Will Carnival follow suit?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Now that NCL & RCCL have cancelled cruises for the next 30 days, I think Carnival should do the same. I think it will look bad if they continue to operate.  Thoughts?

Agreed.  Stop the "only if you're young and healthy" charade and just shut it down.

Shut it down. Offer 100% refund plus FCC to get folks back on board when the all clear is sounded.

NCL is offering 125% FCC or 100% refund. Haven't seen the RCCL offer yet.

I guess I’m foolish and/or self absorbed because we board Sunshine in 21 days. If it comes back with a load of sick folks Monday from yesterday’s sailing I may change my tune...

I told my husband yesterday this was coming.  We have a cruise booked on RCCL leaving April 19th.  I told him there is a very good chance we won't sail.  So far our sail date isn't one of the ones cancelled but they could very well extend the cancellation past 30 days.  I think Carnival will follow suit shortly.

Understandable.

Been over at the pool, missed all this fun.  How about HAL?

They are already being sued(Carnival Corp, of course) by a couple that were on Grand Princess. If they continue to sail Carnival ships with people, and there is another outbreak, they may as well file Ch. 11 now. Jury and judge will see that all other companies halted business, including one of their own companies! so why not Carnival? They will be viewed as negligent and that they care for the bottom line more than the safety of their passengers and crew.

HAL should have been first with their demographic!

Exactly why I asked.

Check the cruise contact next time you sail, you might have another view....

I think that will fall under Carnival's umbrella. NCL has included all their brands.

Oh, I realize those people who sued are most likely NOT going to be successful unless they are just paid off to shut up. But you know the sue-happy people in the US.  There would be some stupid attorney that would take it on.

Thought since they had previously named Princess and Costa, it was the time for HAL.

I'm supposed to sail on the Horizon in two weeks.  If we start packing now they'll cancel if we wait until last minute they won't. To pack or not to pack.

Same! I hate the consequences if they don't cancel though.  I work in higher ed and we will have to self quarantine. That will burn all of my sick time.

I'm leaning towards canceling if Carnival doesn't. I'd hate to come home having it, not know and infect a bunch of people.  If you could easily get tested it would be a different story.

The Norwegian Sun let everybody board today but made them disembark later in the afternoon.  Read that it was because they were only at 40% capacity and would have lost money on the sailing, but that could be a rumor.  So, don’t unpack until you are actually moving if you get to board 🙄

We cancelled our airfare today.  Our May 3 sailing probably won’t be in the first wave of cancellations, but once we hear the announcement we will stop waiting for better reimbursement and just cancel under the available deal.
