Pretty amazing to see 4 functional cruise ships being destroyed. 
2020 the year with no surprises! 

Probably a function of being too inefficient fuel wise and environmentally.

They worked just fine in January and were being sold for the next two years. 
This is a function of a pandemic and feeling that keeping them alive Was not worth the fruit of waiting for the world to be cured of it. It’s basically waving a white flag to the virus. 
This is why it’s so sad.

Carnival Fantasy was our first cruise, in 1991. We decided after that to focus on land trips, but returned to cruising in 2006.

Since then we've cruised 2-3 times per year, moving up to newer and larger ships. We cruised on Monarch twice and enjoyed those cruises, but I'm glad we've had a chance to sail many of the Voyager, Freedom, Quantum and Oasis class ships.


We were looking forward to our May 2020 Baltic cruise from Amsterdam, but we'll see what happens for next year.

I'm a major planner, usually 2 years in advance, but I haven't booked a replacement cruise yet.  Oh, well, we'll see what the new year brings. Meanwhile, we still are healthy and grateful for that.

So what's worse for you?


The horrific situation in Beirut even killed this cruise ship crew.  😪


"The Orient Queen cruise ship capsized overnight in Beirut, taking on water at her berth following a deadly blast in Lebanon on Tuesday evening.


The explosion also claimed the head office of the ship's operator, Abou Merhi Cruises, as well as the entire Abou Merhi Group.


Two crew are reported dead while seven are listed in critical condition"
