  1. Not all of them. There are minimum safe manning requirements for operation of the ship -- without passengers. The addition of passengers requires additional essential crew in the deck and engine departments well before they get down the list to the the entertainment folks.
  2. So much for that April 2020 restart, amirite?
  3. None of that was part of the original booking contract. This is some crap the cruise lines made up to cope financially with the shut down. It's amazing to me that people come on here and defend NCL when posters share their experiences with their credit card companies and charge backs. Why do you care? Pax of cancelled cruises are entitled to a refund. FCC is not a refund. Forcing customers to play silly games with clicking links and meeting artificial deadlines are also not a refund.

  5. The protective measures are not massively difficult to deal with. The people required to actually perform the protective measures are proving to be massively difficult to deal with.
  6. It's exactly as we thought... for anyone who bothered to read the Princess announcement anyway... https://www.princess.com/news/notices_and_advisories/notices/global-ship-operations-pause-december-2020.html All cruises sailing in and out of Australia on Majestic Princess, Regal Princess, Sapphire Princess, Sea Princess, and Sun Princess through October 31, 2020 All sailings in Asia, Caribbean, California Coast, Hawaii, Mexico, Panama Canal, South America & Antarctica, Japan, and Tahiti/South Pacific through December 15, 2020 Not at all confusing.
  7. I know you're being funny (I hope) but the CDC order would prohibit that activity, of course.
  8. Are you rich? 1%? Politician? Then you will not be first.
  9. Read the order. The authority of law under which the order is issued is indicated in the title block. https://www.cdc.gov/quarantine/pdf/No-Sail-Order-Cruise-Ships-Second-Extension_07_16_2020-p.pdf

    But still cater to American tourists? The same Americans whose Covid infections are spiraling out of control? Put them on a ship and pretend the problem doesn't exist? Then drop them off daily at ports of call all up and down the coast? The cruise lines can just hide the numbers. Hospitals don't have to report to the CDC any longer... why should the ships?? Great plan.
  11. I guess I'm used to "obstructed" meaning life boats, pillars, and the like. Thanks.
