  1. I believe it was in the "Chops" vlog where he actually used the term "leftovers". He's a bright guy and I am sure he and the others realize that "top shelf" grub was going to be short lived. LOL! Good for them getting to enjoy it while it was available however.
  2. He was sure enjoying himself in Chops and the sushi place earlier this week. You could tell in his latest vlog where he said he was being sent home that he was none too enthused about it. I would think he is safer. They are all being closely monitored, having their temps checked daily etc. They are doing some cleaning but it sounds like they are giving them plenty of time to enjoy themselves. Much deserved but I knew they weren't going to allow them to "lay up" out there long term.
  3. This ^ I would love to hear their explanation of this quote, "The industry is resilient and has fared through far worse." What exactly has been "far worse" than a complete shut down and total shut off of income for who knows how many months?
  4. Majesty is headed to Gulfport as well. https://www.vesselfinder.com/vessels/MAJESTY-OF-THE-SEAS-IMO-8819512-MMSI-311734000 Looks like The Glory and The Getaway got the two slots in NOLA with the Valor and Majesty headed for Gulfport.
  5. Excellent news! The entertainers have very different lives than "Carlos" down in the bowels of the ship, scrubbing toilets in inside cabins. It makes me feel good knowing he may be able to get out and get fresh air and see some sunshine for a change. Hopefully they are also giving them all some good grub up in the Windjammer. We just gotta hope the heat slows this stuff down and they can get back to work after this initial 30 day shutdown. Unfortunately I don't see the cruise line just letting them all chill out there with pay for months on end.
  6. That sounds great! Hopefully they all do indeed get to have a bit of well deserved R&R during the middle of all this.
  7. You are very much correct in your assumption.
  8. LOL! They are going to be in for a rude awakening if they think the cruise line is going to let them sleep in and then lounge by the pool all day. "Attention crew, please report at 6 AM to receive your bucket of bleach and rags for your cleaning assignments".
  9. They have liquidity problems that are about to get a LOT worse. Waiting 90 days should come as zero surprise. Be glad if you get it within' 90 days.
  10. Soooooo much this. In what world would anyone want this company holding their money in their current financial condition. Grab any and all cash you can get!
  11. Which would possibly give them a way to avoid cash refunds and instead give out FCC's/IOU's.
  12. That came out of the meeting between CLIA and government agencies. My bet is the government wanted them to suspend cruises. They begged to not and pointed out their financial doom if shut down. CLIA countered with their plan if allowed to continue running ships. The 70 year olds and doctors notes was one of CLIA's counter proposals. Shutdowns of other non essential entertainment providers have since escalated. We are close to the point where the rest of the remaining cruise lines are going to have to shut er down.

  14. The NBA and NHL have suspended their seasons. MLB spring training appears to be shutdown, the season start has been delayed by two weeks. The NCAA basketball tourney has been cancelled. The SEC has stopped ALL spring sports, baseball, basketball conference tourney. I am assuming other universities around the nation are doing similar. Don't forget to mix in the closure of Disney World and Disney Land along with their cruise ships. At this point you have to admit the national "optics" and general perception of the cruise industry that has decided to just sail on with business as usual
