Cruising Chatter / Re: Current status of cruise brand operations

I'm guessing the temperature taking when boarding, possibly a tighter control on serving food in the buffet.
How much good it will do is questionable since crowding is next to impossible to enforce....like sitting next to someone in the DR and lounges.
You though a table for 2 was hard to get last year......just wait.  ::)

Unless they find a vaccine for this virus I'm thinking cruising will be put off by most people for quite a while.

Thanks. That provides quite a sampling of cruise ship to keep an eye on after they begin cruising later this year just to see if that nasty virus pops up once again.

As mass testing becomes widespread there 'might' be an opportunity for prescreened PAX cruises. Just saying!
I'll be watching very closely.

I wonder if they can have filled any of the first ships to sail with enough people to make a profit?
No matter what the date. Everyone will be so skeptical about sailing it would be impossible to relax & have a good time.

"After the nation's top disease response agency posted orders keeping cruise ships docked last Wednesday night, extending the ban through August, the White House Coronavirus Task Force stepped in to cut it by 20 days.

When the no-sail order reappeared on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s website hours later, its language had been softened: Ships can sail again in July, and an explicit warning that they could be docked even longer had been deleted, according to emails and internal documents obtained by USA TODAY.

The company said it also cancelled all Carnival Sunrise itineraries out of New York to the end of this year.
