CCL ship to start sailing!!!

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I read that Costa Cruise (another subsidiary of Carnival like Princess) is sailing next month!! Should (1) help stock price (2) give an insight into what cruises might look like next year ❣

 

IMHO this is great news!! That's a few up and running. Hurtigruten, MSC, and now Costa 🇨🇷 😍

Costa is MSC's biggest competitor in Europe.
If MSC has started then Costa cannot lag behind

COSTA CRUISES OBTAINS RINA BIOSAFETY TRUST CERTIFICATION, INTRODUCES COVID-19 TESTS FOR ALL GUESTS ON BOARD ITS SHIPS
 

https://www.carnivalcorp.com/news-releases/news-release-details/costa-cruises-obtains-rina-biosafety-trust-certification
 

Here’s part of that news release:

 

“Based on the actual epidemiological situation and considering the opinion of experts, from the first departure of the Costa Deliziosa, scheduled for September 6 from Trieste, and to follow on all ships that will return later into operations, the company will perform the antigenic Covid-19 swab tests to all embarking guests.


The test will be carried out within the wider pre-boarding procedures that have been defined according to the protocols of the health authorities and the Costa Safety Protocol. The quick antigenic test will identify any suspicious cases that may be subjected to a PCR test for further check, thus determining the possibility of embarkation. The company is also offering its guests the option to subscribe a dedicated insurance, with specific services in case of need”.

"For its part, Hurtigruten has retained lawyers while its internal investigation is proceeding. The company hired DNV GL to conduct an independent investigation into the entire situation. In the meantime, its expedition cruise ships have all been laid up but its Norwegian coastal service is continuing as it is considered a form of vital transportation for people, mail, and cargo. When news of the situation first broke, Norway also again closed its ports to all cruise ships with more than 100 passengers while it investigated this incident".

I view these cruises starting the same as I read about airlines starting to fly domestic and internationally, don't be fooled one bit that this will meaningful cover their huge loses.   

 

Of course the stock price may for a bit act short term dont' confuse the dead cat bounce or catch that falling knife at the wrong moment, LOL

Thank you for finding the answer to my question. I had a feeling that it was only the essential services that were continuing and not the cruises.

How would all this talk-talk and cheering get us closer to cruising?

 

What we need are solutions and successful programs. You could do something positive. Work in your community to encourage people to social distance and wear masks.

 

We'll cruise again once the epidemic is under control.
