And....another domino falls. The way this thing is going, the title of this thread should be changed to "It Might Be A Lot Longer". I'm believing more and more that a truly safe & effective vaccine is cruising's only hope.

I mean, cruise ships with 66 people total can't even complete a voyage without someone testing positive.  Cruising is dead.  Much like self-serve buffets, twenty years from now people are going to look back on this and marvel at the fact that people used to spend a week with thousands of other people in such close quarter petri dishes.

This news is truly worrisome...I agree..if even a ship of this size is affected...it will be a LONG time for cruising to resume in any capacity.....

No mention of "limited" start this year, which is very interesting. Let the speculation begin again.

He did also say that they may do a very limited number of sailings in the last couple of months of 2020.

In the article/poster I quoted there was no mention of 2020, a completely different article than what you have linked.

 

Thanks for that "other" link though.

Looks like France will be on quarantine list by end of weekend, Bahamas, Belgium yesterday ? Can’t return to the U.K. without two weeks quarantine.
