Cruising Post COVID

Anyone else curious about how the cruise line industry or cruising in general will change post COVID-19?

This is not a meant to be a political question, just a question out of curiousity.

No did not see that announcement. Ours is Sept 8 out of NY. Hoping things are good by then. This one offered everything we wanted and the price was fantastic so figured we had to take a chance as we really had nothing to loose on it.

The email included a pdf of his letter describing the "update" to the POM policy extending it to 11/30. She got it under her ID#, I didn' there may be some logic to it but I have no idea how its rolling out. there may be an update on their website...either way...she's antsy about the 11/29 cruise out of NOLA...yours is almost 2 mos earlier out of NY...sure can pick em can't we.....

Well ... as I said .. the price blew me away (1/2 of what it would be in 2021 and that one only 7 days and not 9) for the itinerary and not like I have anything to lose. Worst case scenario I have more FCC to book and am disappointed that I miss another one. My feeling will heal .. lol. ... and .. I get to sail the Encore (I hope).

NCL may cancel or change .. I hope not but .. hey might as well .. I put it down to lock down fever .. shack wacky .. lol

AHA!!! OGW, here tis...did you finally get the email or find it on their website?...haven't visited there lately, guess that's next....

I saw today the POM is now till Nov 30

If they knew what they were doing they'd be dangerous. Helluva way to run a cruiseline. So apparently you never did get the email notification? I never did either..she got it under her ID#.

Well darn. Gov of Canada just announced a ban on cruise ships in Canadian ports until Oct 31 2020 so looks like my cruise will be cancelled.

Anyone that had plans for Alaska or the NE should check with their cruise line.


What is post-COVID? COVID - SARS viruses never go away. All the SARs #19 and below are still out there. So C19 is here forever. Perhaps the question is, how do we live with it.

Badly....until theres a vaccine...and I can't imagine inoculating BILLIONS of peeps.The flu vaccine we take for granted is only about 50% effective, and you have to get the shot annually, if you even bother.. and we take that so for granted nobody pays much attention to the death rate for THAT anymore...
