'The cruise ship Norwegian Sun hit a piece of an iceberg on Saturday, sustaining damage to its starboard bow, according to a statement from the U.S. Coast Guard (USCG).

A member from the Coast Guard Sector Juneau Prevention Team and contracted divers assessed damage to the right front side and determined the ship was seaworthy to go back to Seattle, its home port, for repairs, the release states.'

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?

"Morgan Stanley analysts slashed their base case price target to $7, according to Bloomberg, and maintained an Underweight rating on the stock. In a worst, or “bear case” scenario, Carnival’s (ticker: CCL ) price could reach zero, they added."

"A Carnival spokesperson said the company was “making strong progress” as it continued to restart its fleet around the globe.

“There is pent-up demand for cruising and our occupancy levels continue to rise with our Carnival Cruise Line brand at 100% last quarter and forecasting 110% occupancy for the third quarter,” the spokesperson said in an emailed statement."

Cruising Chatter / Re: SpaceX Starlink blows cruising Wi-Fi out of the water

Interesting.
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.

Cruising Chatter / Why Viking is forgoing the word 'cruise' in its brand
« Last post by Host Mike on June 28, 2022, 11:15:13 AM »
"The word evokes visions of a megaship, noisy and full of kids, he said, adding that the Viking product is different. It's for that reason that Hagen is stripping "cruising" from the brand's name."

"Hagen pointed me to a list of reasons Viking is unlike other ocean-oriented vacation brands: No kids under 18, no casinos, no umbrella drinks, no inside staterooms and no formal nights. The list goes on, like no charges for WiFi or laundry."
