HOW DO THEY PLAN TO DO THAT??? the ships aren't sold out? So people who have a booking will have it cancelled by the cruise line in order to "comply"???

Interesting thoughts. I can honestly say it would not hurt my feelings in the least to be one of the 25 - 30% of passengers on a ship. Have the whole ship to yourself almost. Why every day would be like a port day. Would not have to worry about CHOGS ... etc.

Yepper….it would be grand!!! Sometimes we NEVER get off for that reason.....I've seen boonies, and kids rides don't float my boat anymore anyway. But the fact remains...they have to "manage" idea how....can they make $$ with a ship 1/3 full?...I kind of doubt it...

Selfishly, I am hoping we know more before July 20th when our final payment is due for our October cruise. If the requirements are onerous, we might feel the need to cancel. Speculation about what is going to happen is just that: speculation. Hoping for the best; planning for the worst. long as the pooh bahs at an assortment of cruise lines grant these interviews it just fuels the fire. Mebbe that's why they do it. Course its worse for some of us, who "thought" we knew what was going on "pre-covid"...turns out we don't even know who's driving the bus...but I'll bet its not the cruise lines..
