    So what is the protocol for guest who test positive ? We will be quarantined for sure till the next port/hospital. Medical insurance does not cover covid. How do we get back home?

    I would say cruising is extremely risky during the Covid – 19 pandemic because people on the ship go to different places on different decks per day, Cruise ships are much bigger than airplanes, they can carry a lot more passengers than airplanes, people may have a false negative or they may have the virus even if they test negative but I guess it depends on the safety procedures that Cruise will use then it probably will be safer but not safe.

    Not safe at all, they are breeding grounds for germs and viruses, look at past things such as vomiting bugs food poisoning, diarrhoea etc, what can you expect all crammed aboard in a tiny space. 🖕

    according to a recent report about a cruise ship that put out to see with paid passengers, already has an out break of coronavirus. IN conclusion, cruise ships are not safe at all, nor are baseball games for the players.

    On second thought, maybe it was too soon.
    One of the first cruise ships in the world to resume sailing since the coronavirus-caused worldwide halt to cruising in March is experiencing a significant outbreak of the illness that already has sent several people to the hospital.
    Norwegian expedition cruise company Hurtigruten late Friday said four sick crew members from the 535-passenger Roald Amundsen were admitted to the University Hospital of North Norway in Tromsø, Norway, earlier in the day after the vessel docked in the city. All four had tested positive for COVID-19.
    For more cruise news, reviews and tips, sign up for TPG’s new cruise newsletter.
    On Saturday, the line said another 32 crew members had tested positive for the illness.
    The Roald Amundsen on Friday had just finished a seven-night sailing out of Tromsø to the Arctic’s wildlife-filled Svalbard archipelago.
    All four of the hospitalized crew members had been sick for several days while on board the vessel, and all four had been placed in isolation. But the line said their symptoms weren’t consistent with COVID-19. They only tested positive for the illness after the ship docked in Tromsø early Friday.
    It’s unclear if the crew members are seriously ill, or if they only are being hospitalized as a way to keep them isolated.

    The entire ship has now been placed in isolation, and the 154 remaining crew members on board have all been tested for COVID-19. Hurtigruten on Saturday said 122 of the crew members had tested negative for the illness.

    The CDC doesn't have the manpower to monitor the ports. Basically, the CDC is inadequatein its capabilities to keep people safe. That is the only reason. Commercial airlines are the absolute worse for the transmitting of covid-19. So tired of the news media ripping apart cruise ships when the airlines are the worst. You notice the virus is still spreading like crazy and no ships are moving. mmm how is that happening.

    When the Diamond Princess arrived in Yokohama Japan 9/10ths of the world didn’t have a clue what we were dealing with

    The Ruby Princess was mishandled in Sydney Australia
    Doctor Sean Tobin New South Wales Health Authority testified under oath and said
    “The Ruby Princess was mishandled”

    The next time I board a cruise ship I will be mildly Irradiated by the full body scanner at the cruise terminal.

    Once onboard the surfaces I touch will have been electro statically fogged with disinfectant

    The air I breath will be filtered and ironised

    While I’m asleep in my cabin Robots emitting high intensity UV light will be cleaning the public areas of the ship that I’m going to be using

    Apart from a hospital or a laboratory
    I can’t think of anywhere else on Earth that this will be happening.

    Cruise ships are just shittier hotel resorts where you can’t leave and law doesn’t exist and the food is stale and prepackaged and you’re on a giant polluting monstrosity. They’ve never been fun and anyone who prefers them is lying to themselves.

    No word about the ventilationsystem and the airconditioning on board?!?
    Airborne transmission is the reason why hundreds of passengers
    ( even healthy young soldiers on battleships ) get infected in a few days.
    So ships can be a safe place if you make the ventilation system coronaproof i.e. less recirculation and more use of fresh air, avoid low humidity, use of (HEPA) filters and maybe UV light or ionisation to desinfect the air.

    Why are you so scared return to normal? other people return to normal after recovering from other illnesses/viruses also we move on when someone close to us dies, it should be no different with the corona.
    I recommended seeking a psychologist.

    Majority of covid cases were transmitted via fligjts.
    New York City got infected via flights from Europe; not China, or cruises..

    Avoid Cruise ships at ALL cost.

    They use very low/ basically paid slave labor.
    They are mainly used to avoid taxes.
    They dont care about murder or rape. They pretty much tell you "Tough luck". Since they are on the seas the law doesnt matter.

    I will make a prediction if these companies try to reopen before we have a vaccine. There will be another out break on on at least 1 and the will kill the cruise industry. The reality is that cruise ships are floating petri dishes and every few years a new disease emerges on a cruise ship. It will happen again.
