I am not crying over it. It was insane killing local tourist business and looked like horror especially in small harbor towns and cities like Venice. Cruise passengers didn't leave a lot of money in those locations if any. Cruise ships are powered by one of the dirtiest oil fuel it is not environmentally friendly comparing it to planes! Tell me where those cruise ships will be scrapped, because I want to sit with a beer and have fun watching it.

The cruise lines will depend on verifying people are vaccinated to restart their businesses. Most of the Caribbean cruises originate in Florida. Which makes it all the more confusing that the governor of Florida would ban the use of vaccine passports. How are cruises supposed to restart if they can’t verify people are vaccinated?

I would've shut down the company immediately as it became clear the west was pursuing lockdowns cause that was never gonna end well, you cannot hide from diseases so in perpetuity you're gonna get wave after wave after wave until eventually governments see the cost is too great to afford continuous lockdowns, but that would take more than a year and they'd prioritize everything except cruising, so shutting down the companies ASAP would've made sense.

Watching this video the day After a 5 day cruise in Italy with MSC Grandiosa... This ship Is weekly cruising from last September with only a month stop in the Christmas time due to Government restrictions. You have to do a Covid test 96 hours before the Cruise start. You make a Covid test the Hour before going onboard and a Covid test before desembarkartion. No One Is allowed to go out of the ship in the ports stop unless you book an escursion with MSC

Cruise ships were a horrible product BEFORE the pandemic. Going on a "POOP Cruise" or riding the sex barge as the Love Boat used to be called, has no desirable traits AT ALL! It's crazy and bizarre. Shut these ugly things down, chop them up and recycle the metal. They're junk. The idea that people would actually consider them a "vacation" is bewildering.

Wow !!!!!! I Only Come Across This Channel By Accident and I am Blow Away With It's Detailed //. Concise Financial analogy of how the cruise industry will survive beyond Covid I just wonder why governments of the world and in my case in the UK could not make the same financial analogies as all they seem to do is 2+2 == 5. !!!!! The hundreds of billions of pounds we are in debt defies calculation due to COVID-19 with the reprehensible and juvenile financial analogies made by the UK government. I think The UK government should learn something from these very talented people who run the cruise industry on fiscal management !!!!!! But Alas I fear their egos are far too insignificant to be taught 2+2 equals 4. !!!!!!!

The world has a whole has not missed them. Vacations for the rich and self-entitled. Many Countries and Cities are re-evaluating their impact and are they really needed. The Vloggers , read Travel Agents, are continually whining about the CDC, yet, we are in a Pandemic and they fail to realise that cruises are at the bottom of the priority list.

It's been over a year since covid started, my company didn't close even for a single day. I havnt changed anything in my life like washing my hands more or using sanitiser. I refuse to wear a mask and I still go shopping and see my friends just like before covid over a year ago. I havnt got sick and i don't know anyone who has either. It's really mind-blowing how everyone has reacted to this.

The moral of the story beingȘ set money aside for rainy days. All those tourist spots that closed down did so because they spent all their profit as soon as they made it. Small business owners, especially in high-tourism regions tends to live fast and loose with their profit. In normal years it barely keeps them afloat until the next season, because they spend it on useless shit like new cars, home renovations and stuff like that.
