  1. Extremely unlikely that once all this is over CCL or RCCL are going to be in any position to take on more debt. Nor would the banks be interested in owning or getting rid of NCL assets at fire sale prices (and who would be in a position to buy anyway?). Most likely debt is reorganized (with or without bankruptcy) and NCL continues to operate as NCL. Shareholders may or may not get wiped out in the process.
  2. Trump vows to help cruise lines: https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2020-03-10/trump-says-u-s-to-help-cruise-lines-airlines-as-virus-spreads CCL, NCL and RCL stocks all rebounding after this announcement. We'll see if it holds.
  3. In 2012, an estimated 8.6 million chronic cases were active. In 2010, 8.8 million new cases of TB were diagnosed, and 1.20–1.45 million deaths occurred, most of these occurring in developing countries (as per the W.H.O.)
  4. I agree, except that once it's everywhere, what's the point of shutting down flights, cruises and border crossings? The opportunity to contain has passed.
  5. Yes, I would hope they would cancel before final payments become due on any of the cruises that are changed. We'll see.
  6. We have a Millennium cruise to Japan and China booked for November 2020. While that's still our preferred trip, we have just booked a back up trip to the Mediterranean just in case. I have no issue going to Asia if Celebrity returns this year, but I would also have to think that they will probably err on the side of caution when it comes to booking ports and deciding if people will return to the area so soon. My guess is that they will cancel the Asia itineraries by July, if not sooner.
  7. In the following post you can see them lifting and welding plates into place before wrapping it with tarps.
  8. You are allowed 1 bottle each without corkage fee (although you cannot bring these to the dining room) and as many bottles you would like with a $15 per bottle fee that can be brought to dining. There will be a table set up past security to pay corkage where they will apply a sticker to your additional wine so that dining room staff know that corkage has been paid.
  9. Our local airport (Calgary, Canada YYC) has a coat check for winter coats, but it's $2 a day. Not sure I'd pay that over a week or more.
  10. Looking at a 2020 Asia cruise aboard the Quantum of the Seas. When I get to the dining choice in the booking process, I'm given two options: Cosmopolitan Dining or a blank option (which I can check). Cosmopolitan dining is described as "Cosmopolitan Dining lets you choose between two dining times and sit on a first come, first serve basis in any of our main restaurants." So I have to show up at either 5:30 or 8:00? Can I get a table for 2? Has anyone had this and how did it work for you. Also, any idea what the unlabeled choice is? Here's a screenshot:
  11. Looking at a 12 day Asia cruise in OV room. When I add 'Reduced or Free Air', the price gets a tad high. For $1.3 million each, is it at least First Class?
  12. Just got back from a week on the Preziosa Northern Europe cruise out of Southampton. Went to Guest Services the first night with our paperwork and had vouchers in our cabin within a couple of hours.
  13. Just checked the Oct 2020 cruise on the Canadian site again and now it is showing all the same room avails as the American site. Price with exchange works out to be almost exactly the same.
  14. Comparing a Mediterranean cruise we've booked for Oct 2020 - Both the US and UK sites show Bella and Fantastica balcony rooms available, Canadian site shows only Aurea rooms at $1300 more than what we paid. If MSC doesn't get this fixed, or allow us to book on the US site, we won't be cruising MSC in the future.
