For your information Uniworld is offering river cruises in that region next year, no single supplement.  I don't want to do too much flying, so am interested in something like that. Just reluctant to part with my money re travel  in uncertain times.

I think none of us want to do long haul flying, nor part with our money for cruises in advance. 

would be nice to think about a cruise in the future.  i never booked long in advance anyway.

I read an article by the ABC Breakfast TV Show reporter who is in US reporting on the election

He said he had two whole rows to himself and there were about 30 people in economy.  However, flight from San Francisco was packed.

Nice looking ship but not many balconies which I think will become a must after COVID.

The older ships do not have many balconies, you pay a lot of £ for a balcony. That ship wont be moving for a while. For sale is she not? Following the crash of CMV.

I just read elsewhere on CC , Columbus sold recently to Sea Jets, a ferry company. Appears she will be a people mover. Price US$5.3 million.

As you can see above (top right) Ovation of the Seas is going for a run!

 

 

Costa Atlantica and Costa Mediterranea, don't want to be apart of the above group and are social distancing from them🤣

Golden Princess has been docked along side the wet dock at SembCorp Ship Yard, I guess for technical maintenance, but now she is going for a run:

Notes:

* Yes, Sun Princess & Sea Princess have been sold, but in till they change names &/or get handed over to their new owners, they will still be mention in the updates 🙂.
* Crystal Serenity and Crystal Symphony are kicking around Singapore and Malaysia as well, but they are currently out of AIS range.

*. Island Princess and Noordam are now anchored/docked in Katakolon, Greece.

*. Pacific Princess is now docked in Civitavecchia, Italy

It's a ferry company, but it's not believed she will do that work there, as is not suited to it.

 

It's not the only cruise ship the owner has bought, so there's speculation he's either trying to buy low to resell when the market recovers, or maybe has other plans in mind (like starting a separate cruise line, though this is thought less likely in the current situation).

 

So a bit of a mystery, but looks like he's holding for the future to make money in recovery.

CDC has said they can cruise soon, they may be gearing up.

 

Only after they do test sailings and create agreements with hospitals and laboratories for COVID19 intake and testing, prove they can manage quarantine procedures and a whole bunch of other hurdles I have forgotten😂. You can read it yourself :

CDC Conditional Sail Order

 

For those who don't want to read 40pages here is summary though a little too brief:

Thanks for posting, Holy Moly, some work has gone into that CDC document.  I reckon some cruise lines will find it too hard to comply., leading to their demise.

Would think that each cruise line that CDC affects would know all about this, probably before the public?

It should also be remembered this is only CDC requirements. They haven't even gotten into the requirements destinations countries will place, most of which are the Carribean nations which have been far more hesitant about restarting cruises than the industry had expected. I think the only one willing so far is Mexico, not really enough ports to sustain a whole industry.

For sure, some countries will just refuse entry to the ships. Makes the world cruises shaky.

Thanks.  That is very interesting.  The item which jumped out to me was that cruises couldn't be longer than 7 days.  No wonder cruise lines have no cruises planned for Aust/NZ, whilst the virus is still active.

But isn’t that ruling for the USA? Why does it have to be 7 (seven) days here because it is  there?

We are not governed by the CDC in Aus - unfortunately I think we are governed by ABF and the Federal Govt though?
