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

Cruising Chatter / Re: Carnival Corp. Won't Go Bankrupt: A Dive Into Its Debt

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.

The kicker will be if those 70 and older have to provide a doctor's permission slip to board.  If that happens I think Princess will have a much harder time filling ships.  Why CLIA advocated for cruise age discrimination is a real mystery.

The Saudi's and yours truly bought CCL around 18.  Micky Arison added more CCL to his stash around 10.  Do you suppose the Saudi's and Arison know more than a little bit about CCL?

"(CNN)Australian police boarded the Ruby Princess cruise ship Wednesday night to gather evidence for an investigation into how thousands of passengers were allowed to disembark in Sydney last month resulting in a spike of coronavirus cases.

Over 600 cases and 15 deaths have been linked to the ship, according to public broadcaster ABC. "

"Genting plans to have infrared fever screenings at gangways and require all passengers ages 70 and up to show doctors’ notes before boarding. The Hong Kong-based company will cut the capacity at entertainment venues by half and have buffet dishes served by staff in masks and disposable gloves.

“This might be the start of all buffets going away,” Stifel analyst Steven Wieczynski said in a note Thursday."

Not a great time for a cruise anywhere.

I'm just finding it a little surreal that people are cruising at a time when our world is being reshaped. Of the planes left flying, many are nearly empty, and I can't remember the last time traffic was even a topic.
The evening news is just awful.
I look at the cruise sites with almost a mystic disconnect, not quite understanding most of the things that were.

Perhaps cruising is in our future, in a better time, once the world has recovered, somewhat.
One thing rings true. It will never be quite the same.
Stay safe.
