Choose Your Cruise – October 2, 2020
Cruisers, we have an announcement.
At some point today, representatives from the cruise industry will meet with members of the Trump Administration’s Coronavirus task force, including Vice President Michael Pence, to discuss a return to action. We’ve already learned that the CDC is planning on lifting their no-sail order at the end of the month so the only question now is how quickly can a cruise line prepare a ship to sail from an American port?
If you’ve been following Porthole Cruise since the COVID-19 pandemic first started, you may have seen our interview with Norwegian Cruise Line President Harry Sommer, who gave a very positive outlook on how long it would take NCL to staff and prepare a ship.
