Great pictures.

Thanks for posting.

Yes, really great. She may be the only cruise ship in the world that is still sailing with guests.   Travel save.

I am so sad looking at these pictures. I was so looking forward to my cruise on her June 26 from Copenhagen but I seriously doubt that cruise will go. Those of you onboard enjoy your last few great meals.

No, there are quite a few others.  Equinox, Azamara Pursuit;  Not sure if Hanseatic Nature (Hapag-Lloyd) still have guests, but they will be transiting the canal next week.  Arcadia on her world cruise, with itinerary reworked multiple times, looks like she will cross the Indian Ocean, make a tech stop at Durban, then on to Southampton, 5 weeks with no port calls!  Two CMV ships:

Sorry, it is Eclipse, not Equinox.  Princess world cruise terminated in Freemantle (Pacific Princess) is returning to US with a few passengers still onboard who cannot fly.  EM

O.K.  I stand corrected.   Still so sad to see what has happened to the cruise industry and all of us.

Then there are the 2 Silversea ships "floating" around as nobody wants them; MSC just left Barbados as seen in pictures from album, etc, etc

That is absolutely hilarious!!!!! We loved the food on Marina in December but I can cook as well or better as I'm sure many can. 🙂

I tell ya it will be a long, long time before I'd be cruising. Do you suppose all these countries are going to put something in writing when they're reopening?

Because so many are dependent on tourism for their livelihoods, I am certain they will.

Doesn't sound they did when closing ports. Sounds like ships showed up and were denied. I'm more and more thinking one to two years.

Who knows?  Hopefully in the next six months, scientists worldwide will find out a great deal more about COVID-19 reoccurrence possibilities, effective treatment possibilities, vaccine possibilities, etc. so that more educated/informed decisions can be made.

 I hope the same. And then tack on another six months or a year.
