I'm sure other cruise lines will follow! Thanks for the update.

I saw that last night and was happy i rescheduled to the end of July.. i sort of worry about my rescheduled cruise not happening, but I am just going to enjoy the excitement of discovering another new ship, and planning activities for the family while I can.

Apparently on another site, Carnival is to make a decision by/on Friday, March 27th. Have to wait and see. I tried to do a monk booking foe my cruise on May 3rd bur automatically comes up sold out so something is up.

On their Facebook page they posted they would make an announcement on the 27th. I am sure they will follow the others... but maybe not.

I was booked to go out on the Dream on the 2nd of May, and just had a feeling it wasn't going to happen.

Clear to me that wiser (calmer) heads are prevailing up on mahogany row. As much of a financial hit they and whatever other lines join them in the "extension" may take, it'd be way worse if they resume and the plague breaks out again on one of their ships. Glad I straightened out the one I cancelled before the next round.

We updated this article last night to show all current suspensions/extensions!

The extension is not so much a choice as it is an inevitability. None of the embarkation debarkation ports are open nor will they be for at least another 2 months. Nor are there any flights available. You sort of need to be able to get the peeps to and from the ports for them to cruise. And of course what islands or destinations are going to accept people from other areas? This is more of a case of the cruise execs reading the writing on the wall and adjusting accordingly.

So much for the "business as usual by Easter" stuff. You hit it exactly OGW...you can't get TO the ship, or OFF it. what's the point of cruising. Its just asking for trouble. Never thought I'd see something like this.

That is a timeline that is adjustable and is being evaluated on a daily basis. A lot of areas actually might be able to hit that mark.

Certainly hope so. But, how dyou prevent peeps from infected areas, say NY, or CA from getting in their cars and traveling to other areas? The MD's and scientists say one thing, and the pols say something else. Our state Governor is on TV daily with his MD advisors etc, and his reports are exactly the opposite of whats coming out of the White House. We're talking an entire state, and he's not hardly alone. I wish "they" would present facts instead of wishful thinking. Nuff said.
