We were debating masks and buffets and such...and wondered if that was the "new normal''...I submit THIS is the new normal.....
Yeah. it looks like MSC handled it well. But check out this maritime law attorney's take on the subject.
Personally I think he's a bit over the top, but I'll admit if anything ever happened to me or my family on a cruise that would require my seeking legal assistance, he'd be the guy I call. He gives absolutely no quarter to the cruise lines, especially related to COVID.
The first time it happens here I predict it's going to be a hair on fire event, and the pundits will rush to the news studios to breathlessly proclaim the end of the world. They will attempt to make the case that it still isn't safe, no matter what protocols are in place. Hopefully more rational heads will prevail.
