  1. So basically all Captains stayed on board since the outbreak, no rotations happened so far on most cruise ships in the world. As the responsible person you would decide to leave last in such a crisis...
  2. The plan has always been that they do some sea trials and thereafter arrive in Rotterdam on June 2 for a short dry docking.
  3. The law regarding overtime is pretty straight and clear. The works council needs to approve it, not the government. This is usually no problem but not reasonable if you do layoffs at the same time. Meyer could work faster now again even with implemented social distancing, but no need as all cruise lines ask for much later delivery.
  4. My point is that many posters assume Meyer is responsible for a big delay but this is not the case. They could even speed up now with e.g. overtime work now but cruise lines are asking for later deliveries.Hence the yard remains on short time work and does layoffs.
  5. Meyer will deliver Iona in second half of June, this is just 1.5 months delay. Odyssey could be ready with a similar delay but the question is if Royal wants her at that time or later.
  6. They will not sell any ship now because no cruise line has money to buy ships...
  7. Delivery to P&O is now scheduled for second half of June.
  8. Some ports are currently open also for cruise ships like e.g. Tromso, Hamburg and Southampton but this does not include any touristic passenger movements as long as borders are closed and rules for running cruise ships again are not defined. Hence this list is not helpful for cruise ship tourism.
  9. The issue is not Manila but domestic flights to the islands are not running so crew can not leave Manila and therefore some have been forced to stay there in quarantine for six week and longer. As long as they may not leave Manila no space in the quarantine places for others to leave ships...
  10. It is not the yard, currently it is the Cruise Lines who prefer a later delivery due to cash flow issues and no demand. Hence Meyer slows down. Iona could be ready but no one needs her.

  12. I have been told by Royal agents it must be the same class of ships, is this true?
  13. Sorry but it is still a shame how many misuse this good option now and show off with their saving due to shifted fake bookings. Royal's agents should not be bothered with all this calls to close such deals but focus on the people who are really not able to travel as planned and still waiting for help, solutions and refunds.
  14. You are right, I just do not understand why so many big ships stop just at boring Corner Brook when visiting Newfoundland.
