As much as I would like to throw caution to the wind I think I'll forgo my typical fall cruises this year and wait until they come up with a vaccine.
It should prove interesting to see what transpires once they begin sailing again.

Just think, no chair hogs, no need for reservations in the DR and no need to rush to the show lounge to get a decent seat.
Just joking of course.  ;)

Many of the crew will find jobs at home & might not return to the ships later this year.

I can't imagine that there would be to many customers even if they did sail from a US port.

What's got me wondering is what the ships "black box" records & why it's information would be of interest to the authorities?

The day when the crew has to wear masks & gloves to serve the food will keep me off the ships forever.

Investing in your own company has always been said to not be a smart move.

Both my wife & I have the typical older age problems.....high blood pressure & high cholesterol. I wonder how that would influence their decision to let us sail in the future?
Somehow I can't really believe it would keep us off any cruise line since many others have the same medical ailments.

I agree with their thinking 100%. I know we'll be sailing in the future as soon as this virus pandemic is solved but there are many people who won't return to what was an enjoyable form of a vacation.
Still many other newbies won't venture on a cruise ship because of all the bad publicity all the cruise lined have gotten recently.
It'll be a long time until this recent occurrence is forgotten & anything of a typical cruise returns once more.
It's still tempting to think about purchasing more CCL stock but I think I'll pass for other opportunities & just wish them the best for the future. 

I'm guessing they dock this weekend sometime when they finally get the Zaandam and Rotterdam unloaded.

That does sound a little far fetched. Drive them home? What is wrong with the way they got there unless they started at a different port.

I suspect this article was written in a hurry without being checked for accuracy.  ;D
Like most things these days it changes by the moment.

I suspect we'll see a resurgence this fall when they begin operations once more although they'll be many people who swear off cruising for life. The newbies will replace the older crowd in the years to come.

The Zaandam and Rotterdam were in port yesterday.
