Thanks for sharing! Sad that the start-ups didn't go as smoothly as we hoped. Sad

Yea, this is going to throw a monkey wrench into the workings for all cruise lines. The industry does not need this at this time. We have cancelled all travel out of our area until 2022. I can't be sure that 2021 will be any better.

Bit of a set back- now back to the drawing board.

Long as they consider this to be a learning experience and not a failure .... And I am sure there will be more ... learning experiences

Doh!

Utterly predictable...did anyone read the comments attached to the "update"? Yeh OGW...a "learning experience"....not with us onboard thankyou.....just waiting for the right "time" to cancel Nov...

Where at a point of inflection on whether this industry will crumble due undefinable point of time to restart. Who knows what will be left of the industry. Need some therapeutics and vaccine to turn the world around and mitigate fear.

and it gets worse.................. Possible Spread to ports off of Cruise....

Here is the latest in Alaska. Cruise ship/line tries it and fails. I'm afraid this is a sign of the times until a viable vaccine is discovered.

We have a surge of Covid-19 going in Alaska right now. Anchorage, which has about half the population of Alaska has come up with more stringent rules than most of the rest of the state has. Anchorage gets hit harder than other communities up here due to it being the economic and social center of the state, so the city has to absorb a lot of those sitting it out in isolation or ventilators.

Even then, there are those who still believe it all to be a hoax. Take for instance, Kriner, a small diner owner near downtown Anchorage, he defied the ordinance and packed his restaurant. He is getting penalized but the obstinate are throwing $100.00 bills at him to help with his fines.
