  1. From MSN News and this financial website today, they had this headline: “Buy Norwegian Cruise Line, Sell Carnival?” with these highlights: “They say that a rising tide lifts all ships, but once again it seems as if the same can't be said about cruise line stocks. Citi analyst James Ainley is kicking off the new trading week by initiating coverage of Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings with a bullish buy rating, just as he's downgrading shares of larger rival Carnival. Ainley feels that Norwegian Cruise Line is better positioned to cash in on where the recovery stands for one of the hardest-hit niches of the travel industry. He feels that the recovery is favoring premium cruise lines given industry pricing trends heading into next summer. Carnival operates some high-end cruise lines, but its namesake brand is priced aggressively as the mass-market leader of the cruising industry. Carnival's flagship brand is often the haven for first-time cruisers and folks looking for the best deals in affordable cruising. Norwegian Cruise Line and Royal Caribbean tend to land slightly higher on the pricing spectrum.” Here is more from this analysis: "There's no denying that the cruising industry has had a challenging restart process. Plans to start sailing again this summer that seemed so ambitious earlier this year proved problematic as the peak travel season played out. However, after a brutal 2020 for the industry, one would think that the three cruise line stocks would be beneficiaries of pandemic-tackling vaccinations that became widely available in 2021. It hasn't worked out that way, and all but Royal Caribbean have been treading water in terms of year-to-date shareholder gains. Royal Caribbean is up 13.3% this year. Carnival stock climbed 2.9% in 2021. Norwegian Cruise Line has inched 0.2% higher. Royal Caribbean was the top gainer last year, too. The climate is getting kinder. Regulatory hurdles have been largely cleared now. International travel restrictions are starting to ease as global vaccination rates improve and active COVID-19 case counts recede. It's not necessarily smooth sailing for the cruise line stocks. We've seen some false starts in the pandemic's recovery process. However, next summer will likely be far kinder to the industry than this deficit-saddled year. The water may still be rough, but the long-term prospects for all three cruise lines are promising."

  2. Appreciate this cute, above quote and positive follow-up from our Ohio neighbor. YES, the future is a significant question that will yield an interesting/challenging path forward for the cruise lines. How will that future appear and be? From the Wall Street Journal late last week, they had this headline: “Trio Of Sustainable Power Sources To Drive Royal Caribbean Group's Next Class Of Ships Into The Future” with these highlights: “The cruise industry's first hybrid powered ship is set to debut summer 2023 as part of Royal Caribbean Group's ultra-luxury brand Silversea Cruises. The new class of ships, known as 'Project Evolution,' will operate using a trio of power sources including a fuel cell system, battery technology and dual fuel engines using liquefied natural gas (LNG) as the main fuel. This hybrid solution, using fuel cell technology, allows the ship to be free of local emissions while at port -- another industry first. The new hybrid technology not only helps in port, but also allows Project Evolution to achieve a 40% overall reduction in its greenhouse gas emissions per double occupancy when compared to the brand's previous class of ships. To learn more about Royal Caribbean Group's sustainability efforts, visit https://sustainability.rclcorporate.com/.” Interesting announcement by the Silversea corporate ownership. Nice to know that Silversea will be the first with this advanced technology. Reactions and comments?

  3. From the Wall Street Journal late last week, they had this headline: “Royal Caribbean Group to hold conference call on business update and third quarter financial results” with these highlights: “Royal Caribbean Group has scheduled a conference call for 10:00 a.m. Eastern Time, Friday, October 29, 2021, to provide a business update and discuss third quarter 2021 financial results. The call will be available on-line at the company's investor relations website, www.rclinvestor.com. To listen to the call by phone, please dial (833) 608-1479 in the US and Canada.

