  1. I am sure that millions of older cruisers will not sail on full ships. The cruise lines have to prove that cruising is safe. If they don’t, the passengers will not come.

    The linked article does not prove anything. The countries that cruise lines sail to and from, have the final say. Evidence being, what Canada did. Canada banned all cruise ships carrying more 100 passengers. That effectively ended Alaska cruises.

    The way things are going right now in the USA, cruising will probably be banned until next year.

  2. I know someone who already has 4 cruise booked for 2021. She will go as long as the ship sails. Can not change some peoples minds no matter what reasonable facts are presented. Hitler had his followers for a reason and some people will always think they are immune to HIV and Covid 19. You just can not stop some people from drinking the look aid. Some of us rather live for another day

  3. American Airlines can’t figure out how to compete in the three largest US cities (New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago). Their solution to every international route is to move the flight to Dallas.

  4. I don’t see how cruising is more dangerous than flying on commercial jets at the moment. If anything, I have a better chance at social distancing on a cruise. Cruise lines don’t pay any U.S. taxes, so they are easy targets at the moment, which is why they also didn’t receive any government assistance.
