  4. Working from home for 6 weeks now, cleaning and cooking, eating, drinking, putting on some kilos that I hope I will loose soon. Having sun bath at the window. I leave in an apartment in Copacabana so no outside to go to....but I can see the Christ statue in the distance.....from my living room window
  5. Now that my cruise from Dublin to Reykjavík is canceled we are considering Dunedin-Dunedin on December 2020. Does anyone have experience with NZ subantartic islands and Macquaire Island?
  6. Antartica w/South Georgia and the Artic to see polar bears were great, Galapagos was nice. We are considering going on Explorer to NZ subantartic islands next December.
  7. Consider that you will have several wet activities and landings (from zodiac), having the balcony to get your stuff dry is a must.
  8. Hi Rome, nice that you are home and safe!
  9. I didnt see anything in the press.
  10. Her sister was in this post early. Hls22. I could not send her an email as it seems the email system is not working.
  11. There are other cruise ships in quarantine in Brazil this week. One from Costa (Costa Fascinosa) and Scenic Eclipse. The former had 35 crew member with covid-19. The second had no one infected. In both cruses guests have already gone before. Both are at Santos Port in Sao Paulo.
  12. Does anyone knows the hospital where she is? I can give her a call.
  13. Is it possible that on May 14 all this situation about covid-19 will have finished? I am booked on May 29 on cloud from dublin to Reykyavik. I havent canceled but I am sceptical that this will have finished.
  14. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, two French-flagged ships requested humanitarian aid from Brazil in order to be able to dock and remove their passengers to their countries of origin. After receiving authorization from the National Health Surveillance Agency (Anvisa), the first of them, the L'Austral cruise, docked this Tuesday (24th) in the Port of Rio de Janeiro and removed 252 passengers. None of them showed symptoms of the new virus. Anvisa reported that the ship was at sea, without docking at any other port, for more than 20 days, that is, a period longer than that recommended for isolation, without cases on board. For the removal of passengers, Anvisa demanded that everyone use protective equipment. The measure aimed to protect passengers, in view of the community transmission already confirmed in the city of Rio de Janeiro. The ship is currently anchored in front of Copacabana Beach awaiting the arrival of the second ship, Le Boreal, which should dock at the port on Wednesday afternoon (25). Both will make a technical stop to supply water and food and will continue together back to France, country of origin of the vessels. This Wednesday Le Boreal completes 10 days of sailing without having docked in any other port. There are also no reports of suspected coronavirus cases on board. However, disembarkation will only be authorized from tomorrow (26), provided that all health conditions required by the agency are maintained. Anvisa also stated that the disembarkation should happen as the return flights are available to passengers. Transportation takes place directly, that is, from the ship's door to the airport. By means of a note, the Píer Mauá Terminal, in the Port of Rio de Janeiro, informed that there are 324 passengers aboard Le Boreal, 124 of whom are guests. There is also the presence of elderly people. The terminal also highlighted that passengers board the available buses as soon as they leave the ship, without passing through the Pier Mauá.
