Nov. I want to assume the H stands for half capacity and the F for full.

I decided to hide the posts that had the alleged dates. On the one hand, if it's inaccurate it spreads false info. If it's true, well, it says confidential and I'm not sure how I feel about posting it.  I hid the posts, so they may come back, it's an ethical dilemna and I'm not sure how I feel about it quite yet.  

I hope you all understand. I really try not to be overly censor things at all. I hate the idea of heavy moderation, but at the end of the day, I aim to ensure we spread the correct info here.

I can still see two posts with dates? Including the original one.

Well lets just hope it isnt true. Because if it is the company would have a lot to answer to. Still selling these cruises, making people make final payments knowing that they will not be cruising.

Would make for an interesting class action to help jump the line in creditors if needed. Willfully selling cruises you knew would never go in hopes of generating much needed liquidity.

Ok good because now I can just say it was a bad dream! I didn’t really see it! 😁

@Andrew72681 That might be a hard pill to swallow since it can be argued that  just because they haven't removed the listing doesn't mean they have any culpability. Cruise companies have always released itineraries early. People make the choice to book, now.......knowing there are mitigating factors involved. Maybe a class action lawsuit would have worked if cruise lines weren't given the scarlet A but now..... A jury/judge would be less sympathetic because they believe it is crazy to want to cruise.

I'll go out on a limb and say the executives have a pretty good idea of the path forward. I'd wager they are working towards a re-launch in August or towards the next announcement of cancellations. If I had to guess, the latter.

FYI: I only saw the original post which doesn't seem authentic (but hey could be), Matt hid them before I could see.

Ok, so if cruising in the US restarts March/April 2021 and Matt and others had previously suggested a phased restart, would the Alaska 2021 season started on time or be delayed?  Can someone check with magic 8 ball because we are scheduled to go to Alaska in June 2021?

The magic 8 ball has broken and is no longer functioning...............thanks 2020.  Pick a random yes or a random no to answer your question about the Alaska 2021 season.  Both answers are correct, potentially.  (Of course, no one knows what is going to actually happen.....)

Oh man, if this is the case, I’m barely squeaking in my October 17 Symphony 

Guess I would believe the North American ports w/Carribean before any of the European routes.  I think they'll still be arguing about who gets let in for tourism through 2020.   I'm wondering if we see Apex pulled from Europe and deployed in Carribean this year.

If schools open in August in Florida and it goes well, we will be cruising by October.

My daughter's college here in NJ is also planning to open in early August instead of September, as a way to try and be ahead of any fall spike that shuts the schools down early. They're taking a lot of precautions, including having all voice majors do their vocal training and rehearsals outdoors under open canopies to minimize the risk of spread as much as possible. Yes, singing causes more spread than coughing or sneezing in some cases!

We'll see how it goes, but I honestly think it's going to take more than the college kids being responsible to get a broader reopening in the fall. Though it might be a bit easier to pull off in Florida, where fall means comfortable outdoor weather every day (when there isn't a storm blowing through, anyway).
