I think there is a lot of overlap between the demographics of cruisers and that of divers, at least recreationally speaking. Both are older, have more time, have more money, and are generally more determined to continue life onwards as they would like.
Interesting to think this was posted a month ago. Life was fairly normal at that time.
If this doesn't nearly kill the cruise industry nothing will.
The latest I hear is the cruise lines want some bail out money from the US government. For ships that are not running the US flag. They mostly all run foreign flags to skirt the US laws and taxes. I say they should get some bailout money but only for the ships flying the US flag and paying the US taxes. Want to register your ship somewhere else, go there and ask for your handout.
