Cruise Ship Locations - During the cruise ship ban of 2020


Recommended Posts

Typhoon season is all year in that part of North Pacific.  They would get ample warning to hi-tail it out of Manila Bay.

 

One CCL boss has said China maybe the first area to restart cruising.  He was not sure where the cruise would go.

A question for the knowledgeable. How many crew would be on board while laid up, presumably for maintenance. I would assume the executive crew would be sent home. Yes/no?

I think I read 100 on another thread.  Would that be too many?

Crew onboard during a layup could be as low as 1 between a group of vessels together.

Sort of caretaker.   This happens when the owners weld up the doors & no machinery is running.

Cruise ships would have more as there maybe some work going on & our ch.eng. said they would keep the AC running, otherwise mould would become a real problem.

Again every layup is different & it depends on what the owners are thinking for the future.

The 100 crew number was for a warm layup where the ship would be back in operation in a few months.

Some of the ships may never go back into operation.  Then either sold or scrap.

I wonder how many are for the scrap heap, I suspect most would be returning to service with another line if they were surplus to requirements.

If there are bargains to be had, I think there will be buyers for some of the smaller ships surplus to requirements.  The Renaissance ships are still cruising under different cruise lines.

They sat empty for over a year before anything happened to them .6 were tied up in Gibraltar and 2 were at Papeete .
