Small lines with small ships - BPC ships are around 700 passenger can probably have an easier time satisfying the gov't concerns.
At this point I'm more interested in seeing the industry preserved. If I don't get on a ship for a while that's fine, but there needs to be a way for the industry to keep afloat until the plague is dealt with.