  6. Appreciate the very good comments and follow-ups from Catlover54 and our Ohio-based rkacruiser. It is good to hear of the various medical advances that are . . . slowly . . . digging us out of this current situation. From CNBC cable business news Tuesday, they had this headline: “Norwegian Cruise Line set to launch full fleet by April for first time since pandemic no-sail orders, CEO says” with these highlights: “Norwegian Cruise Lines currently has eight ships in service across its three brands. The cruise line’s full fleet of 28 ships will resume service by April 1, CEO Frank Del Rio said Tuesday. A majority, 75%, of the company’s vessels will return to regular operations by the end of the year, he said. 'If anything, the world is opening up, more people are getting vaccinated,' Del Rio told CNBC. 'Pent-up demand continues to be very, very strong for the sailings we’ve operated thus far.' Despite the cruise line’s stringent vaccine protocols, Del Rio said Covid booster shots are not yet required for passengers and employees. But he said Norwegian could either mandate boosters if the pandemic worsens or adjust the company’s existing vaccine guidelines as the pandemic wanes and more people immunize against the virus.” Great little point/question by Del Rio about booster shots. When will that be required, especially as so many around the world have not even had their first shots. Lots of serious issues and questions still be answered before we are back to "normal"??!!

  7. Below is the latest for how the financial world views the three major cruise ship companies. The general trend? Downward!! As an example for Royal Caribbean, they move from a Monday opening at $92.77 and then shifted down during the week to $87.73 at Friday afternoon's close of business. Not sure why. Any good and smart guesses?

  8. Great comments and follow-ups from rkacruiser in Ohio and our Maine friend. Good luck with those four cruise between now and May. From a writer at the Miami Herald and in a Maine newspaper this morning, they had this headline: “Cruises are back, but they may not see pre-pandemic passenger numbers until 2023" with this sub-headline: "The industry saw 28.5 million passengers worldwide in 2018 and 29.7 million in 2019, but dropped off to just 5.8 million in 2020, an 81% decrease.” Here are some of the story highlights: “The cruise industry may not return to prepandemic passenger numbers until 2023, according to an industry consultant speaking at Seatrade — the world’s largest business-to-business cruise conference which took place in Miami Beach last week. 'It’s all very encouraging, but I don’t really see until next year that we’ll get significant increases (in passengers),' said David Selby, the owner of Travelyields Ltd., a consulting firm that specializes in cruises, speaking at the conference via video call from the UK. 'I don’t see us getting back to 2019 levels until 2023, or possibly longer,' he said, adding that, 'only time will tell.' 'All depends on if, heaven forbid, there are new variants,' he warned. The industry saw 28.5 million passengers worldwide in 2018 and 29.7 million in 2019, but dropped off to just 5.8 million in 2020, an 81% decrease. Before the pandemic, Selby’s Travelyields had predicted 32 million global cruise passengers in 2020, a 6.7% increase. Miami’s cruise operators suspended voyages on March 13, 2020, as the coronavirus pandemic was rapidly spreading throughout the world. The industry has slowly restarted at reduced capacity and with COVID-19 mitigation protocols.” Full story at: https://www.pressherald.com/2021/10/04/cruises-are-back-but-they-may-not-see-prepandemic-passenger-numbers-until-2023/ THANKS!

  9. Appreciate ALL of these great, fun comments, sharing and follow-ups from bennybear, Hank, cruisemom42, HostBonjour, etc. Keep it coming!! From the New York Times this afternoon, they had this headline: “Venice, Overwhelmed by Tourists, Tries Tracking Them" with this sub-headline: "Can cellphone data and surveillance cameras help restore the city’s old-world charm, or just destroy what magic remains?” Here are some of their story highlights: “As the pandemic chased away visitors, some Venetians allowed themselves to dream of a different city — one that belonged as much to them as to the tourists who crowd them out of their stone piazzas, cobblestone alleyways and even their apartments. In a quieted city, the chiming of its 100 bell towers, the lapping of canal waters and the Venetian dialect suddenly became the dominant soundtrack. The cruise ships that disgorged thousands of day-trippers and caused damaging waves in the sinking city were gone, and then banned. But now, the city’s mayor is taking crowd control to a new level, pushing high-tech solutions that alarm even many of those who have long campaigned for a Venice for Venetians. Many Venetians are frustrated having to travel to the mainland to buy undershirts because souvenir shops selling fake Murano glass have driven out businesses catering to locals.” Here is more from their story today: "The city’s leaders are acquiring the cellphone data of unwitting tourists and using hundreds of surveillance cameras to monitor visitors and prevent crowding. Next summer, they plan to install long-debated gates at key entry points; visitors coming only for the day will have to book ahead and pay a fee to enter. If too many people want to come, some will be turned away. The conservative and business-friendly mayor, Luigi Brugnaro, and his allies say their aim is to create a more livable city for beleaguered Venetians. 'Either we are pragmatic, or we live in the world of fairy tales,' said Paolo Bettio, who heads Venis, the company that handles the city’s information technology. But many residents see the plans to monitor, and control, people’s movements as dystopian — and either a publicity stunt or a way to attract wealthier tourists, who might be discouraged from coming by the crowds."

