Tough crowd! I got the humor. How on earth are cruise ships still operating? They should have been closed down weeks go. Seriously what sort of person would have voluntarily gotten on a cruise ship in recent weeks?Nick Rockel it was a 30 day cruise. Probably set sail before any of it was bad. Maybe read the article. I read the article, the voyage commenced on March 7th. The first coronavirus announcement from the ill fated Diamond Princess was on February 3rd! There was a proliferation of information of the 712 confirmed cases and 10 deaths aboard that single ship before this cruise. It’s amazing how many are proving the stats that 69% of people don’t read the article before commenting.
