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.

Good idea if that's the plan.

My concern is the potential of an onboard quarantine. Has anybody seen their plans to handle the situation when someone has flu-like symptoms? Or comes down with any variety of cold or flu virus?

That is a good question and a prime concern I am sure.

A couple of lines noted they will adopt reduced capacity and number of days within an itinerary. Seeing 3-7 day cruise lengths. What if someone wants a B2B, do you think the lines would allow under the reduced cruise length?

I hope it would be acceptable. We just had our first B2B in January and our next Carnival sailing(s) in 2022 is also a B2B. The October sailing on the Breeze would have also been a B2B. But only time will be the real answer. Here's hoping!!!!!Big Smile

I am pretty sure that as long as someone lays down the cash the cruise line will happily take it and skirt the B2B question by calling it 2 separate cruises ... which they actually do at this point. They will just be more adamant about it. Just to dot the Is and cross the ts they may have you disembark and then re-board.

Like everyone else, I am also curious what cruising will look like post COVID-19. I know that the first cruise out, on any given ship, everything will be spotless and the ship will be the cleanest it has been since it was christened.

The big question will be...How will they keep it clean during one of the clothing optional cruises ?? Surprised
