  1. What are the other codes that you would like deciphered?
  2. For the fax number see https://www.carnivalcorp.com/static-files/50351a91-4dc0-4f6b-bfec-684647e6129f
  3. Your sources are incorrect! "Generally, the coastwise laws prohibit the transportation of passengers or merchandisebetween points in the United States embraced within the coastwise laws in any vessel other than a vessel built in, documented under the laws of, and owned by citizens of the United States. The coastwise law pertaining to the transportation of merchandise is known as the Jones Act, codified at 46 U.S.C. § 55102. The coastwise law pertaining to the transportation of passengers is known as the Passenger Vessel Services Act (PVSA),codified at 46 U.S.C. § 55103." That is from: https://www.cbp.gov/sites/default/files/assets/documents/2019-Sep/PVSA-ICP.pdf You can look up the actual full text of the codes at the Congressional web site.
  4. That is one form of it but there is also a spit based one under development.
  5. I am not interested out of San Pedro but might be interested out of San Francisco. Sadly the Grand will no longer sail out of San Francisco.
  6. Supposedly spit tests for the active virus are becoming available as are antibody tests. Both of these types of tests supposedly are fairly rapid. Question is how sensitive and how accurate are they.
  7. You need to send an email to Princess support describing the problem. They will get IT to fix your account.
  8. Only if you get rid of the buttons and bring back a lever over a fancy brass plaque for the operator to use! 😉
  9. From the bit that I watched of that I noticed that he was on a Celebrity Cruise Line ship. Conditions very from line to line. If you search on the web you will find a number of Princess crew videos that discuss their life and working conditions.
  10. The deaths reported as CoVID-19 are in excess to what was the normal number of people that die every day.
  11. It is also reported that they are laying off 450 people based in the UK. https://www.theguardian.com/business/2020/may/14/cruise-firm-carnival-slashes-jobs-and-pay-in-face-of-covid-19-crisis
  12. Does the CDC have control of the US Navy? (At least the crew on cruise ships do not sleep in an area with 10 or 20 other people in racks which may also be hot bunked). Neither has he called aircraft "petri dishes" even though community spread CoVID-19 entered the USA via carriers on aircraft long before any indication of ships being involved.
  13. I have been tracking them on marinetraffic.com. There is no next port shown. I would not be surprised if the Grand and the Star stay there for a while at anchor. I have seen smaller ships fuelled and provisioned at Puerto Vallarta. They could always go down the coast to Manzanillo for additional provisions as that is a major seaport.
  14. Yes, and certain naval vessels have outbreaks of CovID-19
