How sad! Even if things change for the better as quickly as they went bad, I don't see them changing their minds. I can't imagine how some places in Alaska will survive.Sad

Yep .. just saw that on FB courtesy of cruiseline.com. So there goes my Sept 2021 cruise and any Alaskan cruse for that matter as they always do Canadian stops for their "foreign" port. Just as well as we will probably not have everyone vaccinated much before sometime in 2022. So far Canada is vaccinating just over 6000 a day with limited supplies of vaccine expected over the next while.

Well, I saw the news. The cancellation until then, coupled with travel ban in place will kill any plans for me for a while. Not that I can do any trips, most of the businesses that I can work for are not open and won't be for a while. The industrial markets here in Northern Alberta have crashed for a while.

Haven’t heard from you in a while. Sorry things are not going well. Glad to hear from you.

Agreed, things really are tough all over..as much as we enjoy cruising, its really not at the top of many folks priority list right now...

Gonna be a real slow comeback for the cruise industry or any travel for that matter. New Covid variants are not helping matters.

We were supposed to sail from Montreal on the Empress in Sept. The ship got sold. Turns out it would have been cancelled anyway. So then we booked Radiance Vancouver to LA for Sept. That isn't happening either. No cruises for us this year. Next year is going to be busy, though.

Yeah, been a while. We have a slow economy and winter. That combination is not helping the covid issue either. I can't wait until spring....

Well, getting our first shot in two hours. We are still in Florida but will be in Alaska in a week for two weeks, had scheduled for Pzisers on Feb 11th in Anchorage but will cancel this evening if all goes okay.

As far as the news with the cruise ships. No big surprise. I have thought all along that the 2021 season is shot already. Cruise passengers make up over 65% of all visitation to Alaska, so things are going to get tougher yet. Population in Alaska has shrunk and is shrinking------Wonder where everyone is going? Maybe, down here in Florida like us. Ha

Canada bans cruise ships for another year, likely halting most of Alaska’s 2021 tourism season - Anchorage Daily News (adn.com)

CONGRATS!!!!! None of you characters around here.....we'd notice....hehehehhe
