Frankly, I'm not interested asking THEM anything..they aren't driving this bus, and their "pronouncements" change so often they have no value. You can't even trust their recently published schedules. When the CDC "allows" them to sail, I'd have MANY questions re the experiences the passengers had, from getting to the terminal, the zoo AT the terminal, and all that good stuff we took for granted on board that either wasn't there, or couldn't be enjoyed. Sites like this will become even MORE valuable.

Would first need to see exactly what the new rules and protocols are going to be before asking any questions.

Would rather talk to cruisers who have /will be on the first cruises when it does eventually open up. Their information would be more valuable to me.

First cruise experience back will be useless. i want to hear from the people that are 4-5 weeks in. This will evolve drastically for the first few weeks while they figure out what works, and what doesnt.

Cruising will be suspended until 9/15/2020.from US ports.

Wellll.not quite "useless", but you're right...figure that would be me....IF they are sailing, and IF we go, and so on and so forth....

Well ranted on FB. But short version is we really don't have visibility if the industry is collaborating with the gov'ts or is it sitting on its hands and awaiting an edict. I hope the later is not the case.

Believe they need to collaborate to come up with a plan with the health organizations of the gov'ts, lay out protocols, and TEST them on short trips. Start with 2-sea days, if they have a private island, add a day (or two) and run the protocols. Bring people back - adjust processes, monitor crew and previous passengers, and repeat. If everyone returns and is not sick in 14 days, then it was a success. If not, fix the processes.

I have a few:

1.) Could you keep us more in the loop of what's happening? Some people are confused as to what the holdup is.

2.) What precautions are you willing to take to ensure my safety?

3.) Would masks be required for all passengers, and if so, under what circumstances should we wear them?

4.) There have been rumors about temperature checks, could you shed some light on that?

5.) What will Embarkation Day look like? What about requirements to get on/off the ship at various ports?

6.) Are you keeping the buffets or no? If you are keeping the buffets, will they be like the ones you sometimes see in the malls where a staff member puts the food on your plate?

7.) Will we need to self-quarantine for two weeks once the cruise is over?

8.) How many passengers will you allow on each cruise and what are you plans to make sure everyone is honoring Social Distancing?

9.) If there is a case of COVID onboard the ship, what are your policies to make sure that it doesn't spread to other passengers? What kind of treatment plan do you have for that person with COVID?

Great list...great questions...EACH AND EVERY ONE..I just don't expect ANY answers unless and until their so-called" plans" have been blessed by an assortment of bureaucrats. That way at least they can blame somebody else for the rules..up to and including passengers who cheat.. and as far as I'm concerned, interviewing the poohbahs is a waste of time. I'd want to see those "rules" and "adjustments" in writing on each website.
