Now its ANTHEM OF THE SEAS, and WESTERDAM

You can't tell me there's sufficient controls in place to prevent this from continuing. There's folks in here with up coming cruises (including us) who are casting a wary eye on all this. I think the impact on the cruise industry and many other vendors who support it hasn't even gotten close to peaking. I don't expect any cruise line to admit fault, or even how many cancellations they've had. Or how many people who were GOING to book a cruise decided to wait. Obviously there's no way to even estimate that.

I see the Anthem has now been cleared and will depart tomorrow for a 5 day cruise to Bermuda

I'd rather do that anyway!!!!!Wish I was on that ship!

You just got back!!! good grief....heheheheheh

The extra day delay for Anthem (beyond the health check of the 4 passengers) was due to a deceased crew member (not caused by the virus). The crew member did not report for duty and was found in quarters. The extra day at the request of local law enforcement.

I know, but we are having snow in my part of Colorado and the Caribbean was soooooo warm !

Saw this as well. They found him in the engine room a week before returning to port. They kept him in a freezer or refrigerator until they got back to port.

Makes you REALLY want to cruise that ship. Wasn't that a movie or something? Seriously tho, seems like they'd want to do an autopsy.. "death under suspicious circumstances" and all that.

They are doing an autopsy .. in NJ

Just saw an article that the # of confirmed cases onboard has more than doubled. The stats worldwide have apparently surpassed SARS.
