Hi Everyone,


Hope everyone is safe and healthy.  Does anyone know which Princess Ships will be the first to sail once they restart?  I doubt all ships will start sailing at the beginning.

And the Regal is supposed to be in Oz. I am booked on it Dec-15 out of Sydney. Given the situation in Victoria it is looking increasingly unlikely to happen 😕

Totally agree with you. Our PM has stated that there will be no visitors from overseas until after the 31 Mar 21. No doubt that date will be extended until the pandemic is behind us. Cruising has a bad name in OZ after the Ruby Princess debacle.

Right now, the Sun, Sea, Sapphire, and Majestic are scheduled to resume cruises around Australia in November.

Not going to happen. Maybe Spring 2021. But certainly not in the next 6 months.

NZ is close to putting the 2020 Aus/NZ cruise calendar out of commission:


Victoria will have to be like QLD/WA/NT/SA/Tas in terms of community spread before the travel bubble will be allowed. Given that cases are only just peaking (hopefully they are peaking), this is months away yet. Somewhere in 2021 looks more likely.

No chance of restarting until a vaccine or herd immunity has swept through. Unless you are prepared to sociably distance and wear masks at all time whilst inside the ship.

Who knows. Post vaccine is 2021 at the earliest. Many countries in Europe have a better handle on the virus then the U.S. Maybe one of the ships already in Europe could take on European passengers in the first quarter 2021. Australia seemed to have the virus under control, but look at Victoria today, with Melbourne in a six week lock down.
