Good morning.

Thank you for the Daily Report.

No April Fools day pranks today.

Sending prayers to everyone on the Rotterdam and the Zaandam.

Stay healthy everyone.

Wishing this was an April Fools joke.

Thanks for letting us know where the dam ships are today, Rich.

 

Watching and hoping for the Zaandam & Rotterdam.  

 

As to April Fool’s day:

Thank you for the Fleet report.

 

Sadly Florida is still fighting to keep the ships from docking there.  And that is no joke.

Thank you for today’s report, Rich! I noticed that the Z & R take turns leading the way. Does anyone know if that change in position would serve a specific purpose?  In sailing we would say the following craft is drafting the lead craft. But I know nothing about cruise ships, other than I know I love sailing on them.
 

Roy & Jacqui perfectly express my sentiments about April Fool’s Day.

 

@Krazy Kruizersdo not lose hope. There are many wonderful people in my state, and I have to believe they will come through for the Zaandam & Rotterdam. I even heard the President say something about not turning them away.

 

I will say that those passengers and crew do deserve not to be treated the way they are. I hope their ordeal ends soon.

 

Stay well everyone!

Thanks for the report, Rich. In any other year, a list of so many ships not going anywhere would look like an April Fool's joke.

 

Thanks for the funny, Jacqui. I tried to think of an April Fool's text to send to my SIL, but everything that's happening is more surreal than anything I can make up.

Thanks for the Daily.  Looking at @kazu post about April Fool's Day being cancelled, I'm going to make this Leftover Baked Ham and Bread Pudding Day. (last night's menu)

 

Smooth Sailing!  🙂🙂🙂

Everything ok, Joy?  Were you anywhere near the epicenter?  This seems extra cruel with everything else going on.

 

Stay well.

Good Morning cat. We're fine. We live in northern Idaho, about 170 miles from Canada. A few friends said they felt like a large truck was rumbling by.  Thank you for thinking of me!

Thank you for the daily report.  Concerned still for those on Board the Rotterdam and Zaandam.  Hope they can dock soon.

Good morning dear friend. You and I are blessed we were able to get off our ships in time to make it home safely. It's pure heartache seeing what's happening to our beloved ships. Be good. Be kind. Stay well.

Thank you for the report, Rich.  

 

Nothing funny about today.  We're all praying, I'm sure, for the passengers and crew on the Zaandam and the Rotterdam, just waiting to hear what happens in Fort Lauderdale tomorrow.

My prayers are for the sick and healthy on the Zaandam.  someone has to have the Charity to help those poor people.  Let us hope there is some decency shown to the people of these two ships.  captain Albert;s blogs have been deafining by their silence over the last week
