  1. I love all the optimism here, it always adds a couple more rays of sunshine. Carnival will do what the need to do.
  2. I will end with this post on this thread until the CDC gets off its butt and takes action. I understand your view f the CDC. I have a different one. They are the center for disease control. My view of their performance with the entire virus (more than as it relates to cruising) is way different than yours (which I respect). Their recommendations have changed greatly, sometimes on the same day. Their management contradicts itself on preset releases, I can go on and on. You have made the point various times that they set the requirements and the cruise lines had done little or nothing to mitigate. If true, and the cruise lines were stumbling or having issues, then the CDC should assist. Without getting into the politics that some here desperately want to do, they cannot get along with our own government. In my view, and it light of the current place we are at with battling the virus, I think they are doing a particularly lousy job. The view is not of them having a vendetta, but the evidence, or lack thereof is fairly damning. The bottom line is cruises need to resume and need to start somewhere. Wouldn’t the world be better off of the CDC was their partner in doing so instead of the albatross around their necks. Just my 2 cents.
  3. My post on their performance was in relation to the virus.
  4. I have no idea. I doubt with the current virus conditions they will allow ships to sail. They could always be proactive.....naw, that would be stepping up to do their job proficiently. That said, they are failing our country big time, so one more announcement in that light will not hurt.
  5. They will do nothing till tomorrow to show they still have control
  6. The cdc slow to act waiting game continues..... https://www.seatrade-cruise.com/ship-operations/us-based-cruise-industry-waiting-game
  7. True, the people you talk to on the phone are just looking at what you are looking at.
  8. You are correct it is very misleading, they do that very well.
  9. Missed all the fun so far. Typical confusion from the cdc. I can only guess (because they did a lousy job of saying it( this means they will not extend the no sail order.
