Just Another Cruise Line(s) Current Situation Article

Recommended Posts

Just another FYI that probably most folks have viewed from the FT folks ( Financial Times). Tonnage pricing for cruise ship breakers are lowering their / ton payouts. No news there.

 

BTW, this is not intended to be a ‘bad news’ posting, just the current state of the industry by one individual writer. Nothing we didn’t know of or weren’t aware of already.

Be well.

It is a very sad time for all in the cruise industry.

Make that the whole travel industry...I would have nightmares if I could get some sleep, but worries have taken over my nights.

No doubt the mass market lines will continue to retire  ships  for financial survival as the covid cruise lock down elongates.

I agree with you.  Anybody who is dependent on anything to do with travel is hurting.  And, in my opinion much of it is over-reaction based on fear.

Are you also of the opinion that over 200,000 families are over-reacting to the loss of a loved one?  Very sad ...

I have those as well at times.

 

"Dr. rkacruiser" recommends a couple glasses of a nice wine prior to bedtime.  Personally, I enjoy Villa Maria, an excellent New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc.

Haha, yeah, I use a good Rioja Gran Reserva as remedy...we recently moved from Belgium to Sunny Spain, so that kept me busy. Hoping to start working  again in 2 weeks.

I am not fond of heavily oaked wines.  How is what you are drinking in that category?

You won’t like it then... at least 2 years of maturation in oak barrels ( mostly used French and Hungarian oak nowadays) and then minimum 3 Years of ageing in the bottle.

I Googled the wine that you mentioned and I saw the years of maturation in oak.  I'll stick with Villa Maria.
