  1. I am guessing my refund will be a long time in coming from Crystal if ever. Cancelled two weeks ago and not a peep from them. I could use back my money right about now, I need it more than they do!
  2. Given the lack of cash flow, ships still at sea, and costs: you can bet giving back money is the least priority for any cruise line.
  3. I am also dealing with Ponant (worse) and Crystal (same non responsive). I doubt I will see my refunds anytime soon if at all.
  4. Class certification would be a cinch in this case. The only issue would be whether foreign corps can be sued in the USA or not. Another reason why the cruise lines deserve not a penny in bail out.
  5. Where exactly would they cruise too? China? And remember it is now Fall in the Southern hemisphere and temperatures are dropping which supposedly spread COVID 19.
  6. America has a national martime academy and six state maritime academies; we can staff and man any cruise ship.

  8. Because they are profiteers. They won't flag USA and even made the QM2 take down the Union Jack to save money.
  9. There are going to be massive inquests as to the cruise industry in general. Ponant has been lucky to avoid thse nightmares that continue to unfold but I would question business at usual resuming this Summer: https://www.cnbc.com/2020/03/27/four-dead-on-carnival-cruise-ship-amid-new-coronavirus-outbreak-aboard.html
  10. A nightmare scenario is developing, look at this ongoing horror at sea: https://www.cnbc.com/2020/03/27/four-dead-on-carnival-cruise-ship-amid-new-coronavirus-outbreak-aboard.html
  11. You do understand there is a pandemic? That ship cannot even be cleared to dock anywhere.
  12. Very tragic but it was preventable. Why did the fools keep operating after it was evident where this was going? Those ships should have been in port by March 10 or earlier.
  13. Not easy? Big class action firms sue much bigger fish than Carnival and win and in this case people have died.
  14. It is becoming evident consumers will demand changes. Buffets, outdated ventilation systems, cramped unsanitary conditions, and cancellation policies are all going to change. Ships will need to retrofit to meet these trends and that requires more capital on top of likely zero revenue for the next six months. If the cruise lines don't do this, next norovirus outbreak will be hyped to the moon and we have not seen the fully tally of the COVID 19 effects, there are still sick ships out there trying to disembark ailing passengers and crew.
