  1. Assuming the CDC doesn't kill cruising out of the USA entirely - something I think is a real possibility to consider - I think we may have seen the last of the huge ships delivered. My thinking is this: Destinations are going to limit the number of ships docking for a day and the number of people allowed to visit from them. Thus, a ship with four or six thousand passengers may find no where to visit. The destinations have found they like not having hordes of people clogging up their venues.

The smiling cabin Stewart, the smiling friendly folks all over the providing great service, the Cleanliness, & the motion of the ship... Great Entertainment! Great Relaxation! Not a dish to wash or bed to make! Just got out cancellation of our TA cruise from Rome in October. 😭
