It's interesting to watch this vlog and see how they are surprised there could be people with covid on the ship. To me it seems inevitable given that it is out of control in so many places right now.
Yeah. I watched the earlier videos they released and it seems the line was doing everything possible. Two tests prior. All of this extra cleaning equipment. Health monitoring during the voyage, etc. But when they crossed the Atlantic and picked up new passengers in Barbados, and well, it only took 1. And towards the end of the video it seems these guys realize that...

In fairness, MSC has been cruising Europe on very specific cruises and by all accounts have had no issues. Although I believe they have cut back operations a bit just recently. Tricky situation...

So the government of Barbados forced all passengers to fly home. No quarantine on the island. No social distancing at the airport or getting on the flight. Packed flight back to the UK.

Edit: those who tested positive either had to stay on the island to quarantine or book a private plane home.

This makes me sad. So many people were hoping to finally start cruising again.
Celebrity, Royal, Disney..we have a ton of emails coming in from all of the cruise lines. I had 2 of my personal cruises cancelled. It's going to be a very busy day.

My parents have a cruise booked in April (deposit only paid so far) and my dad passed away on Christmas Eve. Mom wants to cancel for now and re-book again...someday. Should I call DCL or just wait for the inevitable April sailings to get cancelled? Do they automagially get cancelled?

@DznyGrlSD I'm so sorry to hear about the loss of your father. That terrible to go through at any time, but especially around the holidays. My sincere condolences to you and your mom.

I don't even want to talk about cruising and appear to lessen the significance of your loss. But since you asked, I will try to help. It really boils down to whether your mom needs the deposit money back in her pocket. If finances are tight, she might want to cancel and get the money back. If she doesn't feel like she needs the money now, and she's sure that she's going to re-book, then it makes sense to wait for DCL to cancel and see if they continue to offer the 125% credit.

I will keep your family in thoughts.

I am so sorry for your loss....
I would cancel it sooner rather than later so you are not dealing with everyone trying to get through if they do cancel them. They will cancel them and refund the port fees and taxes as well as prepaid gratuities if you have them. They will not however automatically refund a cruise that they cancelled so you would have to let them know that you want it cancelled.
