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? 

Yes, sorry I should have said for USA.  I thought that was understood by reading the article.

I understand that - read the article 👍 

Just would be interested to know how a CDC ruling could or would affect our return to cruising when we don’t currently have a similar body? 🤔

Sheer curiosity 🙄

I don't know the answer.  However, suspect cruise lines would be interested in CDC rulings in relation to cruising to places additional to the USA.

I read that the CDC has issued this conditional to the cruise lines. 
 

However, there is still something like a CDC level 3 warning to passengers against cruising.  That is the sort of level where insurance companies are unlikely to issue policies.

Availability of affordable travel insurance is going to be the key.  (You may have seen on the news that insurance has become unaffordable for some units in the north due to cost of repairing cyclone damage.)

It is interesting..... almost none of cruise ship are registered in the US

and I believe that Canvinal is sort of based in Panama fro tax reason...

 

So the CDC   i thought would only be involved , with US people, ports and territorial waters....

 

This 7 day thing, from what I get the gist of things in most of the American based Cruises are round the  Caribbean and are less that 7 or less days, as well as being mega ships.... which skews the number showing Americans make up half the worlds cruise passengers....

That is interesting.  Why do you think that is?

 

San Diego was where Eclipse and Millennium ended up when cruising was shut down. Eclipse had a 14 day non stop voyage from Chile which was not heavily reported but did have an outbreak that really didn't hit the news. Both ships were on their normal repositioning for the Alaska cruise season which was subsequently cancelled. I think they are trying to get something planned for Millennium in the Caribbean through the winter and then move her back to Vancouver for Alaska 2021.

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.

 

In the choice between complying, and going out of business, I think I can guess which side businesses would fall.

 

That said, some are operating under tighter frameworks at the moment e.g. more masks and face shields, and I don't see anything especially onerous in the new rules. This is a step towards recovery.

It doesn't, much. It will have some influence from the cruise lines and CLIA as a lobby case saying that they're complying with CDC guidelines which in the absence of anything else, shows they are compliant with another legislative framework.

 

However, just as with border closures and other things, the Australian government will decide how much influence that has on their own assessment (rather than be bound to follow it).

I reckon the Australian Govt will impose the CDC policy on the cruise operations here.

As it stands, I'd expect they'd overlay it with extra conditions, but that's speculation. To an extent it all depends what the situation is when cruising restarts e.g. if there is a vaccine or as treatment improves.

Bit off topic , but came across this interesting video giving an idea of the cost for ships to transit the Sue’s Canal .It’s for cargo ,but could also apply for cruise ships as well .

No wonder they don’t cruise through often.
