    That’s set the cat among the pigeons, How will Carnival react with all their other brands sailing in that area?

          I don't blame them - they have the Olympic Games later this year.

            Why would that matter, if the virus is still around in 6 months will they stop any athletes coming in?

                Strange how they all quote WHO stats but completely ignore their advice

                    Update:

                    Diamond princess cruise cancelled.

                    Full refund plus air, hotel, excursions plus FCC equivalent to cruise fare paid.

                      At least those that got to Japan can make plans rather than hanging about waiting to see when the ship gets cleared.

                      Those on lockdown waiting to disembark have yet to find out their fate.

                        Quarantined for two weeks, not allowed to leave their cabins and at least ten passengers have the virus.

                          Was just going to check where things were on this, I start with the ship trackers

                          Left port around midday local time(+9), needs to be out at sea to do some things like make potable water and discharge.
                          reports are new supplies will happen on its return.

                              Watched a guy give a live facebook type interview on BBC Breakfast.

                              He was lucky, he had a balcony cabin. Those with Insides were confined to four walls.

                              Each meal was delivered direct to cabins and he said it was nothing close to normal cruise fare................Wilba
