  1. What this says it that you will see larger ships up and running long before the smaller ships begin sailing again.
  2. A recent article suggests that large ships can break even at 30% capacity: "For our newer ships, you need about 30 percent load factors to kind of break even. And then they skew to about 50 percent load factor on onto our older ships." https://www.*****.com/2020/05/21/royal-caribbeans-newer-ships-break-even-quicker-older-ships
  3. When you put these charts up, you need to include the amount of testing that has been done. The increase in positive results could be the result in an increase in testing,
  4. I honestly doubt that. It did not happen in 1918, and if you look at the amount of people out and about this past weekend without them, you can tell it will fade away eventually. It will become a matter of choice.
  5. Seems like society is split down the middle on this issue.
  6. My wife is a retired physician of 37 years and she says wearing a mask is worse for your health than not wearing one. Lots of different points of view even among professionals.
  7. The decisions about the requirements for passengers to cruise again will be decided by governments and lawyers, not the customer. We do have a choice whether to cruise or not. I can not wear a mask for long periods of time due to hypercapnia exacerbating my asthma and nasal polyps. I will therefore take my vacations dollars elsewhere. Many places in this beautiful country I can drive to that do not require masks. No anger from me towards any one. It is just the way it is.
  8. Correct. Our community already have had two people pass out from wearing a mask. One from just walking, and another from playing pickle ball in a mask (Required to wear one in order to play).
  9. Has someone brought up the research that claims wearing a mask can lead to medical problems? https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5380556/?fbclid=IwAR2pKbqtL8G9A5Nll-o6IGajqZZcvwXy80r59aFiYatyir-jiydDD2ECzeM https://www.vanguardngr.com/2020/05/warning-prolonged-use-of-facemask-produces-hypoxia/?fbclid=IwAR2mBUOVFx5ELKHpfq7ejZXGS6BvHzarbmiN57yyNbSx2HBdadWOwfk2C3o
  10. So this is not Moth balling the ships like they do to warships?
  11. When I was in College back in the 70s, my entire campus was marched down to the assembly hall to get the Swine Flu vaccine. A large majority of the students and staff, including myself, were sick for days. I will wait for a while https://www.discovermagazine.com/health/the-public-health-legacy-of-the-1976-swine-flu-outbreak "The Swine Flu Program was marred by a series of logistical problems ranging from the production of the wrong vaccine strain to a confrontation over liability protection to a temporal connection of the vaccine and a cluster of deaths among an elderly population in Pittsburgh. The most damning charge against the vaccination program was that the shots were correlated with an increase in the number of patients diagnosed with an obscure neurological disease known as Guillain–Barré syndrome. "
  12. I taught high school for 27 years. The thought of all students wearing masks in school is downright scary. It is in open invitation for poor behavior and criminal activity. I can imagine what will happen on cruise ships, in auditoriums, stadiums, and even on the streets.
  13. There is talk that those who took this year's flu shot were more susceptible to COVID-19. You may see a noticeable reduction in the number of people taking the flu shot in the coming years is this is not proven to be wrong.
  14. In the end, it will be the lawyers that make the decisions.
  15. Wow, does that bring back memories! We sailed on her back in 1989. We could only afford an inside closet, er, cabin, but boy did we feel like royalty. I can remember the tender had to "hit the beach" on St. Maarten because their was no dock. We stormed the beach like Marines. I remember that passengers bought so much booze in St. Thomas that they had to send a life boat to bring it back to the ship. The crew line the promenade and slide the boxes on the floor until the got to the door nearest the cabin it was to go to.
