  1. You know, I don't support the work of churches and common prayers during an extremely contagious epidemic, but people can still be understood. Perhaps their faith keeps them from despair. But then Church officials still have to persuade parishioners to refrain from visiting churches and pray at home. Perhaps if such people are not affected by the requests of the government, then the requests of the priests will be affected? For them, they are more authoritative, probably...
  2. Perhaps these changes you are talking about will turn out to be for the better. At the very least, I think, the requirements for safety and sanitary conditions on ships and in ports will be tightened. For companies, of course, it will bring additional costs, but for passengers it will be just fine. So...
  3. Wow! And I envy You! I love the North and generally when it's snowing and cold❄️. I wish I lived in Canada, but I would love to go there ^_^
  4. Oh, congratulations to you! 🥰You're very good at not getting discouraged 'cause in fact this is the best way to spend the time of self-isolation with benefit. And you're sooo damn right about boredom for old habits! Yes! But what to do... And about online training... I started learning Swedish myself 🙂 I didn't have time for this before so it's a great opportunity to do it now
  5. Well, it's hard for any private business right now. This, unfortunately, is logical. But people have to live and earn money somehow, don't they? So let's see what measures the government will take to support businesses
  6. Lol, funny 🙂 I recently saw a picture where the disappearance of tyrannosaurus was explained by the fact that the planet was attacked by an ancient coronavirus, and they could not protect themselves and wash their hands because of it were too short. Crazy, but funny 😀 😇 😷
  7. Now this discussion seems rather sad. I wonder how many of the guys who wrote here will still have cruises?
  8. I agree with you. The word COVIDiot was invented for a reason. So many people could protect themselves and others just by sitting at home. On the other hand, we are now seeing a real example of the courage and heroism of our doctors, grocery store workers and transport services. I hope that in peaceful time we won't stop appreciating this less.
  9. How sad it is... I wish your friend a speedy recovery and let everything be fine! Unfortunately, the virus can now be obtained anywhere. As for the news, it's already kind of scary to watch and listen to all this, it's really scary. But we need to be informed and not believe in delusional rumors
  10. Oh, your comment seems so depressing😥. 'Cause it is true, spring, and we all want some kind of renewal, both externally and internally. And if there're no problems with "pumping" internal resources (because there's a lot of free time in the quarantine), then the situation with external updates takes a very unpleasant turn, and this is very sad. But all in all I suppose everything will be alright so please hold on and believe in the best❤️
  11. I almost always wear makeup, but the quarantine has made some changes in this part of my life😅. I haven't left my house much for a week (just to buy food) and I don't wear makeup here. At home, I periodically do masks, manicure, of course, but in general I give the skin a rest. She deserves it😂
  12. I think so too. I would just like to add that in order to restore the trust of potential customers, cruise lines must offer something new in the field of transportation security. Now people are scared, and this is a necessary measure to restore trust. Accordingly, this requires money, which, as you said, some will not have. Plus, I think there may be stricter requirements for cruises on the part of the state, which also entails costs. After all, now many seemingly completely private companies are affected (and this is logical) to the influence of state and measures it takes to stop the epidemic
  13. Awww, so cute!😊 An excellent example of competent actions during self-isolation. I'm very happy for you, and I'd like to wish that all families have everything as nice and cozy as yours 🙂
  14. I complete agree with you. Without this, it is stupid to do anything. And in general, all the arguments about the future, including the future of cruises, are now exclusively assumed-subjective. We are waiting for official news and hope for the best.
  15. I am not an economist or an expert on this topic, so I will just say my opinion. Of course, the coronavirus will have a devastating impact on many companies that organize cruises, perhaps this whole situation will lead to a tightening of many rules in the cruise industry (for example, to avoid cases like the Diamond Princess), but in general, globally, the industry is not threatened. As I have already said, those companies that have the resources and wisdom to adapt to the current situation will "stay afloat", and there will always be a demand for cruises. In addition, it seems to me that when the pandemic ends, the demand for various leisure activities including cruises, will increase significantly: people will get tired of sitting at home and being constantly restless. They will want to relax. But this, of course, will only happen when the danger has completely passed.
