Sounds like fun.  Not.

And there won’t be any substantial difference for sailings out of North America.

Oh brilliant 

 

”Activities and services on board cruise ships could be organized according to age group, so that older individuals are separated from other age groups.”

 

Yip older ladies separated from their toyboys 😂😂

This should be fun lol

 

 

recommended to remove coffee machines, kettles, and all mini bar products from the cabin, unless these products are offered from a dispenser or can be disinfected between occupancies. It is preferable that the above devices or mini bar products be made available upon a passenger’s request, so that their disinfection is ensured. The mini bar can be used as a refrigerator by passengers and should be disinfected after each check out.
A disposable cover should be placed on the TV and the air-conditioning remote controls to facilitate proper disinfection, unless these items can be easily and adequately cleaned and disinfected.
All types of surfaces and materials which may be touched, including textile surfaces (e.g. sofas, cushions, rugs, furniture, wallpaper) should be cleaned between occupancies.
During occupancy of a cabin by the same passenger/passengers, clothing and towels should be changed upon a passenger’s request or routinely, but it is recommended that routine changes are made less frequent than normal (e.g. avoid changing of towels twice daily).

Agreed. Haven’t seen any movement by the cruise industry to address the concerns in the no sail order. My impression, they have gone mostly ignored.

The last I heard was that every cabin and public area would be hit with a hydrogen peroxide "bomb" between cruises.

We can only hope and that it applies to North American sailings as well once they resume!

Casino layouts should be reviewed so that physical distancing of least 1.5 metres 

 

Positioning of seats (sunbeds, chairs, poufs, lounge chairs, etc.) should be such that the distance between the edges of the seats of two passengers from different umbrellas or two passengers from different rooms is at least 1.5 metres 

 

It is recommended that bathers are separated by a schedule or if possible, by different facilities for swimming and service for different groups.
The maximum allowable number of bathers at any time in the swimming pools should be one bather per 4 m2 of water surface, regardless of the depth of the pool. Small hot tubs (with depth less than 1 m and tub volume less than 6 m3) should be used only by bathers of the same household or by bathers staying in the same cabin at a time.

They will need to triple the number of crew members to enforce all this crap.

one bather per 4 m2 of water surface, LOL.

Does anyone hear the bankruptcy alarm bell ringing?

Cruising is dead if this is true.

 

Really, smoking in the casino?  Celebrity pulled it off, and it's been working for over 10 years now.

 

They said the same thing about bars banning smoking, but they actually ended up getting more business, including mine.  🍷

Pretty sure they meant with the guidelines, not eliminating smoking.

Maybe not.  It's possible that only the 2% of truly addicted year round cruisers would tolerate all this crap and even be interested in boarding.
