  1. I'm pretty sure it will be southern Africa. Which could mean: Cape Town, Durban & Port Elizabeth for South Africa, Walvis Bay & Luderitz for Namibia, and perhaps even Mauritius & Reunion as well. At the end of the month we will know more.
  2. Princess Cruises ships currently out of service: Diamond Princess: Tokyo (cleaning / on hold) Sapphire Princess: Singapore (non-scheduled dry dock) Majestic Princess: Singapore (scheduled dry dock) Grand Princess: Oakland (deboarding / cleaning / on hold) Royal Princess: San Pedro (on hold) Regal Princess: on its way to Freeport (without Pax) Caribbean Princess: no sail order from CDC, returning to PEF Am I missing something?
  3. In Scotland it will be tasty Haggis, of course. Eat local. 😁
  4. Correct. The Crown Grill menu calls it Maine Lobster Tail. And it had to be ordered 1 day in advance on the Diamond for the MDR. On the Emerald, no pre-order was required.
  5. I know what you mean. Had this before, too. But on the Emerald last time, it was a nice risotto. Of course not. 😄 And there is still the Beef Wellington on the 2nd formal night. But this one is also hit or miss.
  6. On my last cruise with 3 formal nights (15 day Panama Canal ocean to ocean on the Emerald), there was broiled lobster tail on the 2nd and 3rd formal night. However, this isn't coldwater lobster. It has not much taste of its own. 2nd formal night: Broiled lobster tail Caribbean style. 3rd formal night: Broiled lobster tail with risotto. This is the standard Princess MDR lobster dish now. The risotto was not bad this time. But the whole dish just looks awful now. Some time ago, this MDR dish came also with king prawn, which usually was much more tasty than the lobster tail itself. If you want better stuff, you need the upgrade (19 USD surcharge): Broiled cold water lobster tail from Crown Grill in the MDR (on Diamond Princess). This one tastes much better.
  7. CNBC says: "The new coronavirus now has a name: COVID-19." NOT TRUE. That's about it.
  8. Lying? No. Incorrect information on their website? Yes. These are the guys who name the virus: https://talk.ictvonline.org/ Not the WHO. "severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2" (SARS-CoV-2).
  9. Did you realize that the Diamond bridge cam has been turned to the left by someone? It was always straight forward, now it looks to the port side of the ship. I bet it's because visitors shall not see all the ambulances parked at the pier...
  10. Maybe CNBC copied it from Reuters. But it's just not true. https://www.biorxiv.org/content/10.1101/2020.02.07.937862v1 https://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-china-51466362
  11. That's why the new one is called Sars-CoV-2. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2019_novel_coronavirus
  12. Not true, NBC. 😔 Covid-19 is the name of the lung desease cause by the virus. The official WHO name of the virus itself is Sars-CoV-2 .
