Carnival might sail ships at reduced capacity
« on: April 16, 2020, 11:00:53 AM »
"Sources indicate the cruise line operator could only allow passengers to book cabins with access to fresh air or make sure there are empty cabins between occupied ones to restrict capacity and create more distancing."

I wonder what the prices will be.
Not that I'm in any hurry to begin sailing again anytime soon.

Princess has already cut the price on a 2021 repo cruise I previously booked.

I'm holding off for a vaccine or at least word that there haven't been any new cases for a while.
I also suspect they'll have installed new filtration systems on all the ships by late next year sometime.

I know it would cause more delay in boarding, but they must have some kind of testing before boarding to weed out the ones who are under the weather.

That wouldn't be my major concern. It's still possible that someone could board who doesn't show any symptoms & cause another Diamond Princess or Grand Princess fiasco.
I personally would like to see a vaccine developed & not let anyone sail until they showed proof that they've received it.
