  1. Agreed. However I feel the above consideration is for the large(r) ship mass market cruise lines Paul Gauguin in French Polynesia sails July 29... confirmed and taking bookings Hurtigruten is beginning Norway coastal sailings July 19 Windstar (the Windspirit 188 passengers) sets sail from Tahiti Sept 3 2 days ago the EU set out a guideline for cruising to begin https://www.usatoday.com/story/travel/cruises/2020/07/01/eu-cruise-requirements-covid-19-screening-face-masks/5354654002/ You can bet that the cruise lines will be quickly trying to put this into effect in order to start putting money into their jeans. However, as mentioned (on this thread or another?) the so-called "American" cruise lines that depend on American passengers will suffer a great deal. The European lines (like Aida & MSC, and the riverboats) will be able to drum up business from their own European clientele.
  2. Super interesting.... thanks again cheng for your commentary and Biker /twangster for tracking this
  3. Jim, I believe you're half right as you are internalizing your thoughts to only the USA. I think I'm still 1/2 right (I said September) ... we'll see in 2 months. I feel that ships will sail this year, but not from USA and with ZERO Americans on board.
  4. Correct! Spurschick is on absolute fire on this thread.🏆 You go girl
  5. Here's one for this evening.... where am I?
  6. DING DING DING! spurschick gets a point for this one. 👍🏅 The much loved and well known Capt. Johnny ... is bike on Harmony's bridge
  7. Here's my installment for today ... which ship?
  8. DING DING DING DING! Yes, you are the winner on this one. Splendour & Legend had the WJ at the front of the ship with outdoor seating at the pooldeck facing back towards the VCL
  9. Nope, however getting warmer ... here's another hint
  10. There are so many fantastic reviewers/writers/entertainers here on CC as already mentioned above. AussieVisi2r (her name is Raina) was an incredible blogger here on CC'er. Her adventures are legendary. She now blogs all of her cruises on her own blog site http://www.rainatravels.com/ If you're looking for some good reading/pictures to enjoy every once in a while, a few of my own personal favorites are https://boards.cruisecritic.com/topic/2028118-serenade-sept-17-282014-review-wlots-of-photos/ https://boards.cruisecritic.com/topic/2056328-quantum-dec-1-11-2014-review-wlots-of-photos/ https://boards.cruisecritic.com/topic/2310655-adventureabcs-aug-20-272016-review-wlots-of-photos/ https://boards.cruisecritic.com/topic/2560648-brilliance-british-isles-june-19-july-22018-review-wlots-of-photos/ Old reviews are hard to search for. I haven't figured out how yet. If anyone knows how to search for them please post the instructions (ie. find the CC member, and look for their activity or which threads they started)
