  1. https://www.miamiherald.com/news/business/tourism-cruises/article248421205.html
  2. CCL has said that they have enough cash to stay in business for another cruiseless year. https://www.miamiherald.com/news/business/tourism-cruises/article248421205.html
  3. Just my 2 cents (and worth every penny you paid)..... I think New Zealand really lends itself better to a land vacation. I'd cruise Australia and then, funds/time allowing, fly to New Zealand for a driving excursion.
  4. I'm not sure I should renew my Chase Sapphire Reserve credit card. It has a very high annual fee and I'm not sure I will have enough (any?) travel expenses in 2021 to offset this fee. I'm wondering what others, who don't foresee much traveling in 2021, are doing about renewing high fee travel cards. Thoughts?
  5. Interesting, however there may be a downside to this too. By testing every passenger every day they are increasing the probability that they will experience a false positive.
  6. Yeah communication has been an ongoing problem. I remember reading that when the CDC limited the length of cruises, some cruise lines stopped new bookings on longer cruises but didn't cancel them yet. This may explain why you were told that the cruise was sold out.
  7. My guess is 2H 2022, unless there is such a spike in demand that pricing and/or availability preclude it. I'm pretty sure this may well be the case, in which case, I'll have to wait a little longer.
  8. "Passengers are quarantined in their cabin while the ship heads back to Barbados. Once it gets there, it's likely that the island's public health agency will take control of the situation, with retests and possible quarantine." Well, it seems we will get our first look at how passengers aboard a Covid ship are handled once they return to port.

    That's one solution I guess, but I've never believed one should self-censor viewpoints with which one disagrees - although that seems to be quite the thing these days.

    I get so tired of hearing people tout their City/State/Country's response to the virus. It's just a matter of timing. Sooner or later the virus does what viruses do. In the case of Germany, the daily infection rate has soared - far outpacing the initial wave https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/country/germany/ The German government is imposing new restrictions and some Germans are protesting those restrictions. In short, Germany looks a lot like most other countries.
  11. All valid points. Now can you see any shortcomings in relying on other people wearing masks for you protection?
  12. I'll be interested to see as well. I've read that even Venice is clamoring for tourism to return. Tourists are PITA until they disappear.

    I'm glad the CDC changed approach (Whitehouse influence?) and stopped banning cruising and instead started telling cruise lines what they needed to do in order to resume cruising.
  14. No. All you can say is that daily deaths were falling in Sweden while rising dramatically elsewhere.
