  1. I read that room stewards on average earn $900 per month including gratuities.Waiters earn around $1800 per month while bartenders earn $2800 per month, which can go up to even $4000/ month in the main season, due to a lot of tipping on booze Cruises
  2. Kindly tell me 1. How are the obstructed view balconies right in front (facing forward) on the higher decks? 2. How many days prior to sailing is the final payment date? 3. What are the chances of a last minute price drop on Regal Princess after this final payment date? Especially for Cruises later this year.

  9. What about the other Carnival ships of the 90s
  10. But in the long run, once a vaccine is available or the virus is controlled; they will go back to 100 % capacity and then have the funds required to pay off the interest on the loans. They may never repay the principal or keep rolling it over. I am glad they found investors willing to lend them money, that too a huge 6.25 billion dollars!

  12. Carnival said it is seeing demand for voyages in 2021, with the majority of bookings being new and not from rescheduling, and will restart voyages from Germany in August. The company also said on a conference call that it can be cash flow break even at a capacity between 30% and 50%"
  13. The Cruise lines will avoid bankruptcy at any cost. they will survive, at least the big 3-- MSC, Royal Caribbean and Carnival. Small Cruise lines have already closed down and a few more may follow. The economy is already recovering and the worst is behind us already.
  14. My 6 year old would even refuse to sleep in another cabin, even if there was a connecting door.
  15. I would prefer my child or children below 12 years to stay with me in the same cabin, because even if I book another cabin for them they will any way be in my room all the time. But a mother knows best what is best for her family
