Disney CEO Bob Chapek on cruising


Recommended Posts

The CEO was interviewed on MSNBC this morning.  Most was about Disneyland opening on April 30th and their cable offerings, but toward the end said he felt Disney Cruise s would resume in the fall and was looking forward to clarified guidance from the CDC "in the coming weeks".

Go figure if CDC allowed Disney reopen and ban cruise ships sailing.

Most of the clients are below 50 years old and not many are vaccinated.

Cruising and theme parks are not the same...some similar concerns but cruising is more complex...

 

Dtr and family went to Disney Orlando in Dec.  They thought it was overcrowded, short on staff  and had not that much social distancing compared to other similar parks.    Hopefully improving as they re-staff.

The state's (Florida and California) control the openings of theme parks in their states. The CDC regulates health concerns for interstate and international travel, hence their role in cruising. Different authorities, with or without concerns of different risks.

Has Florida or any other state reported outbreaks related to the reopening of the theme parks?  If not, maybe their current practices are safe.

Florida is open!   The theme parks vary a bit in their safety measures.  Disney has not re-opened their shows and dinner shows, nor has resumed parades.   All of the theme parks required masks and have enhanced their cleaning.  Restaurants are open, with most having put up tall barriers between booths and distanced their tables.  

 

I work in healthcare and can report with our current open practices, our COVID infection rate is currently ranked in the middle of the county, next to California which remains closed for the most part.   Due to Florida's high level of senior adults living here,  the first priority for vaccinations has been the 65+ population (now 60+ as of last Monday),  healthcare, first responders and educators, as well as people with health conditions making them vulnerable to COVID.   By the end of April, vaccinations should be available to anyone who wants one.  

 

I pray the CDC will allow 7-day or less sailings from Florida very soon!
