  1. They don't mention the ships names but I assuming since these 3 do Alaska? https://www.sfgate.com/news/bayarea/article/Three-Cruise-Ships-Without-Passengers-Will-Dock-15258260.php
  2. 11 years at the helm and Larry never saw a new ship build to put a stamp on his legacy....what a shame.
  3. Not good news for Carnival Corp: https://nypost.com/2020/04/16/carnival-execs-let-ships-set-sail-despite-coronavirus-threat-report/
  4. Grand Princess ends quarantine will depart SF Bay and will sail out of the bay for marine operations. Crew can freely move about the ship. https://www.ktvu.com/news/grand-princess-quarantine-ends-ship-to-set-sail
  5. If you were a United pilot or flight attendant would you volunteer for their (12 hour) flight back?
  6. Grand crew member passes away: https://www.sfgate.com/bayarea/article/Coronavirus-updates-Grand-Princess-crew-member-15176803.php
  7. Carnival Corporation now kinda like GM back in 09', remember GM had to scale back to decrease costs and get government bailout. Carnival and other lines will surely look to the gov't for a bailout or financial assistance. They eliminated Oldsmobile, Pontiac and Saturn. Whose to say Carnival Corp won't shed a couple lines (HAL, P&O) to stay in business? When this thing is over there will be overcapacity of cruise ships. Just my .02
  8. Just wondering how the cruise lines will move forward (hopefully very Careful), I understand the need for doctors notes and screenings at the pier. But will cruise ships sail at reduced capacity to give proper "social distancing"? I could see ships selling every other cabin (not filling side by side cabins) to maintain a healthy environment.
  9. If this makes it's way in to the homeless population or infects the immune compromised then possibly yes.
  10. We were scheduled to be on the Grand 3/29 cruise, I believe this cruise was the first to use the Medallions. Anyway, I just received our Medallions today in the mail with much chagrin, unusable and what could've been an awesome cruise. I therefore have these beauties on the fireplace mantel, I also considered a spot on our display case in the family room for family and friends to enjoy. If your cruise was cancelled but still received your medallions please tell me how you would display them?
  11. I'm on the 3/29 Grand as well, just waiting for Princess to notify us of the cancellation.

  13. Once the ship debarks passengers it will certainly need a crew to sail out of SFO.
