  1. Forget the heat killing the virus, humans would die from the heat needed to kill the virus first! Here in Florida the infections have gone sky high in the summer!
  2. Terrible here in Florida, state government dong an awful job with this virus! And too many people didn't take this virus seriously! Driving around Florida there is no social distancing, maybe 50% wearing masks, and no enforcement where masks are required! Results are record high infections, and rising deaths! Now the governor wants to open schools in August, followed by the Labor Day holiday! Florida gonna be renamed to 'Virusland'!
  3. Open for the most part Floridians and crazy out of staters! Have to wear a mask in 110+ humid heat,,, not fun! Then some states require quarantine leaving Florida! Likely Disney will shut down again sooner then later!
  4. Actually there are quite a few counties at or near capacity of ICU beds already, and the State government wants to open the schools in August, followed by the Labor Day holiday, things not looking good at all!
  5. The virus exploding in Florida now! Driving around Florida this past weekend, it seems like only about 50% were wearing masks so the virus will likely get even worse when they plan to reopen schools in August, followed by the Labor Day holidays! I'd say its likely there will be no cruising this year, and maybe none til the summer of 2021!
  6. We're booked on a Transatlantic in Jan and in March, already told my wife this won't be happening! None of these countries are gonna let us port cause they're likely gonna be in trouble with their own people this winter! They're not gonna want to see a ship of 3000+ showing up! Then what do we do if we get off, and can't get back on for the trip back because of isolation? Comes a point where you just walk away from the mess, let the dust settle, and see what's left when this is all over! I just don't see any possibility of cruising returning to normal before the fall of 20
  7. I would think MSC is in the best position as they are a private company that owns a big shipping company that's still doing well! Agree on the other in a world of hurt!
  8. But it isn't just them,,, This isn't like a financial decision, where if you mess up, its you only who suffers! With a virus like this, your decision can affect others, even cost them their lives! Do we then make you responsible? Its great to be,,, I'll do what I want,,,,, as long as you don't negatively affect others! Seems like too many want that freedom without the responsibility that comes with their affecting other negatively!
  9. Lots of luck to them, with the recent surge in infections here in Florida, the joke going around is, renaming the state to 'VIRUSLAND'! 😷=picture on our flag Come here for a vacation and leave with a 'friend' to take home!😉
  10. We're on transatlantic's in Jan, and March, already told my wife, we got little to no chance of that happening! Its just too much for the world to get everyone to agree right now with testing, distancing, wearing masks, what to do with people testing positive on the ship, excursions, port entries allowed, etc..!
  11. Agree with much of what you said, driving around yesterday in the Tampa Bay area, everything seemed back to normal, everything open, no one distancing, and few wearing masks! This is why or infections have skyrocketed higher then at any time! Are they doing more testing, yea but not at the amount the infections are going up! And besides, more testing could have shown less new infections! But it didn't, it revealed a lot more new infections!
  12. Exactly, and lawsuits would follow, and all cruising would shut down again! My 2 cents, not worth more,,,🙂 We're in a virus pandemic, testing is at best 70% accurate, there is no safe treatment beyond hoping your body will overcome the virus, and there is no vaccine! Temp checks are a joke! Whether you think the virus is no big deal doesn't matter, cause the financial/business end is what's making decisions here, and the cruise industry can't afford another debacle like this winter/spring was! Carnival is fighting off lawsuits now for this! We love cruising, but just d
  13. As far as status, don't think so, a few board members will be fired, but life will go on!
  14. And those mentioning bankruptcies, if Carnival ever went bankrupt, it would be a chapter 11 reorganization, where they'd survive, and come back with the same name, not much would change! Not all debt is paid off in bankruptcy!
