Whether masks are useless or offer some value I'll still prefer to take my chances without having to wear on everyplace on the ship.
It's what we've been doing at home here in Florida and it's worked out fine for us even when the virus was at it peak. Now that the effects have seemed to subside it's all the more reason not to wear one.

Cruising Chatter / Re: Why Cruise Line Stocks Plunged Again Today

Oh well, at this point I'll only be out less than $900 if it drops to zero.
Considering I'm getting $250 on my next cruise it's worth holding on to it.
But I doubt I'd buy any more as an investment.

It's a good indication of the uncertainty of cruising for the near future.
Nothing will ever be the same as it's been for the past 10 or 15 years.  :(

I'm seeing on the Princess website higher prices along with the $1 deposit deal today on my two 2023 February bookings.  Go figure.

I was going to check a trip on the Enchanted for next Feb and I haven't had time to check it yet but I think it may be the case for most cruises.
It's just another Princess sale (without any substance).

What I don't understand is how the stork could possible fall to zero since the company still has their ships that have to be worth something.
Could it be that they're far in debt and everything they own has been put up as collateral?

What else would you expect, its a Carnival ship.  ;D

Someone mentioned in the comments that Princess isn't using Starlink yet. Although the satellite reception in the Caribbean on the Enchanted was very good I can't wait until they change over as I've read many others on different chips complain lately about service.

Can you imagine if it had happened to the Crown, with their generator problems.

Boy, is he even reaching for material to post about. 😆

It may not be a fool proof prevention. But i will take precautions. Every little bit helps.
It helps by keeping a lot of people from sailing altogether.

There's a couple of ships we won't care to sail on.
We like the ships, just not the masks.

Could be lots more loose rock ready to come down.
