Deadhead or reschedule

Recommended Posts

Assuming there's going to be a cruise season in Europe, they need to get the ships over to Europe. Do you all think it's more likely they'll sail empty or just reschedule the TAs?

Who knows?  You have your answer.  50% say deadhead.  50% say reschedule.

 

I understand the drive for information - but there isn't any.  We will find out when we find out.

Got it. One positive, one negative and one critical.

I was looking for opinions.

No rush to get ships to Europe. Not a lot of ports open for the scheduled season.

I do not have a crystal ball or one of those fancy magical 8-balls; but my predication is that the EU season is either out or delayed until at the very earliest July (and that would be a best case scenario).

First Europe cruise sets sail...July 4th. Because America never gives up!

If the "no sail" date is extended for another month then I think they will go over empty and sit in a commercial port likely in Italy somewhere until it's likely that cruises can start up again. The season lasts until September?  There's no point in keeping them in the US now that the US looks like it's going to catch up to Europe and Europe hopefully will be peaking then waning first. I posted on the other thread that cruises will not be cancelled by Celebrity until after final payment date for each cruise. They have no need to call a cancel early. 
 

Strangely, this issue isn't about the US.

No point coming here, nowhere to go and we, according to our government, are running four weeks behind Italy. Those over seventy are being told to prepare to self-isolate for 12 weeks.

Yep, this takes us to mid-June. Still hoping for the best for our ex Southampton cruise  in late September though!

Absolutely.  A balance - but for a perfect balance.... lets also think of the crew and land based families who are loosing livlihood and buinesses.