  10. What kind of travel and cruise adventures do we desire for the future? For us, just "Floating on a Boat" is not good enough. We want more than just being pampered on the ship. Unique destinations are vital for us on our wish list. Your priorities? From super experienced travel writer Gene Sloan and MSN News three days ago, they had this headline: “Luxury cruise lines eye customers who want to travel in a ‘more purposeful way’ ” with these highlights: “Get ready for even more luxury cruises that are as much about getting access to unique and transformational experiences as they are about pampering. So said several of the luxury cruise world’s leading executives Wednesday at Seatrade Cruise Global, the cruise industry’s annual meetup in Miami. 'The idea behind luxury is changing where people want to travel far and away, but they want to sculpt themselves into the environment, whether it’s in the classical world or whether it’s in the remotest parts of the world,' Navin Sawhney, the CEO for the Americas at small-ship specialist Ponant, said during a panel discussion on luxury cruising at the event. 'They want to do that in a way that is traveling with greater intent, and ultimately it’s so they can come back with a change, with a transformation without transforming where they visited,' Sawhney added. Sawhney said one of the most important aspects of how luxury travel was changing was that 'people want to travel in a more purposeful way … they want to have the deeper connection with the destinations that they visit.' ” Much like with Silversea's wide range of unique options and ports, this background was shared: "A specialist in cruises on small, upscale 'expedition' ships that are designed to travel to remote and hard-to-reach parts of the world such as Antarctica and the Arctic, Ponant has been expanding fast in recent years to meet the growing demand for such trips. As Sawhney noted, the market for cruises on such vessels and small ships in general has been growing significantly for more than a decade. Chris Austin, chief sales officer for the US at Explora Journeys said the luxury customer increasingly is looking for a 'journey' when they cruise that is 'far more than just a mode of transportation. It’s a journey of exploration. It’s a journey of discovery. It’s a journey of their own personal mind, and [it’s] actually collecting those wonderful experiences, getting to know themselves even more, getting to know those around them.' Luxury travelers want to see destinations 'slower and deeper' than in the past, Austin added."

  11. Are higher-end cruise ships with vaccine requirements having any Covid infection challenges? From the New York Post yesterday, they had this headline: “Five passengers on first post-COVID cruise from NYC test positive” with these highlights: “At least five passengers on the first cruise out of New York City since the COVID-19 pandemic began have tested positive for the virus. The passengers were aboard the Crystal Symphony, en route to Bermuda, when their PCR tests came back positive, according to Crystal Cruises. The COVID-positive were transferred to quarantine hotels on Bermuda. The passengers and ship were then subjected to quarantine and retesting on the ship. The 781-foot vessel can carry 848 passengers, according to the company, which wouldn’t say how many were aboard. All guests were required to be vaccinated to board the cruise. They departed Sept. 24 from Manhattan’s Pier 88. The ship returned to New York on Friday — before turning around for another trip to Bermuda’s Royal Naval Dockyard.” We did our second cruise on the Crystal Symphony in July 2008, exploring the Baltics and Russia. Great experience!! But, five passengers being pulled off for quarantine in Bermuda would not be fun or desired. Right or wrong? Wish that Crystal had been more honest by revealing the net number of passengers on this first cruise from New York City. Then, you can judge the impact of this sailing infection.

