Princess News & Princess Chatter / Regal Princess Flunks USPH Sanitation Inspection
« Last post by Host Mike on February 24, 2020, 05:10:17 PM »
"USPH inspectors found flies and soiled surfaces and equipment in the galley, inadequate acute gastroenteritis logs and reports, clogged nozzles and drain lines, potentially unhygienic swimming pools and hot tubs, a child in diapers in a pool, and a food employee with long, dirty fingernails (1 mm past his fingers), included in the 44 violations.

This is the lowest sanitation score in the seven year history of this cruise ship. It ties the lowest score ever given to a cruise ship operated by a major cruise line (like Carnival, Norwegian, or Royal Caribbean). It is the lowest sanitation score ever for a cruise ship operated by Princess Cruises."

I think I have some problems with my router software.
I'll have to do an update.
There are other things that won't download properly.

Just downloaded the latest update this morning.
Addressed issues with JourneyView not loading correctly for some users, and OceanCompass settings under My Profile.

"The announcement by Japan's Healthy Ministry on Tuesday takes the total number of cases on the ship to 542 - making it the largest outbreak of the virus outside the epicentre in Hubei province, China - with 65 of the new 88 not showing symptoms."

I think many people will be steering clear of any trips on those 2 ships for a quite a while.
There is still much to be learned a about this virus. I imagine the task of disinfecting an entire vessel is daunting. The crew assigned to any vessel where an outbreak has occurred are in an untenable situation. They likely won't be released from their contracts.

Princess News & Princess Chatter / Medallion Class App Update

The Medallion Class app is due for an update by the end of this week.
Hopefully it'll resolve some of the many problems that a few of us have experienced.  ;)
Then again it'll probably introduce a few new ones as well.

"The assessments was carried out by the NSW Chief Human Biosecurity Officer, the NSW Health Chief Health Officer and public health physicians.

All cruise ships coming into Sydney will not be allowed to dock until they have undergone the same health assessment, NSW Health confirmed."

"Smith, however, said he's sceptical about the proposed plan.

[/b]"I understand getting off the ship to be in another space, but under this circumstance, the offer is we're going to put you on buses with other people who haven't completed their quarantines and have not been tested for the virus," Smith said.

"We're going to then put you on a plane with all these people and take you back to the United States, and because of the risk you still pose due to that situation we're going to stick you in another quarantine."
