Had the call this morning with the news. One thing that hasn’t been mentioned yet is just where is SS going to get somewhere in the in region of an additional 400 crew from to staff the Moon.
At present the Philippine crew from the Whisper, Shadow, Wind and Spirit are still sitting in Southampton on the Spirit waiting for a charter flight to get them home. The crew of the the Muse and Explorer are still stuck outside Panama City, where they have been since the 23rd April, and with no idea where and when they can be disembarked to get home.
Even if the ship is ready by the beginning of September that only leaves 3 months to sort the crewing out, assuming that some international travel has returned before then.
IMHO it looks like a pipe dream.