  12. While most cruise line have been requiring passengers and staff to be vaccinated, now there are questions as to which specific vaccines are effective and good enough for use and acceptance. . From the Washington Post this past week, they had this headline: “New U.S. travel rules close door on those fully vaccinated with Russia’s Sputnik V” with these highlights: “The United States announced last week that it would soon open its doors to foreign travelers vaccinated against the coronavirus, loosening restrictions for broad swaths of global visitors for the first time since the pandemic began. But the new rules, set to take effect in November, appear to also shut out many people who consider themselves to be fully immunized — including millions who have received two doses of Russia’s Sputnik V vaccine. Hundreds of thousands of Russians could be directly affected. Despite frosty diplomatic relations and limited demand for international travel, roughly 300,000 Russians visited the United States in 2019. More broadly, the U.S. plan is another blow for the manufacturers of Sputnik V, which Moscow has proudly proclaimed as the first coronavirus vaccine to be registered for use. Though the vaccine was intended to be a powerful tool of pandemic diplomacy, its limited acceptance abroad and slow rates of delivery have left it behind not only Western vaccines but also those made by Chinese manufacturers. The new U.S. plan requires that most noncitizens seeking entry to the United States are vaccinated with shots approved for emergency use either by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration or the World Health Organization. The new U.S. rules will not only affect Russians. According to data from the Global Health Innovation Center at Duke University, some 448 million Sputnik V doses have been purchased worldwide, with many going to low-income nations.” Full story at: https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/2021/09/27/us-travellers-sputnik-russia/ THANKS!

  13. From Travel+Leisure and Yahoo News last week, they had this headline: “Norwegian Cruise Line CEO Talks COVID-19 Protocol, Family Travel, and the Future of Cruising” with these highlights: “Norwegian Cruise Line CEO Talks COVID-19 Protocol, Family Travel, and the Future of Cruising Norwegian Cruise Line's president expects things to feel normal again by the second or third quarter of next year — but still has a positive outlook for the future of cruising. 'Every day, every week should be a little better than the week before,' Harry Sommer, the president and CEO of Norwegian Cruise Line, said in an interview with Cruise Critic ahead of the launch of the Norwegian Breakaway, the first major cruise ship to sail from New York City since the pandemic. Sommer said there have been highs and lows as Norwegian saw a decrease in bookings as the number of COVID-19 cases increased, but saw an increase in bookings after the U.S. announced it would lift travel restrictions on vaccinated foreign visitors in November.” Here is more as to this top executive's views the cruising future and timing: " 'We're in no rush. Our main goal now is to get our ships up and running,' he said. 'We're happy to have reduced occupancies so that we can provide an excellent product, with social distance, no crowding, no lines anywhere. Norwegian first started sailing in Europe in July with trips out of Athens. Now, the company is sailing from Miami, Seattle, and New York in the United States, having won a court battle defending its vaccination policy, one of the strictest in the industry. Looking ahead, Sommer said he's hopeful younger children will be able to get vaccinated soon, paving the way for family cruises over the holidays." Reactions? Many on Silversea do not care about younger children being able to sail. Clearly this re-start is taking more time and patience. His comments seem to reflect that need to take the required time before "normal" can be happening and here. .

  14. From this financial news website and MSN New today, they had this headline: “Why Carnival, Royal Caribbean, and Norwegian Cruise Line Stocks All Just Jumped”. YES, this might explain this stock market jump. Great, quick follow-up by RetiredandTravel. Here are their story highlights: “You can thank pharmaceutical giant Merck. This morning, drugmaker Merck announced that its anti-Covid pill molnupiravir has proven effective at cutting the rate of hospitalization and death from Covid by 'approximately 50%' in a Phase 3 clinical trial. And that's only the headline revelation. Read a little deeper into the report, and you'll learn that while a few patients involved in the trial were hospitalized, precisely zero patients treated with molnupiravir died over the 29 days of testing. True, in this trial molnupiravir was given only to 'non-hospitalized adult patients with mild-to-moderate COVID-19,' but if you are considering these data from the perspective of a potential cruise line customer, here's how things probably look: If I get on a cruise and suddenly come down with a fever and, taking a test, discover that I've just contracted Covid and am in the early stages of the disease (i.e., still 'mild-to-moderate' symptoms), then it sure sounds like Merck has a pill that can stop Covid in its tracks. It might even eliminate the risk of dying from Covid entirely. Now, do you think that news like that might make you feel a bit more comfortable about signing up to take a 'Carnival cruise' -- or a cruise with Royal Caribbean or Norwegian, for that matter? I think it might. While Merck's pill isn't approved for general consumption yet, the fact that 'Merck plans to submit an application for Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) to the U.S. FDA as soon as possible based on these findings' suggests that in the foreseeable future, cruise lines could finally see demand for their services return to something approaching normal once again.” Full story at: https://www.msn.com/en-us/money/savingandinvesting/why-carnival-royal-caribbean-and-norwegian-cruise-line-stocks-all-just-jumped/ar-AAP2NFV?ocid=BingNewsSearch THANKS!
