I'm afraid the staff shortages will be with us for a long time.
The believe the original crew members have found other work during the shutdown and just prefer to stay home.

I'm closely watching for possible Diamond Princess November thru February cancellations. The current location of the Diamond Princess is a mystery to me.

With the current protocols just being relaxed, I'm thinking there might be some cancelations of various trips since they can't seem to get sufficient crew to handle the situation right now.
No less the increase in business from people who were waiting to book.
Good luck.
