The problem here is even if you let the passengers off...the new passengers would arrive, and one or two of the crew would just pass it onto the new group.

I’ve been on one of those giant cruise ships exactly once. I’m not likely to do it again, and I didn’t have a bad experience.

Floating people around out in the ocean appears to be an ironclad quarantine.

I don’t get the point of a ‘cruise ship’. Why would anyone go on one? You can’t fish and you could eat and drink cheaper on shore.

Never been on one nor want to. Seems that every month one ship has some major illness or other issue. 6k trapped. ..not my idea of a fun vacation.

If it’s coronavirus, 140 of them won’t make it.

Panic.
Just what the elites and the MSM want.
Reminds me of the SARS panic back in ‘03.

It’s a floating hotel - you can visit many cities without checking in and out of rooms and struggling with luggage. Appealing to older travelers and people with kids. Not appealing to those who dislike crowds and disease. Pick your priorities.

Bound to happen...

I love to cruise, but a cruise ship is a petri dish even under the best of circumstances.
