  1. Oh my goodness 10 days is too long to keep them on board. I hope something else can be arranged
  2. BBC news just mentioned a ship with positive cases off the Bahamas, but no cruise line name
  3. When the 'Hot Chicken' ladies did their last update on Thursday, they were also not being tested. They were in quarantine at Mirarmar, and as far as they were aware no plans to test them.
  4. I wouldn't have thought the US authorities would let them fly home on commercial flights without testing them. If the passengers were not allowed to, then surely it would be the same rules for the crew. They could be carrying the virus through airports and onto aircraft.
  5. I think we are at the point now where all international leisure travel has to be put on hold. You just have to look at the scenes in Italian hospitals to see where this could be heading, and Italy does have a good health system. Many younger, healthy people that contract the virus still require ventilators, and there are not enough to save everyone - it's tragic. Our priorities have to change, hopefully just for a few months.
  6. I think that's an insult to many other European countries, taking it just as seriously as the UK. (I understand that was Trump's statement - not critising the OP at all)
  7. Strange,, that they have excluded the UK. We have as many cases here as a lot of the rest of Europe (5 European countries have more, but about 30 have less)
  8. This is a disgrace, they should keep them in their cabins until they know the bus can depart, no excuse for this treatment. There had better at least be a bathroom on that bus.
  9. It's terrible that they aren't telling them the details, feel so sorry for them
  10. One of the fatalities in the U.K. was a gentleman who had taken a 'Caribbean cruise' but as far as I am aware we have not heard any more details about which cruise it was. https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/11102624/family-coronavirus-granddad-unable-arrange-funeral/
  11. The British passengers have been flown back on a special charter, on arriving in the UK they are allowed to go home and self-isolate.
  12. I think it's too soon to tell. If the rest of Europe becomes as bad affected as Italy, then it would be impractical to cruise to those countries.
  13. I wonder if cruise passengers unknowingly infected the port workers initially 😞
  14. Another non-Princess ship with issues, off the coast of France - tests came back negative, thank goodness https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8095393/Carnival-cruise-ship-Marseilles-latest-refused-permission.html
