    Have a Disney Cruise planned in April - Have a feeling there will be many more Long Beach cautious delay scenarios

    I am worried Long Beach may be a tipping point today. Passengers are still being held pending a test on a single sick passenger. If negative, they will be released. Nobody has said what will be done if positive. I guess they get pushed back out to sea and quarantined? Or they screen every single passenger coming off the boat, which is useless unless they can test each of them.

    This admin needs to standardize a protocol for this and air travel asap.

    There was a cruise cancelled before departing yesterday because sole.of the crew had been in.contact with crew members on the Princess cruise that has 19 infected crew. That's good call.

    Ecuador has 14 confirmed cases and Brazil is on the map as well but South America generally has been much less impacted. Iím kind of in the same boat. Heading to Cartagena then a week in Peru to hike the Inca Trail in early April. Planning on going as of now and taking precautions where possible when traveling.

    If you are on a river cruise in Egypt, please stay away from the snakes.

    Probably more likely that they want your American ass to stay home.

    i went on a river cruise in Europe last fall and got the early version of coronavirus. i almost never get sick and i was having full on night sweats and vomiting. anyway that's the only cruise i have ever been on and my conclusion is that a cruise ship:adult infectious disease::daycare:kids disease.

    State department has issued an advisory that US citizens not cruise.

    Passengers on Cruise Ships

    U.S. citizens, particularly travelers with underlying health conditions, should not travel by cruise ship. CDC notes increased risk of infection of COVID-19 in a cruise ship environment. In order to curb the spread of COVID-19, many countries have implemented strict screening procedures that have denied port entry rights to ships and prevented passengers from disembarking. In some cases, local authorities have permitted disembarkation but subjected passengers to local quarantine procedures. While the U.S. government has evacuated some cruise ship passengers in recent weeks, repatriation flights should not be relied upon as an option for U.S. citizens under the potential risk of quarantine by local authorities.

    This is a fluid situation. CDC notes that older adults and travelers with underlying health issues should avoid situations that put them at increased risk for more severe disease. This entails avoiding crowded places, avoiding non-essential travel such as long plane trips, and especially avoiding embarking on cruise ships. Passengers with plans to travel by cruise ship should contact their cruise line companies directly for further information and continue to monitor the Travel.state.gov website and see the latest information from the CDC: https://www.cdc.gov/quarantine/cruise/index.html.

    Countdown until Trump allocates some of the $8 billion emergency bill to help bail out the cruise line industry.

    Cruise ships being the main carrier of this disease into the U.S. is not surprising at all. They're all cesspools.

    Can't be long until air travel is pinched as well.
