  1. Made by 🦇🦇 🦇🦇 living in China.
  2. The rumors, about cruising starting soon in China, grow. From Cruise Weekly: "THE Chinese cruise market seems to be rebounding, with Chinese cruise line Astro Ocean Cruises beginning to staff up again, signalling it may be planning to restart operations soon. The line has begun an aggressive recruitment drive in China for both marine and hotel jobs aboard Piano Land, which is the former Oriana, formerly sailing for P&O Cruises UK. Royal Caribbean Cruises recently extended its cancellation for all markets except China, where it plans to restart from today (CW 21 May)."
  3. Never let the truth get in the way of a alarming headline.
  4. I just checked Jetstar and they have $79 one way fare for June.
  5. ""I am sorry for the confusion," said Dr. Eugene Tian, an economic research administrator with the Hawaii State Department of Business, Economic Development & Tourism. "It is a good idea to let your readers know that these assumptions are pure economic assumptions, not the government decisions.""
  6. That could be said for all of Australia. The virus came from overseas first.
  7. Harvard Medical School said that COVID-19 can "survive up to four hours on copper, up to 24 hours on cardboard". Australia Post is not that quick.😉
  8. WHO and the CDC have said that there is currently no evidence to support the theory that COVID-19 can be transmitted via packages, regardless of their origin.
  9. It makes the closure of the State borders questionable. The closures are holding up the economic recovery of the whole country.
  10. Sophie Matterson is doing it, from WA. "Brisbane woman Sophie Matterson (Coast to Coast Camel Trek) has embarked on an ambitious solo expedition, leading five camels across the continent, from Shark Bay, WA, to Byron Bay, NSW". See Link.
  11. A little to early for me to consider booking a cruise.😞
  12. Here is a more balanced article from the ABC about Ocean cruising. It is to be broadcast tonight. See link.
  13. I am on a Sun Princess roll call that was scheduled to sail on the 15th April 20. I have not received my refund but there are posts from fellow RC members reporting they have received their refunds. I spoke with my TA yesterday and he stated that his inbox was full of refunds from Princess. The refunds appear to be processed by scheduled departure date. I am now more optimistic than I was previously. 🤞🤞
