  1. Copy of my post from the Magnifica thread: I just listened to a radio interview with a German travel journalist who is on board the MSC Magnifica off Fremantle (I believe it was recorded on Friday). Apparently the plan is for supplies etc they have ordered in Fremantle to be transported to them at the anchorage and then they will head to Europe via the Suez canal (where the plan is for Magnifica to take the place of one of the MSC cargo ships for the transit). He thinks they will probably also bunker at Suez. Where in Europe they can land is at this stage seemingly unclear and probably will depend on the situation at the time. He expects it will take 15-16 days to get there. Just checked MarineTraffic and she has now departed from her WA anchorage

  3. I have just received the first text msg from the government: Coronavirus Aus Gov msg: To stop the spread, stay 1.5m from others, follow rules on social gatherings, wash hands, stay home if sick. aus.gov.au
  4. Surely these days it can only be a round NSW drive ??? I also had just an online order of 'medicine' delivered. I put on some latex gloves and wiped every bottle down with disinfectant wipes - better to be sure ...
  5. Thanks for the update Rob. Good to know you made it home safely. Thank you for keeping all of us here on land that were following the cruise informed. Take care and stay safe!
  6. Thanks for the update - good to hear you all got back to Oz safely.
  7. Angela Merkel was in close contact with an infected doctor but apparently the two tests she had over the last couple of days were both negative and she is in self isolation at home.
  8. According to Wikipedia, Rottnest gets around 500 000 annual visitors with "up to 15000 visitors at a time during peak periods". And you would think that the WA government are sure that they can safely house the number of pax from the Vasco da Gama there. There was talk of using Rottnest as a quarantine facility already several days ago.
  9. And I found that cruisemapper also shows those that come up on marinetraffic as "out of range" - unless you have a paid marinetraffic subscription, which I don't. (Found that handy as I was following Norwegian Jewel on her way to Honolulu).
